  • With a sharp knife, cut the corn off of the corn cobs.
  • In a high powered blender or food processor, blend the corn with the coconut milk and water until well blended and pureed.
  • Pass through a strainer, extracting all of the liquid. Discard the solids.
  • Transfer to a saucepan.
  • Take a few tablespoon of the corn puree and place in a small bowl. Add cornstarch and mix well until cornstarch is well mixed in with no lumps.
  • Add to the saucepan.
  • Add vanilla, salt, sugar and cinnamon.
  • Heat until sugar is dissolved.
  • Simmer on medium heat for 15 minutes, stirring frequently until pudding is thickened.
  • Chill in refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
  • To serve, garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.


  • The longer you chill it, the firmer the pudding will become. For a thick pudding, let it chill overnight.
  • After chilling, you can also reheat in the microwave for 1 minute to enjoy it warm.
  • This pudding can be enjoyed chilled or warm.
  • Use canned coconut milk. Carton coconut milk is thinner and will not yield the same result.
  • You can also use brown sugar, coconut sugar or palm sugar.
