Coconut & Vanilla Bean Rice Pudding

FullSizeRender

A very easy dessert which also serves as breakfast. This rice pudding is only sweetened with coconut sugar, that’s why it has that darker color. I used arborio rice which makes it creamier due to the fact that it is higher in starch.

This recipe serves 3.

Ingredients:

For the Rice:

200gr of arborio rice

400ml of coconut milk

3 cups of boiling water

1 vanilla bean

½ cup of coconut sugar

Juice of ½ a lime

Toppings:

Chopped mango

Raspberries

Passion fruit

Mint

 

Place the coconut milk, rice, boiling water, vanilla bean scraped seeds, vanilla pod and the coconut sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Cook for 30 minutes while stirring, until most of the liquid has evaporated and the rice is cooked. Then remove the vanilla pod. Add the lime juice and mix well.

Serve with some mango, raspberries, passion fruit and mint. Enjoy.
