Coconut & Chocolate {kind of like Mounds} Pudding Pie

I'm totally a surfer now. Like, professional-ish.

I went to a free Surfset class that CG Arena hosted tonight. Think surfboards strapped to exercise balls... then do lots of fitnessy things on top of those wobbly core-killers. oohhh, it burned so gooood. And then they gave us all Zico Coconut Water (and coconut water chapstick!)

So, now that I am all professional-ish, I'd better move to Hawaii or southern Cali and start eating my weight in coconuts.... mmmmmm, wouldn't that be the life?


Guess I'll start with this pie. I actually made this like a year ago and never posted it-- I am so sorry!
The recipe includes instructions for a "lightened up" graham cracker crust, but if smashing grahams with your iron fists is just not your thang, please feel free to buy the pre-made crusts at the grocery store.

Coconut Chocolate {kind of like Mounds} Pudding Pie

Crust:
1.5 cups of graham cracker crumbs (about 1 plastic package smashed)
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3-4 tbs non-fat plain yogurt (greek is great)
2 tbs brown sugar

-Preheat oven to 350*. In a medium bowl, mix together all ingredients  Press firmly and evenly into a 9" pie pan. Bake for 5mins- set aside to cool completely.

Filling:
1 (1.4oz) box Jell-0 Coconut Cream instant pudding mix
1 3/4 cups milk
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

Beat pudding mix, milk, and coconut flakes with a whisk in a medium sized bowl for 2 mins. Pour into cooled pie crust. Chill in fridge.

Topping:
Melt 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips and drizzle over pudding once it's set.



So, ummm..... cowabunga, y'all!
