Homemade Coconut Pudding Mix

The only negative about this one is that you have to add the coconut when you make it, and not put it originally in the mix. However, I think it will still be a big time saver, and that if you put the coconut in the mix, it will get dried out and flavorless! So, I hope you enjoy this mix as much as we do! I find vanilla beans a little too pricey...and I can get a little more mileage out of powdered vanilla that I buy at a savings on amazon.com. Enjoy!

*NOTE: It is necessary to start with cool water as opposed to warm or hot, as cornstarch does not dissolve as easily in warm or hot water as it does in cold. So...use cool. It takes a little longer, but you will be happier with the final product in the long run! After everything is dissolved, you can turn up the heat a bit if you want to; just keep stirring to prevent scorching or burning!
