This is a pie like no other! It is filled with coconut cream, maraschino cherries, pecans and toasted coconut. But what makes this such a perfect pie is the crushed pineapple with all the other ingredients.
That is the Pina in Pina Colada. Pina Colado is so awesome, there is a song with those words!
Just kidding, the Pina Colada is famous for the flavor combination of all the ingredients combined on a graham cracker crust. This is a pie that should be served on a hot summer day!
It is so cool, so refreshing and so creamy. Some people do call this the Hawaiian Pie, quite understandable with all the tropical flavor.
This Pina Colada Pie is beyond amazing! Every bite is filled with toasted coconut with a graham cracker crust and a creamy coconut filling with crushed pineapple, crunchy pecans, and maraschino cherries.
You can’t go wrong with this coconut and pineapple dessert.

When I placed the Hawaiian Pina Colada pie on the dessert table, it disappeared right before my eyes. The best part is you can add extra flavors to the pie too. So no matter who you are feeding, they will love it!
