  • 1 can coconut milk
  • cup corn starch
  • cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • ½ cup fresh fruit


  • In a saucepan, mix together the corn starch, coconut milk, and powdered sugar. Be sure to whisk well to ensure that there are no lumps or clumps.
  • Heat the pan to medium heat and continue to whisk until it starts to thicken. This should take about 5 minutes. Be sure to prevent it from burning. Stir in the vanilla as it starts to thicken. Taste it as it starts to thicken to ensure it's sweetened to your liking. If you want to add more sugar, do it now!
  • Once it's thickened, remove from heat and pour into serving dishes or one large bowl. You want one to cover the tops or place the lids on snd place in the fridge to allow it to set. This should take about 30 minutes if in small containers, or a bit longer if it's in a single dish. I like to use these. Ramekins are perfect for this!
  • Once set, top with fruit and enjoy! If you put it in a single container, you'll want to pulse it with an immersion blender or scoop it into a food processor or blender and blend it up so it can be scooped.
  • Store leftovers for up to 5 days in the fridge in an air tight container.
