Strawberry Vanilla Coconut Cream Pudding

By Elizabeth Plant | Nutrition , Recipes

I made these for my family a couple of weeks ago for Valentine’s Day weekend. Although strawberries are technically out of season at this time of year I had seen them in the shops and thought they would be perfect for a heart-shaped theme. They are delicious; you need confidence that they will set well when you beat the coconut. I left them for an hour after making them, covered on the countertop although you could also pop them into the fridge.
