Tembleque – Coconut Pudding

This is one of my very favorite desserts. Rich and creamy yummy coconutty goodness! Enjoy!



  • 4 cups coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • garnish: ground cinnamon, cinnamon sticks, or toasted coconut flakes


  1. In a sauce pan mix together the cornstarch, sugar and salt.
  2. Whisk in the coconut milk and simmer over low to medium heat.
  3. Stir constantly until the mixture is thoroughly cooked and thickens.
  4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and pour pudding into individual dessert cups.
  5. Allow the pudding to chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Garnish with sprinkled ground cinnamon, a cinnamon stick, and/or toasted coconut flakes.
