Had a couple glasseís of cab with my dinner. Remembered that I made some Huapia earlier so I had some for dessert. If youíre a coconut phreak like I am give it a try. Downside is youíll be scrambling through your bar stuff lookin to fix a Mai Tai asap!
Hereís the recipe I used, (polynesians used Hawaiian arrowroot instead of cornstarch-good luck finding that). Looks like a white/milky jello when done.


Huapia

5 tablespoons cornstarch

1/4 cup white sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt

2 cups coconut milk



Directions
Place the cornstarch, sugar, and salt into a saucepan; stir in 1/4 of the coconut milk to make a smooth paste. Stir in the remaining coconut milk, and bring to a simmer over low heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until thickened so that it coats the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes. Pour into a 9x13 inch baking dish; refrigerate until cold. I add a tad toasted shredded coconut after it cools. Told you I was a phreak! Easy peazy!
Donít know why those #ís and stuff are coming with the ingredients-just ignore them, iím going for nudder Mai Ta.
Cheers

I bought a package mix at Ralph's but never got around to making it



Looks like McDonalds in Hawaii was doing Haupia Turnovers for a limited time

Thank you for posting the recipe. I use the Noh brand coconut pudding mix which I use as a hot topping on ice cream or I let it cool for pudding. Boil water and add the packet, the stuff is great if you love coconut!

David,
Ralph's sells it on their ethnic food aisle. It's usually less than .99 a packet. Most of the Japanese markets have a Hawaiian food section and you can usually find it there too.
When you're in Huntington Beach check out Hula Girls Shave Ice/Dough Dough's on 16552 Bolsa Chica. Not only do they have Dole Whip, but they also sell made to order malasadas, which are Hawaiian donuts without the hole. Coconut is one of the fillings you can get. At Hula Girls you can get shave ice on top of coconut macadamia nut ice cream.
Yum!
