  • 13.66 Oz. Can unsweetened coconut milk already has guar gum
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • 1/8 T Salt
  • 2 TB Cornstarch
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 1 TB Butter


  • In a double boiler add sugar and egg yolk and mix to combine. If you don’t have a double boiler, you can float a metal bowl over a pot of water (medium heat). Stir repeatedly in order to keep the eggs from getting too hot. If that happens, you could end up with lumpy scrambled eggs. Cook 5 – 8 minutes.
  • Add coconut milk and corn starch. Cook, stirring, for 8 minutes.
  • Add butter and salt, cook for 4 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let sit to cool for about an hour.
  • To cool, put into fridge for at least 4 hours, or overnight.


Use the full fat coconut milk, the lowfat version never really comes together.
