Rich Coconut Cream Pie Pudding

Rich “Coconut Cream Pie” Pudding

Coconut cream pie is one of my favorite desserts, but I don’t always want the crust. This pudding version of the pie provides all the comfort, rich flavor and chewiness of the coconut flakes without the carbs from the pie crust.

Sometimes you just need something rich and luscious to satisfy that urge for comfort food. This homemade coconut pudding is made from scratch with real food ingredients. I like to call it a healthier kind of dessert. After all, coconut does have nutritional health benefits.

RICH REAL FOOD INGREDIENTS

Rich Coconut Cream Pie Pudding

Begin by adding one cup of coconut milk, one cup of whole milk, an egg yolk, some organic cane sugar and pure vanilla to a medium saucepan. Whisk the ingredients together thoroughly until the egg yolk is incorporated.

Then cook the milk mixture over medium low heat, whisking occasionally until it just begins to boil.

NOTE: Organic Cane Sugar is much less processed than granulated sugar and retains a lot of its nutrients. Being organic, damaging pesticides are also eliminated. I try to use organic products whenever possible.

A half a cup of the whole milk was reserved to mix with some cornstarch, so stir the cornstarch and milk together in a small bowl until the cornstarch has completely dissolved.

While waiting for the milk mixture to heat put half of the coconut flakes into a small sauté pan and toast on medium low heat until lightly browned.

Once the milk mixture begins to boil, remove the pan from the heat and slowly pour in the cornstarch and whisk until it is combined. Return to the heat and cook another couple of minutes until the pudding thickens.

Next, add the remaining untoasted coconut flakes to the pudding and whisk until combined, then remove from the heat.

Now pour the pudding into small bowls and let it cool, either in the refrigerator or on your counter.

Once cooled, top the pudding with homemade whipped cream, try my Luscious Homemade Whipped Cream recipe, and then sprinkle some of the toasted coconut over the whipped cream. Serve and Enjoy!
