Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: Kathy Przywara


2 pkgs unflavored gelatin
2 cups pineapple juice
2/3 cups sugar
1 15 oz can coconut milk
1 9 inch graham cracker pie crust


Make Graham Cracker Crust and set aside to cool. This recipe works with regular or gluten free graham crackers.

Soften gelatin in 1/2 cup pineapple juice. Heat remaining juice to boiling and pour over softened gelatin. Stir until all is dissolved. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Add coconut milk and stir to blend well. Refrigerate several hours until almost set. This may separate into layers – that’s okay. Using hand mixer, beat at high speed until smooth and fluffy. Pour into prepared graham cracker crust. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Refrigerate until set.


This filling can be used as a pudding/mousse type dessert also. Just make to the point of whipping, put in individual dessert cups and refrigerate until set. Also looks nice as “layers” in glass parfait glasses. Fill parfait cups with mixture and allow to set. Do not whip.

This has not been tried with vegan/Kosher gelatin.

Can use homemade coconut milk to replace canned.

Do not use fresh pineapple juice as it contains an enzyme which inhibits gelatin from setting.

Coconut: Although classified by the FDA as a tree nut, coconut is not a common allergen and is not related to tree nuts. If you have a tree nut allergy, consult your physician to find out if you need to avoid coconut.
Milk and Soy Substitutions: Alternative dairy-free milk beverages and products will work in most recipes. Find out more about milk substitutions and soy substitutions.
