Thanksgiving was not always a traditional holiday in Puerto Rico – but as more Puerto Rican families called the US home, they began celebrating the holiday, but in their own unique way. One of the most delicious items that embodies Puerto Rican Thanksgiving is Tembleque – which means ‘ wiggly” – a creamy coconut pudding that melts in your mouth.


  • 1/2 can of cream of coconut
  • 1cups organic milk
  • 1cup cornstarch 
  • tablespoons sugar 
  • teaspoon vanilla  
  • Coconut flakes and cinnamon to taste for garnish
