"I love tropical flavors (especially passion fruit and coconut) and I've been courting this particular pie for a while. Haupia has a very pleasant flavor. Haupia is popular in Hawaii (pudding made with coconut milk or coconut cream and cornstarch) and is well used in many desserts. It is especially well used for those who are lactose intolerant, like myself. The prep. time includes overnight setting time."
