Haupia is very simple to make at home. It consists of only four ingredients: Coconut Milk, Water, Cornstarch, and sugar. The main trick is to make sure that the haupia mixture is not grainy before you refrigerate it.

Since our group is definitely potluck oriented I didn't even think of making Haupia (the family in charge of desert made a pineapple desert, plus someone else brought mangoes that I immediately made into a savory mango salad, and we had grilled pineapple). I am so lucky to have friends who really get in the spirit of things.
