A few months ago my husband went grocery shopping for me. I had asked him to pick up Silk Almondmilk, but he accidentally picked up Silk Coconutmilk instead. He felt bad when he realized his mistake and offered to go back to the store to exchange it. However, I decided it would be the perfect opportunity time to try Silk Coconutmilk.
My kids and I enjoyed with the taste of the Silk Vanilla Coconutmilk. It is seriosuly delicious! It has a rich vanilla flavor with a hint of coconut. Silk Coconutmilk also has a creamy, smooth texture which makes it perfect for cooking and baking. I have used it in cookies, cakes, puddings, and pies and have been pleased with the results.
It is easy to get stuck in a rut and buy the same foods out of habit. I am so glad that we discovered Silk Coconutmilk by accident.

German Chocolate Pie with Coconut Pie Crust
I wanted to create a naturally gluten-free and dairy-free pie for my family, so I decided to make German Chocolate Pie using Silk Vanilla Coconutmilk in place of dairy and using coconut to create a delicious gluten-free crust for the pie.
To make a coconut pie crust all you have to do is combine shredded coconut with coconut oil and press it into a greased pie pan.
You can use your hands or a measuring cup with a flat bottom to press the coconut mixture into place.
The filling is made by combing cocoa powder, shortening, egg yolks, sugar, vanilla, and Silk Coconutmilk.
The key to creating a smooth pie filling is whisking it constantly while cooking it on the stove.
To make the topping for your German Chocolate Pie, combine egg yolks, brown sugar, coconut oil, vanilla, Silk Vanilla Coconutmilk and cook it until it thickens. Then add shredded coconut, and pecans.
The topping will need to cool for about 30 minutes before you can place on the chocolate pie filling. Allow the pie to chill for an additional hour before serving.
