Amazing recipe! So easy and so rich and tasty! I didn't change a thing. I love the texture of this unique dessert--part custard, part gelatin! A definite addition to any home's rotation of delicious dishes!

This is fantastic, but next time I might add a little less cornstarch. I didn't unmold it though, we just ate it in the original bowls.

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!
