  1. Oh, I m so happy to hear that the pie was a hit, Rebecca! I m sorry, though, that your coconut milk didn t cooperate. I recently read that a lot of brands of canned coconut milk have started adding an ingredient that makes it less likely to whip successfully. I m going to have to do a little more research and adapt this recipe accordingly, if necessary At any rate, I m glad your family enjoyed this key lime pie! ??


    1. Yes I had issues at first did you use coconut cream?
