seeds of 2 vanilla pods, or 1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2cupof toasted coconut flakes
Mix milk salt and sugar. Mix in cornstarch. Add vanilla seeds or cocoa powder, depending on which you're making. Sieve to eliminate undissolved solids.
Pour into a pot and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly to prevent it from sticking. Once it breaks a boil, lower heat and continue stirring until it has thickened to the same consistency as condensed milk. Remove from heat.
Pour into another bowl and stir until it has cooled to room temperature. Pour into small serving cups. Sprinkle with toasted coconut and chill.
Choose whether to make the chocolate or the vanilla versions and prepare accordingly. Or you can make in two halves and serve in layers after cooling (see photo).Use almond milk for a vegan version.
