Sam Choy's Kitchen recipe: Too Cool Fruit Dessert

1 recipe Haupia Squares (see recipe below)
2 cups diced fresh or canned fruit
Mint sprig (optional)
Vanilla ice cream (optional)

Cut haupia into small squares.  Layer each glass with haupia and diced fruit.  Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a mint sprig (optional)

Haupia Squares:
½ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup cornstarch
1 can (12 ounce) frozen coconut milk
1 cup whole milk

In a mixing bowl, stir together sugar and cornstarch.  Add coconut milk and whole milk and stir to blend.  Pour mixture into a saucepan.  Over medium heat cook until the mixture bubbles and thickens.  Remember to stir frequently to prevent the mixture from burning or becoming lumpy.  Pour mixture into pan and place in the refrigerator until well chilled.
