DIABETIC PINEAPPLE COCONUT TART

This tart is similar to a coconut cream pie with pineapple added to it. A member of my family was recently diagnosed as a diabetic. He was missing his sweets so badly that I created this tart just for him. He loved it, and when he had his second slice, the next day after lunch (he NEVER eats dessert at lunch,) he said, "D@mn, that's a good pie! I believe it's even better on the second day." Made my heart sooooo happy!
