This has become my signature pie, making it about once a month and never any to bring home! Sometimes cheesecake pudding is hard to find, so I stock up when I find it. FYI - The coconut milk is by the margarita mix. If you don't use all of it, mix it with poppy seed dressing for a GREAT summer fruit salad dressing.
