Directions To Make Coconut Pudding
Heat the 1 cup coconut milk, coconut sugar,vanilla in a saucepan on the stove over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer, and then turn down the heat.
Meanwhile, mix the remaining 1/2 cup of coconut milk with the cornstarch in a small bowl until well combined.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cornstarch mixture while stirring constantly. Once well combined, put it back on the stove, turn the heat to medium and cook until thickened like pudding, whisking constantly.
Continue to cook on medium-low heat for approximately six to eight minutes, until the coconut pudding starts to thicken.
When it reaches your desired consistency, pour the coconut pudding into small cups.
Let it cool until room temperature and then refrigerate it for few hours.
