- 1 refrigerated pie crust
- 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

- 4 packages ( 3 1/2 oz size) vanilla instant pudding mix
- 3/4 teaspoon coconut extract
- 16 ounces Cool Whip

- Set the pie crust aside to cool and reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees.
- Combine the cream cheese, milk and coconut cream in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer about 4 minutes until no lumps remain. Beat in the pudding mix and coconut extract until well blended.
- Fold in 1 cup of Cool Whip into the cream cheese mixture. Spoon into the cooled pie crust and top with the remaining Cool Whip.
