Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

It tasted good, but although I explicitly followed the directions---it did not firm up enough-and I am wondering why? Can milk or whipping cream be reduced a bit.

Hi there! We're so glad you enjoyed the taste! The Test Kitchen did some thinking on why it may not have thickened up like it should have. If your cornstarch is a bit on the older side you might need to add another tablespoon. Also, make sure to use whole milk. Lower fat milks may not let it thicken up as much as it should. We hope that helps!

I love pudding as a sweet, quick, no-fuss dessert. I've never had coconut pudding before, though. Yummy!
