Lately I have been seeing the most delicious mangoes in the store lately so I knew it was the right time to share this recipe. This is actually a yummy pudding that I made last year for Chinese New Year, but I thought it also makes a great late-spring dessert as well.
This pudding is very decadent and a treat for sure- not an every day indulgence as it does contain organic sugar, but one that you will be sure to enjoy!
I hope that you have fun making this for your next party or get together. The recipe is based on a Mexican rice pudding that I love. I converted it into a dairy free recipe and it is so amazingly delicious!
Sweet Coconut Rice Pudding:
Makes: 4 large or 8 small servings
Coconut Rice Pudding:
4 2/3 cups water + 4 cups water
3/4 cup short grain white rice
2 cups scalded full fat coconut milk (To scald the coconut milk, bring the milk to boil in a saucepan, then take it off the heat)
1 cup full fat coconut milk
1 cup organic sugar
2 sticks cinnamon
Ground cinnamon to taste
2 mangoes, peeled and cut into thin slices
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Make the Cinnamon Mangoes:

2. Combine the coconut sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
3. Brush the mangoes with the coconut oil
4. Sprinkle the mangoes with the coconut sugar-cinnamon mixture

Make the Coconut Rice Pudding:
1. Bring the water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Take off the heat and add in the rice. Let stand for 20 minutes. Rinse rice thoroughly and drain.
2. Bring 4 cups water to boil in a separate saucepan. Boil uncovered for 20-30 minutes or until the rice is tender. Keep the extra water in the pan.
3. Mix the scalded full fat coconut milk, full fat coconut milk, sugar and cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Cook for 45 minutes or until the mixture becomes thicker and changes color. Add in the rice. Cook for about 40 minutes or until pudding thickens. Remove from the heat and stir to cool.
4. Spoon the rice pudding into a bowl and place cinnamon mangoes around the rim to serve.
