Coconut Rice Pudding

Coconut Rice

THIS is what you do with that little bit of unflavored extra white rice!

Or that already opened can of coconut milk that you have leftover from a curry you made yesterday.

Its not often that such a simple recipe is so rewarding but this one…. this is pin-worthy.

Thankyou ffffood! (Original recipe from here)


  • 1 1/2 cups of cold cooked rice
  • 1 1/2 cups of coconut milk [I used a regular can of coconut milk. Not condensed. Not sweetened]
  • 1 cups of whole or 2% milk [I used Whole]
  • 1/4 cup of sugar [if you like REALLY sweet things, youll want more. This is perfect for me]
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 vanilla bean, insides scraped out  [I used vanilla extract but I’m sure its even better with the real deal bean]


  1. Combine all the ingredients together in a saucepan and simmer over medium-low heat for 40 minutes.
  2. Allows to cool and serve.


1/5/13  Just made this with freshly cooked rice instead of the cold and it worked really well. I wasn’t sure if it would make a difference but it didn’t seem to. I also used Trader Joes Coconut Cream instead of Coconut Milk. It wasn’t sweetened and it made the pudding really really nice and rich.
