Coconut Rice Pudding 0 Picture


  • 1 quart whole milk (I used 2% and it came out fine)
  • 1 cup Arborio rice (about 8 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 – 14 ounce can of unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup coarsely shredded unsweetened coconut


Step 1

In a large saucepan combine the milk rice and sugar with 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderate heat stirring frequently until the rice is tender and suspended in a thick, creamy sauce (about 30 minutes). Stir in the coconut milk and simmer, stirring occasionally until the rice is very tender and the liquid is thickened (about 10 minutes). Let cool slightly.

The mixture might look a little loose, but don't worry, it will thicken as it sits.

In a medium saucepan, toast the coconut over a moderate heat, stirring constantly, until fragment and golden (about 4 minutes). Transfer to a plate to cool.

Spoon the rice pudding into bowls garnished with coconut and serve.
