Coconut rice pudding

    1 hour 10 min

    This is a very good pudding and really cheap too. A nice change from regular rice pudding. Serve with toffee sauce, mango or apricot jam, fresh or dried fruit. You could try using some coconut milk in place of regular milk, for more coconut flavour.

    This was nice and easy to make, my son loved it. Next time I would use less dessicated coconut but replace some of the regular milk with a can of coconut milk, and I would also use white sticky rice as it lends itself really well to puddings. I give it 3 stars, my son gives it 5!  -  25 Mar 2012
