Although usually quite easy, puddings can sometimes be tricky. There's nothing worse than a lumpy or grainy pudding, or a pudding that simply doesn't taste like much. You won't find any of those things here. I used coconut milk as a base because it is so creamy and imparts just a hint of coconut flavor without overpowering the chocolate. I was tempted to use a little coconut extract, but was ultimately worried that it would start to taste artificial and too intensely of coconut. As it stands now, it is the perfect combination of rich chocolate flavor and coconut. I think you're going to like it.

Recipe Ingredients for Coconut Chocolate Pudding

14 ounce coconut milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
5 ounces chocolate
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup coconut flakes

Recipe Directions for Coconut Chocolate Pudding

  1. Shake the can of coconut milk as it can settle. In a medium-sized saucepan, bring half the can of coconut milk, sugar, and salt to a simmer over low heat. Don't allow it to boil fully.

  2. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the remaining coconut milk, cornstarch, cocoa powder, and espresso powder.

  3. Slowly add the cornstarch mixture to the hot pan of coconut milk, whisking vigorously. Keep whisking on low heat until the pudding almost reaches a simmer once again and begins to thicken, about 2 minutes.

  4. Remove the saucepan from heat. Whisk in the chocolate and vanilla. Keep stirring until the chocolate melts into the pudding and the mixture is smooth and silky.

  5. Pour pudding in a separate bowl and place in the refrigerator to chill thoroughly, at least 2 hours. To prevent a skin from forming, press plastic wrap up against the surface of the pudding.

  6. Serve with a dusting of toasted coconut flakes. If covered in an airtight container, pudding can be refrigerated for up to 4 days. It will firm up quite a bit once chilled; give it a good, firm stir before serving.
