I was thrilled when Tropical Traditions contacted me about doing another review and giveaway for them because I really love their products. I picked the Coconut Cream Concentrate, since it just sounded delicious. And it didn't disappoint. When I opened the jar and took a whiff, it smelled just like coconut cream pie. My husband immediately stirred some into his coffee, and he was smitten. So smitten that he pleaded to take it to work so he could use it in his coffee there. We may be diplomatically dividing the jar.
Coconut Cream Pie:
2 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup melted coconut cream concentrate
1 1/2 cups milk
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flaked coconut
2 unbaked 9 inch deep dish pie shells
Beat eggs with mixer until lemon colored. Stir in sugar and flour. Blend in butter, coconut cream concentrate, milk and vanilla. Add coconut last. Pour into pie shells. Bake at 325* for 55 minutes or done. Yield: 2 pies.
Pierce said, "I could eat this pie EVERY DAY". Cort said, "YUMMY!" and Reid said, "I want more pie!" I made these pies around lunch time. We ate an entire pie before the day was over. It was that good. Next year, for Thanksgiving? I'm making this!

Your pie looks beautiful and so good!
I wonder if this would be good to just spread on toast? Or maybe throw a little in the crockpot with orange juice and a chicken. Yum!
It's too early in the morning to be making me crave pie!
If I win, I will use it on toast!

I'd use the coconut cream for my Chocolate Coconut Easter Eggs. Think mounds bars- but better:)
Total coconut love!!! I will be making this, and SOON!
That looks so tasty! My husband uses coconut oil in his coffee.
You had me at pie! I would definitely make a pie too. :)
Your pie recipe sounds great!

My Hubs loves coconut cream pie, so that is probably what I would make with it.
Got to skip this one - I don't like coconut and I know it is good for you! sandie
Lisa, my tummy is asking for a slice of this yummy looking pie! Well, if not a slice, how about a fork full? No! Then, I suppose I'll just have to close...sigh, my tummy is now begging out loud! lol! Hugs
Interesting product and it looks like it made a great pie.
Now what a crazy question...what would I make?!?! I would make that darn pie, that's what...so I'm hoping I'll win!!!...:)JP
Wow...I'd give big money for that pie right now. I know my mum uses coconut cream, but I'll take the pie! :D
I just know that pie is sooooo yummy, and we would love a bite!
This looks great. Huge coconut fans here. Looks like a product I want to try.

Love this give away! If we won I would probably use it to make some smoothies or some cookies! Yum!
The pie looks really good! I have never heard of this, wish they sold it in the grocery store!
I think your husband's idea about the coffee sounds fantastic!
to be honest, I was thinking to use it in a pie myself... and your recipe looks extremely easy and delicious!
Well yummie...that pie sounds delicious. My Mom always made a good coconut cream pie. Never heard of that concentrate, will have to check into that one.
How did you know coconut cream pie is my favorite? It looks very yummy!
It would probably be a pie. I have never attempted anything like that before. Thank you
I would love to make that coconut cream pie.

I love coconut cream pie and am now wondering if I have the ingredients on hand to make one....hmmmm
I would try to make some sort of cookie :)
I'd like to try the Coconut Cream Pie...it looks delicious!
Yum! I'm a coconut lover. I think people either love or hate it. Can't wait to see who wins!
yum, looks like a great pie...I am such a coconut lover and I have a friend who makes her own lotions and she has a coconut banana parfait and is it lovely!
If I won, I'd love to use this to make a chocolatey-coconut pie or maybe even experiment with brownies. Thanks so much!
I would make Raspberry Coconut Cream Pie:
I use coconut cream for alot of our dishes. I grew up in the Indian Ocan coast and coconut is a main ingredient in our food.. use it in rice, vegetables, meat, bananas etc. Even making rice patties or cakes.. So I would really love to try this. I have been substituting coconut cream powder when I cook.
Definetly coconut cream pie and with Easter coming up....coconut cream eggs!

Now you've gone and made me hungry for pie.
I'd like to try smores with coconut cream replacing corn-syrupy marshallows. Crossing fingers, toes and paws! Thx for the chance to win!
I read that you can use it to make pudding. I can't do gelatin and so this seems so exciting!!!
I'd try the pie.
Coconut Cream Brownies!
They would go over very well in my house.
I've never heard of this stuff but will absolutely be keeping my eye out for it even if I don't win!
I would try a pie just like yours.
I think coconut cream pie, or coconut cream brownies...I have never tried it before, but it sounds just so yummy!

Idk what I would "make" but I'm a coffee drinker and your husband's idea sounds amazing. I think I could make some amazing cookies with this
Coconut cream sounds wonderful. I have some lovely coconut to make it with, if you supply the cream. Yummy. Thanks.
I'm thinking a pound cake would be amazing with this, Lisa. Your pie looks great.
I'm going to use it in candy.
I love the taste of coconut...this looks good! :)
I would make coconut muffins with it!

We'd make ice cream with it, or may be a banana coconut freeze
I would definitely make this pie or maybe a flan.

Hmm I like cat's suggestion.
I would make cookies
