Creamy Chocolate Coconut Pudding

I’m in love with this classic chocolate pudding.

You can make it quickly and easily using the meat from a Thai young coconut! (The type of coconut that has a shaved white shell in grocery stores, not the type with a brown shell.)

If you’re intimidated of opening a young Thai coconut yourself, you can always ask someone in the produce department of your local store to open it for you. Or, an even easier option is to buy the coconut meat from your freezer section. Several brands are available carrying just the meat, so all the work is done for you.

I hope you’ll enjoy this pudding as much as my family does.

Oh, I am so going to make the chocolate one tonight….What kind of cacao do you use?

Robyn

Holy yumminess!! I could honestly eat this every day and probably will for days to come,,,day 3 tomorrow with a fresh batch of chocolate. Did vanilla first, and doubled it. Doubled the chocolate too…in love!

Araya

I’ve made this yummy pudding twice now, and I love it. I prefer bolder flavors, so I doubled, and even tripled the amount of cocoa for a more bittersweet taste, and I added about a teaspoon of cinnamon too.
Thanks.

    I meant to give this recipe 5 stars. Don’t know what happened. I’m making it again right now.

Sophie

Can I use sugar instead of maple syrup?

    Jenna

    Yes, you can! You can use any sweetener. I use date paste to keep it healthy, but if sugar is what you have on hand, go for it!

Eileen

I’ve made this a few times exactly as described but using organic cacao powder instead of cocoa … Absolutely delicious!

Easy, delicious, and hit the spot for my chocolate craving! This recipe makes the effort of getting the meat out of a fresh coconut worth it. I’m glad I could give my family tasty pudding without artifical ingredients. I made half batch of vanill and half of chocolate, and I preferred the chocolate. It was good to make both so that if someone didn’t want such a strong chocolate taste, it could be diluted with vanilla.
