Hmmm, yumm! This was really good. I wasn't patient enough to wait for it to set, so I ate it when it was still warm.

I added a pinch of salt and used agave instead of dry sugar. In the end, I stirred in a spoonful of pomegranate jelly.


If you're a coconut fan, you should try this. I've never heard of haupia or a coconut pudding... I had a can of coconut milk around and wanted to do something with it and this was different, easy, and quick (except for the chilling). Tastes good-- I ate it as pudding with some cinnamon sprinkled on top, and as a dip with a banana. Thanks for posting!
