Indulgent Coconut Rice Pudding
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 4 hours
I made this using Silk coconut milk and it came out very good. Instead of using cranberries, I used dried cherries (about half a cup or so). I cooked if for four hours and consistency is perfect. It's a little sweet. Next time I may reduce the amount of sugar by maybe one-quarter cup. Only thing is the rice turned brown. Not sure if it's from the cherries or it absorbed the vanilla and cinnamon. It doesn't look that pretty, but it tastes good!
I made this today because I’m a HUGE coconut fan and I thought the picture looked delicious. I was not disappointed! It was creamy and thick and the coconut flavor really shined through.It was a bit on the too sweet side but I can easily rectify that next time by reducing the sugar to 3/4 cup.I used Goya brand coconut milk, half regular and half reduced fat. I didn’t have dried cranberries on hand but I did have dried Montmorency cherries so I used those. I think the cherry flavor blended very well with the coconut.I further enhanced the coconut flavor by sprinkling each serving with toasted coconut and sliced almonds. This was a big hit with my coconut loving family!Not sure why one reviewer thought this recipe was tasteless so don’t let that stop you from giving this a try.
I’m surprised Lynn thought this recipe didn’t have any taste. As a matter of fact, I almost didn’t try making it because of her review. I consider myself the kind of cook that could make anything taste better, so I decided to go ahead and make it anyway. I think it’s the coconut’s fault. I’m a sucker for all things coconut.I made this recipe per instructions with the one exception of omitting the cranberries during cooking. I thought we would like the flexibility to add-in our own “treats” later.I would definitely make this recipe again, as it had great coconut flavor thanks to Sun Luck Coconut Milk (Maybe Lynn used a different brand than I did ?) but I think I would reduce the amount of Turbinado as it was a little too sweet for me.Also, I accidentally cooked it too long and it was pretty thick. I decided that I actually liked it that way because we could further customize the pudding with either additional milk, coconut milk, or almond milk.We’ve since experimented with our add-ins, trying pecans, toasted coconut, bananas , pineapple, toasted sesame, chocolate chips and even lime juice!I know, we’re a crazy bunch.:)

Terrible,This is the exact reason why people dont do healthy or good for you. the food has no flavor or zest.please, dont waste that 3 dollar can of coconut milk on this recipe. No flavor, no texture and no taste.
