The Recipe:

1. Create your coconut custard by mixing sugar and about half of the coconut milk in a small saucepan.

2. Place over medium heat and stir frequently until the sugar is dissolved.

3. Add in the rest of the coconut milk and cornstarch together. Keep stirring. The lumps will eventually go away.

5. Let your custard mixture cool while you make the crust.

6. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

7. Combine all the crust ingredients in a blender or food processor.

8. Spread mixture onto a baking sheet or pie pan and bake for about 10 minutes.

9. Let your crust cool.

10. Pour or spread your custard mixture onto the crust. Top it with your favorite fruits and enjoy!
