Tembleque (Coconut Pudding)

Tembleque is a coconut dessert pudding from Puerto Rico.  Tembleque means jiggly or shake in Spanish. Not only is this dessert jiggly and sweet, it basically melts in your mouth.  If you like coconut like me and my entire family, you will love this dessert.

I divided the Tembleque pudding into two ramekins, but you can make just one big one.  Once you take it out of the ramekin and is ready to eat sprinkle a little bit of cinnamon on top. 

The Tembleque turned out really good.  The texture is perfect..jiggly and sweet. 


2-13.5 ounce cans of coconut milk
2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup water
1/2 cup corn starch
ground cinnamon for dusting

In a large sauce pan on medium heat add the coconut milk, sugar, and salt.  Stirring occasionally until it boils, about 5 minutes.  In a bowl mix together the water and cornstarch. Pour into the coconut mixture slowly, stirring as you pour.  Continue stirring for about 3-5 minutes, until it becomes thick.

Pour the mixture thru a colander.  Transfer into a deep dish or individual ramekins. Smooth out the top, and let sit at room temperature until it cools.  Refrigerate for about 4 hours, or until it completely sets.  When ready to eat carefully separate the Tembleque from the mold using a knife, sprinkle some cinnamon on top and enjoy!!
