About Puerto Rican Tembleque – Coconut Pudding

  • The recipe originated in Puerto Rico but there’s a few variants around Latin America.
  • In Spanish the word “Tembleque” is an advective to describe something that shakes. Due to the Jell-O, like texture this dessert shakes when is prepared correctly. That’s why they called it tembleque.
  • This recipe is made with simple ingredients. You only need, coconut milk, sugar, salt, vanilla, corn starch and cinnamon.
  • Also, you can top your tembleque with a caramel sauce, fruits or any other sauce.
  • Replace your ingredients with other flavors for a delicious variation. In addition, you can add extracts and even dried fruits inside the tembleque.

Here’s a Tutorial for my Tembleque recipe:


My abuela used to make the best tembleque. Furthermore she loved making Christmas desserts for friends and family. I hope you give this recipe a try and let me know.

Tips to Make Tembleque:

  • Use regular canned coconut milk. Make sure to shake well before using. Also strain the milk using a fine mesh strainer.
  • The Trader Joe brand is great but it’s not the best for making tembleque.
  • Do not leave unattended.
  • Mix the corn starch with a few tablespoons of milk inside a small container. Whisk until is fully incorporated. Then add it to your coconut milk. This process will avoid a lumpy mixture.
