Homemade Coconut Pudding Mix

Amy Alusa


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!

How to Make Homemade Coconut Pudding Mix


    Measure all ingredients into a large bowl, blend well until thoroughly combined.

    Measure into 12 separate vacuum seal/ Zip-Loc bags, OR small jars for gifting; placing 1 cup of mix into each bag or container. Seal & Store. If used for a gift, don't forget to attach instructions for making the mix into pudding!
    Combine all in med. saucepan, Stir constantly over low heat until thickened.
  3. *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!
