    Recipe Notes

    Fresh mint leaves can be found in the refrigerated produce section of most large grocery stores. I got mine at Sprouts. I haven’t tried mint extract, but it might work in a pinch. I would start with 1/8 tsp mint (not peppermint), and then add ONE drop very carefully, to taste.
    Keep pie frozen. Thaw at room temp to desired consistency to serve (about 30-45 minutes, usually). Can be served slightly frozen for a pie that taste like a frozen mixed drink, or completely thawed for a cream pie taste, depending on the texture you like. I liked both!
    To make the whipped coconut cream, I used 1 can of coconut milk, refrigerated overnight (the solid cream only), whipped with 1 Tbs maple syrup and 1 tsp vanilla. Place in a baggie to pipe on swirls.
