Can you ever go wrong with pie? I mean, really. There are so many classic flavors and I love every single one of them. Apple, peach, blueberry, cherry – please don’t ask me to pick a favorite. As great as the classics are, sometimes it’s fun to switch it up a bit. Not long ago the idea came to me to try a mocha coconut variety, inspired by a popular frozen coffee beverage from the even more popular coffee shop chain. Coffee, chocolate and coconut? Yes, please.
Let me just tell you, this flavor combo translates amazingly well to pie. We start out with flaky espresso pie crust, which is clearly the beginning of something fantastic. This is filled with rich, smooth mocha pudding. The whole thing is finished off with a borderline obscene amount of coconut whipped cream, toasted coconut flakes and a generous drizzle of chocolate syrup – just like the drink that inspired it. If you’re looking for something a bit out of the ordinary, this might be just the thing you need.
