  • 13.5 ounces full-fat canned coconut milk divided
  • 2 teaspoons gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons honey or more to taste
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt 
  • 2 cups mixed berries cut into bite-sized pieces (e.g. strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc.)


  • Shake the can of coconut milk well, and pour ¼ cup of it into a medium bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin on top and whisk briskly to get rid of the lumps. Set the bowl aside.
  • Next, heat the remaining coconut milk and honey over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the sweetened milk is steaming, but not boiling.
  • Pour the hot coconut milk into the bowl with the gelatin/coconut milk mixture, and whisk well to combine.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract and salt.
  • Place the bowl in the fridge uncovered for 30 minutes, and then cover with a silicone lid or plastic wrap until the pudding firms up, at least 2 hours. You can keep it in the fridge for up to 4 days before serving.
  • When you’re ready to serve, take the bowl of coconut pudding out of the fridge. Uncover it, and grab a hand or stand mixer.
  • Beat the pudding until it’s nice and fluffy and transforms from a stiff JELL-O-like texture to a thick, smooth pudding. It’ll take at least a minute, so be patient!
  • Divide the pudding into 4 bowls or cups, alternating layers of berries and pudding. Serve immediately and dig in!



If you refrigerate the leftover pudding, beat it again with a hand or stand mixer to get the pudding texture.
