If you love the tropical flavors of a piña colada, then this pie will be your new favorite dessert. Pineapple, coconut and rum extract give this sweet slice of pie a deliciously tropical flavor, and since it's no-bake, you won't have to heat up the kitchen. I used rum extract in this version so that everyone could enjoy this pie. However, you can certainly add in a shot or two of the real stuff if you desire.

4Using a pastry bag with a star tip, pipe the remaining whipped cream on top of the pie (or spread the remaining whipped cream over the top), and sprinkle with toasted coconut.
