Coconut pudding is made using tender coconut flesh/pulp, coconut water ,milk or coconut milk or coconut cream and setting agent like agar agar, china grass or gelatine is used.. I somehow do not like the taste of gelatine so I always make it with China Grass. You can use condensed milk for extra richness I love it like this.. To make it completely vegan you can use coconut milk coconut cream and skip the regular dairy milk and condensed milk.

best coconut pudding


I have used coconut cream you may add fresh cream too. 
You can add 2 cups freshly extracted thick šŸ„„coconut milk  and skip the regular milk to make it vegan. 
I personally do not like to add any essence or flavouring agents to this coconut pudding it somehow overpowers the coconut flavour ,you may add 1/2 tsp cardamom powder if you prefer.
