I love rice pudding, and I love coconut. I don't remember where on the internet I found this recipe, but it was an instant favorite. It takes very little effort, but you do need at least 45 minutes to let it simmer on its own. There is very little prep involved, other than opening cans of coconut milk. Speaking of coconut milk, this is one occasion where light is definitely okay. The pudding is incredibly rich, and you won't miss the extra fat at all.
Coconut rice pudding (makes a lot - probably 10 servings)
3 cans coconut milk, 14 oz. each (I used light)
1/2 cup sugar (increase slightly if your coconut is unsweetened)
1 cup shredded coconut (sweetened)
2/3 cup arborio rice (you can use other rice, but this one is the best)
3/4 tsp salt
Dash of vanilla extract
Combine everything except the vanilla in a large saucepan. Bring to a gentle boil, reduce the heat and then simmer gently for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. The pudding thickens up considerably and it's hard to resist licking the spoon. Once the rice is cooked and the pudding is thick, remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
Tastes equally great hot or cold, in my opinion. And especially lovely with some fresh nutmeg grated over the top.

I am definitely trying this, maybe even today. I have all the ingredients in the house. Yum.ReplyDelete
Rice pudding is easy as pie, and very tasty. I make mine by taking leftover rice, putting milk, coconut milk and water in and putting it back on the rice cooker. I also like to put raisins in mine. Server warm or cold with Cinnamon sugar on top. :DReplyDelete
I made this last night and it was so good! It came out a bit too sweet, however, and so I will put less sugar in next time but will be sure to make this again and again. I can't wait for the leftovers, too sweet or not.ReplyDelete
I'm here from the link at The Kitchn and just wanted to say I made this tonight for our department potluck tomorrow, and I'm so pleased! I've never made rice pudding before and am not much of a cook, so I was a little apprehensive, but this was so easy and came out really well. I couldn't find sweetened coconut shreds, so I got unsweetened, and they were finely shredded instead of like in the photo. I added maybe an extra tablespoon or two of sugar, and used about a half teaspoon of vanilla.ReplyDelete
Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for posting this! I think this may be the first time I've ever brought something I made to a potluck, instead of going out and buying something. :)
