Haupia (Hawaiian Coconut Pudding)

Smooth and creamy, Haupia is a Hawaiian coconut pudding that can be eaten by itself, spread between layers of cake as a light pudding-like frosting, or as a pie filling.

Hemingway Daiquiri


· 1/2 cup water

· 5 Tablespoons cornstarch (or arrowroot)

· 1 (13 ounce) can unsweetened coconut milk (full fat ONLY)

· 1/4 cup sugar (you can use more to taste if you like it sweet)


1. Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Stir until cornstarch is dissolved then set aside.

2. In a medium-sized sauce pan over medium heat, combine coconut milk and sugar.

3. Whisk constantly until mixture begins to simmer.

4. While continuing to whisk, SLOWLY pour in the water/cornstarch mixture until it thickens.

5. Reduce heat to low and continue to whisk until you have a thick, pudding-like consistency (this is important, it needs to be thickened while it is heating, or it won't set up).
