WATCH: How to Make Maja Blanca

This creamy and light Filipino favorite is easy to make!


Maja blanca is a light and creamy Filipino dessert, which is essentially made out of coconut milk. This pudding includes other key ingredients such as cornstarch and corn. The cornstarch helps thicken the mixture of the dessert, making it easier to keep its shape once set in the molds. As for the corn, it gives off a sweet and delectable crunchy texture in every spoonful. Top with toasted coconut or latik and serve it cold for a delightful dessert.
