Ingredients

Coconut milk: I’ve used store-bought full fat coconut milk can.

Sweetener: Regular sugar has been used in this recipe. You may use healthy alternatives such as maple syrup, agave nectar, brown sugar, coconut sugar.

Flavour Enhancer: Vanilla extract is an ideal option to enhance the flavour of custard. You could use vanilla pod or pure extract.

Powdered Starch: I’ve used corn flour that acts as a thickening agent and aids in smooth and silky soft texture to the custard sauce. You could use other powdered starch such as arrowroot.
