While I have found many coconut cream pies that provide whip cream as a topping, I prefer the original idea of using merangue as a topping. you can make the merangue as stiff as you like, while I personally like largee peaks, not everyone does, so when I mae this for the diner I only put a small layer of merangue on the top. I find that the lime keeps this pie from being too sweet, and the coconut cream makes for an extra creamy pie.
