Reviews for Puerto Rican Coconut Pudding
"Absolutely delicious! My husband liked it so well, I made it twice in one day! I have never made pudding from scratch before but it couldn't be simpler, especially with only five ingredients. This pudding is thicker than the pudding you make using a store-bought mix, perhaps because of the thicker consistency of the coconut milk. The next time I make it, I think I will add some toasted flaked coconut on top. It would make a very elegant end to a special meal but is simple enough for any weeknight dinner. As an added bonus, our kitchen smells fabulous!"
"Very good. My mother grew up in Puerto Rico and loves this."
