  • 1 400 ml/ 14.5 oz can coconut milk full fat, not boxed
  • 3 Tbsp sugar

  • Heat coconut milk in small sauce pan until steaming but not boiling. If the coconut milk looks clumpy, don't worry. (Sometimes the solids are stuck to the lid of the can.) Whisk the solids and liquid together until well combined.
  • Add sugar and whisk until completely dissolved. Using a sifter, add matcha powder and whisk well.

*This recipe is easy to multiply.  Simply double or triple the amounts.  Just remember, every 4 large or 6 medium servings requires 1 can coconut milk (400ml/14.5oz can), 3 Tbsp sugar, 1 1/2 tsp gelatine, 1/4 cup water, and 1 Tbsp matcha powder.  
*5.  If the Matcha looks clumpy, you can use a sieve when pouring everything into a measuring cup.  That will ensure a lump-free pudding.
