    This is a well loved Filipino recipe, which is a chocolate rice pudding made with coconut milk. If you love simple, homey puds, this is a great recipe to try. Everything you want in a comfort pud, but a little more exciting!

    Serves: 6 

    • 185g glutinous rice
    • 475ml half fat coconut milk
    • 45g cocoa powder
    • 200g caster sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 225ml coconut cream

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Combine the glutinous rice and light coconut milk in a pot; bring to the boil for 10 minutes, while stirring occasionally to keep the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
    2. Stir the cocoa powder, sugar and salt into the rice; reduce heat to low, cover, and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the rice is tender, about 10 minutes more. Add the thick coconut milk to the mixture and stir to combine. Serve hot.


    Glutinous rice is also known as 'sweet rice' or 'sticky rice' and can be found online or in Chinese or Asian shops.

    Two of my most favorite ingredients- coconut and chocolate- combined in one! I used jasmine rice and garnished with a little toasted coconut. However, next time I think I will reduce the cocoa powder to 3/4 cup instead of a full cup so the coconut flavor is more pronounced. Thanks for this recipe!  -  08 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    FOr those of you people saying it is too thick, it is supposed to be like that. Before you eat it, I always add evaporated milk on my bowl. Makes the pudding less thick and the unserved pudding won't be runny. (Like the rice sweat all of the chocolate liquids)  -  06 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
