Coconut Pudding

Smooth and Creamy Coconut Pudding. The perfect dessert. from #DietersDownfallTriple Coconut Cake – Day Two – Coconut Pudding

I love a good, homemade pudding. Taking the time to cook pudding on the stove top is just so soothing and the results are just so much better than the 5 minute mixes.

The stove top method is also great because you know exactly what is going into your pudding. For this recipe, it’s butter, sugar, eggs, and coconut milk. Nothing fake.

Coconut Pudding. Enjoy it as is or spread it between a layered cake. from #DietersDownfallThis could be such an easy and festive treat for the holidays. Add some Sugared Citrus Peel or some Crystallized Cranberries. Mix it with some Lemon Curd for a little lemon coconut flair. Fill some cupcakes or spread it on some sweet bread.

Coconut Pudding

This simple, homemade coconut pudding is great on its own, and it also makes an amazing addition to our homemade coconut cake.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk, in the can not the carton
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste


    1. Beat the butter and sugar in your stand mixer until light and fluffy. Add in one egg at a time, then add in coconut milk until thoroughly mixed.
    2. Pour this into a heavy bottom pot and mix in the vanilla bean paste. Stir mixture frequently until temperature reaches approximately 170 degrees and the mixture begins to thicken. It will coat your wooden spoon and leave an edge when you drag your finger though it.
    3. Transfer the pudding to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap to prevent a skin, and let cool in fridge.
    4. Serve in individual dishes or store it the fridge until ready to fill your cake.

This looks so yummy. I love homemade puddings. I make a coconut pudding sometimes and my niece calls it coconut cream pie guts.

Well... I guess she's not completely wrong.... A bit on the vulgar side, but I'd still eat it :)
