I love tropical flavors (especially passion fruit and coconut) and I've been courting this particular pie for a while. Haupia has a very pleasant flavor. Haupia is very popular in Hawaii (pudding made with coconut milk or coconut cream and cornstarch) and is well used in many desserts.
- 1 (9 inch) frozen pie crusts (or graham cracker pie shell)
- 1⁄2 cup cornstarch
- 1⁄4 cup water (enough to fully dissolve cornstarch)
- 2⁄3 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 12 ounces frozen coconut milk, thawed
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 -4 tablespoons water (enough to fully dissolve cornstarch)
- 2⁄3 cup frozen pineapple-orange-guava juice concentrate
- shredded coconut (optional)
