A Brew-tiful Pudding.

How cute are these puddings, right?

This is The First Mess' vegan coffee pudding. The recipe calls for espresso or very strong coffee. I don't have an espresso machine but I absolutely adore moka pots and they make some mean coffee.  It is definitely my choice of brewing method, that is, if I have the time. This time we used coffee from our local coffee shop, Black Canary

The pudding turned out pretty well: a strong coffee aroma with a hint of coconut. The sweetness was just right. It was pretty easy to make too! We definitely will experiment and explore different flavours using the same techniques. Any suggestions?

One failure we had was the can of coconut cream, which was not-so creamy. The coconut milk we bought couldn't settle into a thick layer of cream as mentioned in the recipe. What we ended up with was just a slightly thicker layer of coconut milk/cream. We hoped to the tropical gods that it will thicken up as the kitchen-aid did it's hard work but it was to no avail. If you know which brand of coconut milk is high in fat content that will thicken up - please let us know!

Enjoy!
