This recipe is very simple and fast.
Simply bring the milk, sugar, cornstarch, and eggs to a boil on the stovetop, whisking until it is thick and bubbly. Then remove from heat and stir in the remaining ingredients.
Cover the pudding with plastic wrap (to prevent a film from forming on the top) and refrigerate at least one hour before serving. Too easy, right?
Tips for Making Coconut Pudding
- Alter the flavor to your own tastes by adjusting the amount of vanilla and coconut extracts in this recipe.
- Don’t forget to cover the pudding with plastic wrap before refrigerating, omitting this step will cause the pudding to form a filmy layer over the top (not the most appealing!)
- Serve on it’s own or topped with whipped cream and toasted shredded coconut, it’s delicious either way!
