  • Primal Haupia

    So I made haupia for international food night at my church the other evening and everyone was demanding the recipe. Thought I would share (I trimmed it down a little for a smaller serving below). I did not make it the traditional way, which calls for cornstarch & lots of sugar.

    1 13.5 oz can COLD coconut milk (I used Native Forest, be sure to shake well before opening)
    3 packets unflavored gelatin
    stevia to taste (use a little more than you think you will need, cuz the sweetness dies down a bit as the haupia sets later)
    vanilla
    (I used liquid vanilla cream stevia-- kill 2 birds with one stone)

    Pour 1/2 cup cold coconut milk into small bowl & combine well with gelatin. It will be doughy. Allow to rest.
    In small saucepan, warm remainder of coconut milk. Add gelatin mixture and stir constantly over low heat for 5 mins.
    Pour into dish of your choice. Place in fridge 2 hours or until set.

    VLC choice dessert! Enjoy

    Hmmm...never thought of using gelatin, thanks for that. I use tapioca or arrowroot. About how much stevia did you use?

      I used 8-10 drops of the vanilla cream stevia. Really it depends on how sensitive one's palette is. If someone is just coming off of Whole 30, their palette is going to be a whole lot more sensitive to sweet than someone who eats sugar daily. Just add your sweetener of choice to the coconut milk as it warms and keep tasting until it's where you want it.

        Thanks, Dr. Bork! I tried some haupia when I went to Hawaii a couple years ago and liked it. Now it could be a staple. Especially welcome in this heat, we're experiencing.

          Yes it is very refreshing. My hubby loathes coconut, but enjoys haupia.
          I ammended the recipe. Forgot to mention that the 1/2c used for the gelatin should be cold.

            oh god I love haupia. One of the few things I truly miss since going PB is Haupia Bread Pudding using King's Hawaiian Bread Rolls

              I'm trying to figure out how "they" make haupia ice cream.

              on the bread pudding note-- could you maybe try haupia banana bread pudding? Just an idea, since you can use bananas, pb, and the ground meal of your choice.
