Recipe by Sleeplessinmiami
I got this recipe many years ago from a Goya cookbook and I must say that after trying other recipes this is the one I always go back to. It is quick and very easy and is packed with lots of coconut flavor. For the past 6 years my co-workers have asked me to make this for our Thanksgiving luncheon and its always the first dessert to go. One note - I like to use 2 cups of canned coconut milk in place of regular whole milk.
- 1 (15 ounce) cancoco goya cream of coconut
- 2 cups milk
- 1⁄2 cup cornstarch
- 1 pinch salt
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ground cinnamon (to garnish)
