I love a good pudding. It’s like the perfect ending to a delicious dinner. I have made so many varieties of pudding (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, lemon and passion fruit), but this coconut one has now become a favorite on the list. This is a must try recipe. You will not be disappointed, and even the kids will want seconds.
1 cup sugar
5 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon table salt
1 3/4 cups milk
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 (13.5-oz.) can unsweetened coconut milk
1/4 cup butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
Raspberries, garish optional
Whisk together first 3 ingredients in a large heavy saucepan; whisk in milk and next 2 ingredients. Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Boil 1 minute, whisking constantly. Remove from heat. Place in little ramekins and in the refrigerator for 90 min or overnight. Top with raspberries and chocolate.
