This recipe from Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa on beautiful Ko Olina in Hawaii is a favorite of coconut lovers. Offering a true taste of the islands, haupia is a traditional dessert often served at Hawaiian luaus.
- 1 (14.5-ounce) can coconut milk
- 6 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons shredded coconut, toasted
- 1 mango, peeled, cut away from pit, and diced small
- 1 small lime, washed
- 1 teaspoon orange blossom honey, heated until thin
- Combine 1/2 cup coconut milk and cornstarch in a small bowl, stirring until smooth. Combine remaining coconut milk, water, and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
- Drizzle cornstarch mixture slowly into saucepan, whisking constantly. Cook, whisking vigorously (do not let boil), until mixture is very thick and no longer tastes floury, 4 to 6 minutes.
- Pour into 4 (1/2-cup-capacity) ramekins; cover with plastic wrap, pressing plastic wrap directly onto surface of coconut milk mixture.
- Refrigerate 2 hours. Garnish with toasted coconut.
For mango compote:
- Place mango in a medium bowl. Zest lime into bowl; stir to combine.
- Stir in honey. Serve with haupia.
Cook’s note: Mangoes have a hard, oblong pit that runs through the narrow center. To easily cube the fruit, cut each round “cheek” away from pit, score with a paring knife, and cut fruit away from peel.
