Coconut BlancMange recipe - a Caribbean inspired pudding served with fresh fruit is a decadent spring dessert

Hi guys, it’s Renz again. Today I’m bringing you a recipe for a dessert I loved growing up: BlancMange. I was always in extreme joy, not only because this is a deliciously sweet, creamy pudding but the process of making this in a mold was fun for me.

If you are not following me over on my blog HomeMadeZagat, I mentioned that my mom came all the way from Trinidad and Tobago to stay with me for about a month. This is the longest she has ever stayed. Usually, after 2 weeks she is “missing her bed” and ready to go. Her being with me for a length of time allowed us to relive so many food memories. We cooked up a storm with Saturday soup and aloo pies, and she made pelau. Really, really good times.

I loved that we were able to try a lot of different foods while growing up. My mom’s family appreciated good food and new experiences and she allowed us the same. From appetizers to desserts, we got to try things, at least once.

I remember vividly our adventures of making blancmange. The dessert is a jellied pudding that we would set in a mold and wait excitedly for it to set. Then it would be the skill of getting it out of the mold without damaging it. Trust me even when damaged this is still yummy.

Honestly, this is not a traditional “Caribbean” dish. No fruits or island spices are involved. If you didn’t know, Trinidad and Tobago was once owned by the French (and the British and the Spanish). As a result, of ownership and being inhabited by slaves and indentured laborers, we have a lot of foods that are incorporated and infused with the African and East Indian influences. We are a true melting pot.
