Ingredients and Substitutes
Making an easy dessert with coconut milk is effortless, whips up quickly, and is customizable!
If you are wondering if you can use coconut milk to make pudding, the answer is YES! Full fat coconut milk makes a luscious dessert! The creamy pudding turns out super silky and velvety!
The beauty of this easy vegan coconut milk dessert is that it is dairy-free and egg free - no egg whites or egg yolks. A cornstarch mixture is not even required!
All the ingredients can be purchased at your local grocery stores or online.
- Full-Fat Coconut Milk
- Drinking Water (previously boiled or filtered water)
- Agar Agar Powder (Vegan) or Gelatin Powder
- Monk Fruit Sugar, Maple Syrup, Cane Sugar, or Brown Sugar
- Fresh Fruit
- Tapioca Pearls
- Coconut Flakes
Vegan coconut pudding vs Chia Pudding
Chinese coconut milk pudding is very different compared to chia pudding.
Chia pudding is gloppy, while quick coconut milk dessert resembles a smooth coconut jelly.
If you are looking for a quick sweet treat, this vegan Osmanthus Flower Jelly made with Agar Agar powder is a healthy snack!
How To Make Chinese Coconut Milk Pudding
Add cold water to a large bowl, followed by agar agar powder for a vegan pudding. Gelatin powder is a good substitute but is not a plant-based ingredient. Mix well with a whisk to dissolve.
Add a can of full-fat coconut milk to the liquid mixture. To create a creamy texture, you can also mix a can of coconut cream with a can of unsweetened light coconut milk. Mix well with a whisk to combine.
Pour the eggless coconut pudding mixture into a small saucepan and heat over low heat. Combine and melt the Agar Agar powder. Do not bring it to a boil. As long as the thickening agent fully dissolves.
Lightly grease the mould with vegetable oil or line it with plastic wrap. This will help you remove the pudding from the mould later.
Pour the liquid into a mould or pyrex glass container. Let the liquid cool down.
Place the whole thing in the refrigerator to set it overnight.
Serve and enjoy this delicious vegan coconut dessert s cold. There is no added sugar. In fact, this vegan dessert does not contain much sugar at all!
Consider serving this quick coconut cream dessert with favorite fruits, chocolate shavings or toasted coconut flakes.
Two-Layered Coconut Milk Pudding
If you plan to make a two-layered coconut milk pudding with different flavours, fill half the container with a coconut milk base. Set in the refrigerator overnight.
The next day, make another batch of coconut milk pudding and add your favourite flavours, such as cocoa powder or fresh mango fruit puree.
Pour over previously chilled coconut pudding. Let cool to room temperature.
Place the whole thing in the refrigerator to set it overnight.
Canned coconut milk recipes are versatile and customizable with your favourite flavours.
- Silky mango pudding desserts with coconut milk
- Layered coconut milk pudding with coconut water or cocoa powder
- Layered coconut milk pudding with MILO malted chocolate
- Drizzle evaporated milk for extra creaminess (not vegan)
Another delicious recipe made with coconut milk is this delicious Alkaline Toasted Coconut and Lemon Salad Dressing!
How Long Does Coconut Pudding Last?
Next time before you reach for that sugary drink or that box of store-bought chocolate chip cookies, consider this low-carb, dairy-free dessert instead.
For good measure, I highly recommend making a big batch of easy pudding to store in the refrigerator in an airtight storage container. The thick coconut milk jelly pudding will last a couple of days chilled.

You mentioned in the instructions that "To create a creamy texture, you can also mix a can of coconut cream with a can of unsweetened light coconut milk."
However, you did not mention how much more of the other ingredients (water, gelatin powder, sugar) I will need to increase as well in order to achieve the same consistency as opposed to just using 400ml of Coconut Milk alone.
Hello, you can mix coconut cream with a can of unsweetened light coconut milk of equal portion to substitute for 400 ml Full-Fat Coconut milk. So 200ml coconut cream + 200ml unsweetened light coconut milk to replace 400ml of Full-Fat Coconut milk. Hope this helps clarifies your question. thanks
Great!! Thanks so much for the quick response. I am going to make it this very minute. As soon as my wife saw me take out the ingredients, she’s all hyped up now.
