5-Ingredient Easter Cream Pie Recipe Is Ready in About 20 Minutes

I love surprising my family with fun treats for each season, but I don't always have a lot of time to spend making elaborate desserts. Who does? This surprisingly healthier Easter pie recipe takes just a few minutes to assemble. It looks adorable on your Easter table, too!

The pie is made with your favorite pie crust. Bake it first before preparing the filling. The creamy filling is made with Greek yogurt and lime gelatin or pistachio pudding. Spread the green filling into the baked pie crust and then arrange the tinted coconut around the edges and in the center of the pie. Top the Easter pie with jelly beans. Be sure to allow time for the pie to chill in the fridge.

To tint the shredded coconut green, put it into a bowl or plastic zipper bag and add a few drops of green food coloring. Stir or squish around until all the coconut turns green. 

Serve this easy pie for dessert with your other favorite Easter treats.
