Divine Coconut Milk Pudding

Valentines day is right around the corner. I repeat to any males that may happen to be reading this crazy thing of a blog (cough, hubby are you listening?), valentines day is Friday. Now I’m normally not a sappy girl but doesn’t everyone like to be romanced every once in a while? I must say my lovely husband has lots of great and charming qualities, but I don’t think I would ever describe him as romantic. Luckily I married him for the other great qualities so sometimes I let these “romantic” holidays, anniversaries and birthdays fall through the cracks.

Either way this is another one of our holidays that is food focused. Chocolate, pasta, chocolate, wine, chocolate, roses, chocolate, you get the picture. Here’s a fun fact, statistically almost half (48%) of all gifts given for Valentines day is, drumroll please, chocolate. Surprise, surprise! Apparently we are a culture driven by food. Now this doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Don’t get me wrong, I love food and I love to eat. But there is a big difference between food that feeds your body and food that robs your body. Lets start eating to feed our bodies and that means giving up, yes those Valentine’s chocolates.

But don’t stop reading now…

You really shouldn’t eat that box of chocolates but what you can do is make your own valentines treat. Lets start with something easy, divine vanilla pudding. Obviously we have been talking about chocolate so this really should have been a chocolate pudding post but this family really isn’t all that into chocolate, gasp! I know but we still love a treat and this could easily be transformed in divine chocolate pudding if you prefer.

    A bit past valentines day, my girlfriend received a flower bouquet with rose petal cupcakes and Harney & Sons tea :)

    I am looking forward to trying this out soon though, I’m sure I can manage to make enough for two, I’m sure that she will enjoy it as much as I will!

    Made this for mother’s day today. It’s cooling down now. Will let you know how it turned out! I tasted a spoonful before pouring into the jars and it really was divine. :) Thank you for the recipe!

    How thickened does it need to be when it says at the end “stir until thickened”?
    I whisked away for a good 10 minutes until it was a heavier cream consistency, poured it into the dishes, and let it set for 1.5hours in the fridge, and it was still loose.

    Unfortunately it was less of a divine pudding and more of a divine malt shake:(

      I’m sorry it didn’t turn out. What thickener did you use, arrowroot or tapioca? I feel that sometimes I have to add a bit more tapioca when thickening. The temperature can also make a difference. If it isn’t getting thick enough, turn up the heat a bit and that should help. It will only thicken slightly once cooled so make sure it is the consistency you want it in the pan.
      My final recommendation, try turning up the heat a little bit and if that isn’t working add a touch more thickener.
