Coconut Pudding with Papaya and Kiwi


These tropical parfaits are made by layering coconut pudding with kiwi and papaya. To boost the flavor of the pudding, you steep the shredded coconut in boiled milk for half an hour, then strain the coconut and use the milk to make the custard base with sugar, cornstarch, egg, and vanilla extract. Be sure to whisk constantly while cooking the custard to keep lumps from forming and to ensure that it cooks evenly.
