Let's Make Puerto Rican Food: Tembleque Tutorial


Coconutty goodness!

So after a yummy Dinner....

Desert should come rather easy!

(OK so I spelled it both ways and I FORGOT how to spell it! lol Ever obsess look at a word too long and it starts to look completely foreign? LOL well thats what happened here!)

It's time to gather the ingredients!

Ingredients needed (recipe borrowed from food.com):

  • 7 ounces cream of coconut (approx 1/2 can)
  • 2 1/2 cups milk ( I replaced this with coconut milk, and in the future it would be wise to do half and half)
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch (This may be too much, so I adjusted it for less cornstarch so it would be more TREMBLY)
  • 4 tablespoons sugar (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

GROUND cinnamon and Shredded Coconut to top!
Mix all the ingredients in a medium to large saucepan except for toppings and stir VERY WELL.

This is what it should look like after mixing well, ignore the slotted spoon, a whisk works best!

Turn on stove to medium to high heat and NEVER. STOP. STIRRING.

It will start to thicken, it will also bubble but if you are stirring constantly you may never notice.
Continue for ONLY another ONE minute!

This is where you want it, nice and goopy! :) 

Fill your cups!

Sprinkle your favorite topping!

Let it cool a bit, then wrap in cling wrap and refrigerate overnight!

Or save a nice warm one for yourself, and sleep like a baby!

 let me know how your versions turn out or if you have any recommendations to the recipes! I would love to try them out!
