Coconut Summer Squash Pie
Although I have made a mock coconut pie before with summer squash, that recipe here did not have any real coconut in it. I thought the pie would be better with some unsweetened coconut added instead of relying only on the extract for flavor. The summer squash always grows well for us in our garden so I’m always trying to use it for more than just a steamed vegetable side dish for dinner. I like this recipe a little better than the one I posted last year because this one adds coconut.
3 cups summer squash, grated
1 ⅓ cups equivalent sugar substitute (I used liquid sucralose)
½ cup melted butter
1 tbsp coconut extract
1 tbsp coconut flour
¾ cup unsweetened flaked coconut
Reserve 1/4 cup coconut for topping, Place the remaining ingredients in a blender until well mixed. Pour into pie pan or prepared unbaked low carb crust. Sprinkle reserved coconut on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until custard is set and coconut topping is browned.
