  • 1 3/4  cups 
    unsweetened coconut, shredded and divided
  • 3/4  cup 
    granular sugar substitute (sucralose), divided
  • 1   
    large egg white
  • 14   ounces 
    canned coconut milk
  • 1/2  cup 
    heavy cream
  • 6   
    large eggs
  • 1

  • 1   teaspoon 
    vanilla extract
  • 1   teaspoon 
    coconut extract

    salt
Directions
1.
For crust: Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grind almonds into flour. Mix almond flour, 1 cup coconut, 1/4 cup sugar substitute, and egg white. If coconut mixture is too dry to hold together add 1 to 2 teaspoons of water, a few drops at a time, until mixture holds its shape when pinched together.
2.
Press onto bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate to form a crust. Bake 15 minutes until lightly golden. Remove from oven; set aside. Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees F.
3.
For filling: Scald coconut milk and cream in a medium saucepan; set aside to cool slightly. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed (or with a wire whisk), beat eggs and egg yolk until frothy. Beat in 1/2 cup sugar substitute, salt, vanilla and coconut extract. Slowly beat in coconut milk mixture.
4.
Fold in 3/4 cup shredded coconut and stir gently. Pour filling into prepared crust. Bake 5 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees F and bake 15 minutes more or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack to room temperature, then transfer to refrigerator to chill completely.
