Pudin di Coco (Coconut Pudding)

Beth M.


After enjoying a special dinner at a fine hill-top restaurant, overlooking the water in Willemstedt, we had the lightest gelatin dessert, with an unusual orange liquer drizzled over it. Today I want to recreate this recipe, and have most of the ingredients. Curacao liquer is the topping, and it comes in blue, orange, or uncolored clear, and I was only able to get the blue. This has a light orange taste, combined with the pudding it is light as a feather!
