Haupia

 

 

 

 

Haupia is a delicious, Hawaiian desert traditionally made with  pia starch (arrow root).   Powdered pia was mixed with coconut milk and sugarcane  juice, and then baked in the imu.  The result is a firm, sweet pudding called haupia.  Haupia is a favorite desert among locals and is frequently served at lu’aus and other Hawaiian events.
