13.5 cans coconut milk (canned); divided
teaspoon vanilla extract
teaspoon coconut extract
cup sweetened coconut flakes

Remove from heat; add vanilla and coconut extracts, and remaining coconut milk. Stir well and pour into a pie plate. Cover and poke some holes in plastic wrap to let steam escape. Refrigerate until cooled. While cooling, toast coconut flakes in a dry skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until golden. Transfer to a plate to cool.
