I made a yummy, relatively healthy, vegan rice pudding for those of us that still crave a sweet now and then. I am trying to limit sugar, but I believe this recipe is healthy as well as delicious!
1 cup organic risotto rice
2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla extract (or to taste)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Nutiva Coconut Manna
Bring the two cups of unsweetened coconut milk to a boil. Add the cup of rice, vanilla extract, cinnamon, squirt of agave syrup, and a few spoonfuls of the coconut manna (optional). Cover, lower temperature and cook until almost all of the liquid is absorbed and add a handful of raisins. Cook until done. May be eaten hot or cold.
I ordered the Coconut Manna from the Nutiva company and it is the best tasting raw, organic, unrefined coconut meat I have ever tasted. I eat it right from the jar! It tastes sweet also, so you don't need to add much agave syrup if using the manna.
P.S. I borrowed the picture from the Internet. We ate it before I could take one of my own!
