Vegan Puerto Rican Tembleque

Have you ever tried a Puerto Rican Tembleque? Is a coconut gelatin cream filled with deliciousness, I would say this is one of my favorite desserts during the Christmas Season. I love "tembleques" but they are really not as healthy as we would like them to be. So I made a new version keeping the flavor and texture. You gotta try it!


  • 2 cups of coconut cream
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla flavoring
  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup of agar flakes
  • 1 tablespoon of kudzu (dissolve in 2 tablespoons of water)
  • 1/16 tsp of stevia or as desired
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

STEP 1: In a medium saucepan add coconut milk and Agar Flakes and bring it to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes.

STEP 2: Then add coconut cream, vanilla, stevia and salt and mix well.

STEP 3: Slowly add Kuzu, (TIP: make sure you mix well the Kuzu mixture before you pour it in.)

STEP 4: Bring the mix to boil again until a creamy texture is achieved. Pour mixture into a mold (Tip: you can use cupcake mold.) and place it in the freezer for an hour or until the creamy mixture is solid and ready to gooble up!


Offer and enjoy!
