Is coconut pie as good as it sounds?

Pie is not a big part of norwegian culture. So I am not that familiar with it. But I do think it would be a nice thing to make for easter.

So I had this chocolate bar with coconut cream inside it the other day. And it hit me, imagine a pie like that. WIth that delicious fatty and slightly stiff sweet coconut cream in it.

But is it really like that? I´ve found some recipes for it, that uses shredded dried coconut to add taste to a generic custard. I was surprised none of the recipes uses coconut milk, instead of cream?

Anyway, is that filling really as delicious as it sounds? Like a thick cream. Or is it more grainy and dry?

I´m thinking a chocolate pie crust with coconut filling would be amazingly good. And something must be on top too, but what is the third ingredient? A berry perhaps..?
