Waooooo Amazing and so simple to make, I used MAGGI Coconut Milk Powder, it's just gave a simple yogurt a different dimension.
it's so Amazingly tasty and you want to go for more and more and more.

Made this for a friend's birthday bash and put in little cups, worked a treat. I could not get powdered coconut cream (another food item 'missing' in Brisbane!!) but used the powdered coconut milk instead, I don't thing it was as tasty but still got wonderful feedback, would make again as so easy.

You can get sachets of creamed coconut from Waitrose. Made by "Barts".Comes in 4 handy servings.

Please note that kiwis are flightless birds, and they are a protected species. Using kiwis in your recipe is likely to get you into trouble.

*Kiwifruit* is what you should be listing as your ingredient! :-)

Very delicious, simple and pretty! I accidentally bought the full fat greek yoghurt though so it was extra creamy... ah well once won't hurt! Also, it may not look like enough but it's definitely well divided for 4. I was only making for 3 and it was a bit too much, even though they look like small portions.

Also I might use tinned coconut next time because hacking away at the block of creamed coconut (couldn't find sachets) was not efficient!

Simple and delicious, I found I didn't need all the sugar and used a mango and nectarine which needed using up. You'd never guess the yogurt is 0% fat!

Delicious. So easy to make. I used tinned coconut cream instead. Toasted desiccated coconut sprinkled on the top adds a great crunch.

Very easy to make and great served after a fairly spicy meal. Have used various tropical fruits to top the puddding. Probably made it about 6 times, never fails.

Really nice finish to a spicy meal. I always sprinkle toasted coconut on top of the fruit before serving.

Great little desert! Really quick. I've made it a few times now as I cut the recipe out of the magazine. That states a "few drops of vanilla essence"

pennycrayon83's picture

the recipe says stir in the vanilla but vanilla is missing from the ingredients - how much should i use??
