What you will need

1 (13 ounce) can Thai coconut milk (do not use a lowfat variety)

6 tablespoons sugar

6-8 tablespoons arrowroot powder or cornstarch *

3/4 cup water

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional: toasted coconut for topping

* adjust the cornstarch according to how firm you want the haupia to be. I preferred it just barely slice-able and more pudding-like (as pictured) however, my boys loved it a bit more firm like jello.
