Perfect for...Great dessert for coconut lovers… coconut milk, coconut water, coconut meat! What more can you ask for?

Tips to avoid disasters….

  • Make sure the ramekins are lightly greased with any mild flavored oil, preferably coconut oil. This helps to easily unmold the pudding or you can eat it directly from the bowl!
  • Don’t boil coconut milk. This would make the mixture curdle by separating the oil from the fat. Add the coconut milk after removing from the heat.
  • Praline should be added just before serving. This helps to maintain the crunchy texture to the praline.

Coconut pudding

So what is coconut meat?  Coconut meat is the white part of the inside of a fresh coconut. I have used the tender coconut meat since it is more juicy and succulent. I roughly chopped in into pieces to give the pudding a slight texture.

what are pralines? Praline is basically caramelized sugar mixed with any kind of nuts. You can find your recipe on how to make praline here. Try it at home and let me know what you think. Praline goes well as a topping  for ice creams, yogurt or any kind of dessert for that matter.

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

A melt in your mouth, light, creamy dessert for a warm summer day


  • ½ cup Tender coconut water
  • ½ cup Coconut milk
  • 2 ½ cup milk
  • 150 g sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 teaspoon gelatin
  • 85 g coconut meat (optional)



Boil milk, sugar and condensed milk.


When the milk starts to boil, turn off heat and stir in the coconut meat and coconut milk.


In another bowl, double boil the coconut water with the gelatin until the gelatin melts.


Now pour the coconut water into the milk and stir thoroughly.


Keep aside. Grease the ramekins lightly with any mild flavored oil.


Pour the pudding into ramekins and chill till completely set (at least 4 hours).


Before serving, dip the ramekins in warm water and then invert it. The warm water helps soften the pudding and the pudding slides out easily.


Garnish with praline or serve the pudding with fresh seasonal fruits.


Add pralines just before serving for fresh look and crunchy texture.
