    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 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.

    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

    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!
