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.

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.

      4. Serve in individual dishes or store it the fridge until ready to fill your cake.
