    Dream Whip has a very different consistency than Cool Whip. With Dream Whip the pie has a stiff fluffy cream pie texture and less calories. Cool Whip may produce a much runnier pie and adds lots of calories. Dream Whip is the key ingredient for fluffiness and for making it LOWER in calories. - 3/20/08

    This recipe is AMAZING!!! You can take out the coconut and use other flavorings or change out the vanilla pudding for different flavor to add variety. I make a different dream pie every week. - 1/6/09

    I would love to try this...can anyone tell me how to toast the coconut and graham crackers? - 1/7/09

    Reply from ELAINEHN (1/9/09)
    I toast the coconut by spreading it out on a large cookie sheet or jelly roll pan and placing it in a very low oven (300f or 350f) for a few minutes. I don't know the exact time (maybe 5-10 mintues)I just keep checking on it and stirring it around occasionally untill it gets lightly brown.

    So delicious!! I made this for my mom's birthday, and she loved it. Everybody was commenting on how flavorful and rich it was, and nobody had a clue that it was so low-cal! Thank you so much, will definitely make this again! - 8/21/10

    This sounds amazing! I can already see myself changing it up with banana pudding, chocolate, vanilla...I even have a few boxes of pumpkin spice pudding mix left over from the fall (although I may omit the coconut for that). Thanks and I can't wait to try! - 5/27/09

    sounds good I might try to change this recipe a little by using a light cool whiip and omitting the milk & dream whip - 12/2/07

    Reply from ELAINEHN (8/26/08)
    Cool Whip Free is not the same as Dream Whip ... using it will definitely change the calorie content as well as the finished texture of the pie - it won't be as 'stiff' or have the more 'authentic' cream pie texture. But i bet it will still taste yummy! Enjoy!

    Are you saying you cut the pie in 12 rather than 8? That would be hard to do? What would the nutritional values be if you used 8 now that I just got a pie 8 divider. No rating yet It isin the refrigerator for 4 hours now. Bigger than Joanna Lund recipes - 3/14/13

    I have made my version of this for years and never got a runny pie with the cool whip. I use less milk with the puddings. I also use SF Fat free cheesecake pudding . LIttle boys love it with chocolate pudding... - 7/31/12

    I thought it was very good. A little sweet but still good. I did it in dessert bowls without the crust. Next time I might add a touch more milk. - 1/7/09

    Use fat free cool whip, skim milk instead of dream whip and you can either use a reduced fat crust OR make your own with reduced fat graham crackers and Olivio spray. - 1/24/08

  • I cut the recipe in half because I live alone and did not use a crust to save on calories. I also had some lite coconut milk on hand and used that in place of the skim milk. Found you don't need to each much of this to feel satisfied. Really liked it! - 2/1/14
