    3. Tip mixture into a glass serving bowl and gently press down to remove any air pockets. Sprinkle with freshly grated coconut (optional). Coer and chill for 4 hours till set. Pour condensed milk over pudding if desired and serve. Abdecken und 4 Stunde im K├╝hlschrank fest werden lassen. Nach Belieben mit Kondensmilch begie├čen und servieren.


    If you prefer a lighter pudding, use less milk and more water.
