Coconut & white chocolate Pudding

SAMSUNG CSC

There are some recipes/desserts that we eat on the reg (I just felt like a 14 year old when I said “reg”, but I’m going to leave it right here, isss okayy :p). So where was I??

Yeah, so there are some desserts that we have been eating since childhood, but more often than not, they are either instant mixes or store bought, things like pudding for example. Store bought puddings might taste alright, but it has yucky ingredients and why would you give children (or anybody) yucky ingredients to eat? Especially, when making pudding at home is so simple… (and it tastes a lot better)

So today, I’m going to help you make white chocolate pudding! It’s simple, you probably have all the ingredients at hand and you can skip the white chocolate/coconut and make it vanilla pudding 🙂

Ingredients

  • 2 tblsp water
  • 1 tblsp corn starch/ corn flour
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • ½ tblsp sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ¼ tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup melted white chocolate
  • 2 tblsp shredded coconut
  • 15-20 almond for topping (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place a sieve over a bowl. Set aside
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of water to the cornflour and mix until you see no lumps. Set aside
  3. Next, put the milk and sugar in a saucepan and bring to boil over medium heat. Whisk for 30 seconds
  4. Add the cornflour mixture and stir constantly for 30 seconds
  5. Next, add the egg yolks, keep stirring until it is fully combined (around 10-15 seconds)
  6. Remove from heat and pour it through the sieve (this will get rid of any lumps formed by the egg)
  7. Add the vanilla, white chocolate, shredded coconut and return to heat, stirring constantly until the mixture starts to thicken (this takes about 3-5 minutes)*
  8. Remove from heat, top with almonds and cover in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until ready to serve *Note: the pudding thickens on cooling, but if you want it to be thicker, add another table spoon of corn starch mixed with water and stir over medium heat
