Coconut Nutmeg Pudding


Silky, creamy, elegant and simple, all rolled into one pudding. And no sweetener. Really, it doesn't need any, it's perfect as is. There's a slight sweetness to the pudding, the coconut flavor shines through, the toasted coconut flakes supply a bit of crunch and you'll taste a little touch of nutmeg. It's a little gem of a recipe.


Coconut Nutmeg Pudding
From :pastry affair




Ingredients:
13.5 ounces (1 can) coconut milk 
1/2 cup almond milk (or regular milk) 
3 tablespoons cornstarch, sieved
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

Toasted coconut flakes for topping

Method:

Bring the coconut milk and almond milk to a simmer and whisk in the cornstarch and nutmeg, stirring constantly until the milk thickens. Doesn't take long. Remove from heat and strain the pudding through a fine mesh strainer. Stir in the vanilla extract.

This recipe made enough for three of the dessert dishes in the photo. Divide the warm pudding and sprinkle on toasted coconut. You can serve warm, or chill, covered, for a few hours in the fridge.

  8. I can't wait to try this! What are the odds the Knight can find coconut milk and almond milk all by himself?

  13. Hi Barbara!
    I'm delighted to see this recipe. My daughter has been trying all kinds of different recipes for my grandson and has recently discovered he likes coconut milk. I have a feeling he would like this pudding. I will be sending her the recipe. Thanks for sharing, Barbara...Maybe she'll make it for me too when I visit in May:)
