Chocolate Coconut Custard

Serves 4

I love the flavour that coconut brings to food, so the recent popularity of coconut derived products like coconut oil and coconut sugar and coconut milks and creams being increasingly used in sweet dishes is really working for me.  Coconut is a perfect partner to chocolate and this yummy custard can be whipped up in no time when your sweet tooth comes calling.  It reminds me of Tenina Holder's famous Chocolate Coconut Cream Pie, which is my go to decadent desert when I really want to spoil family and friends (and myself).  But this low fat and relatively low sugar desert can be had any day of the week!

What's in it?

250mL skim milk
250mL light coconut milk
60g coconut sugar
20g cornflour
2 eggs
2tbs good quality unsweetened cocoa
1tsp vanilla bean paste
Shredded coconut, for garnish

How do I make it?

Place all ingredients in mixing bow and cook 7mins / 90°C / speed 4. Serve hot or cold, garrnished with a little shredded coconut if desired.

5 ProPoints per serve.
