I don’t know if aloe vera is common in the islands. Probably not. But I thought it would be a perfect match for Hawaiian dessert haupia. And yes, that was a delicious pairing of flavors and textures.
I prepared a haupia, coconut custard.

To serve it the next day, with fresh aloe vera, and super-ripe sudachi lemon.
Very juicy aloe.
Like cancoillotte, natto, okra, it has the sluggish texture.
I mixed the cubes of aloe flesh with the lemon juice and a little honey.
Now look at that :
When it rains, it pours. Well, that’s fun… As long as the food is yummy, no problem. That’s only the blogger in me that got the issues. The blog gods don’t like you :
1. when the food is invisible.
2. when the food is un-cuttable, un-servable.
3. when it looks weird on the plate.
So, the 3 today ? I should play at the lottery. It’s simply rrrrhhhaaa… as you know it’s super delicious and you can’t show it.
Well, the solution is to serve in a cute dessert cup.
