    Coconut rice pudding with kiwi fruit

    Serves: 4 - 6


    • 60ml short-grain rice
    • 5ml orange zest
    • 250ml coconut milk
    • 100ml milk
    • 30ml castor sugar
    • 5ml vanilla essence
    • 100ml cream
    • kiwi fruit, papino or berries of your choice, sliced to serve



    Place the rice, zest, coconut milk, milk, sugar and vanilla in a pot over medium heat and slowly bring to the boil without the lid on. Once the mixture is boiling, immediately reduce the heat to low. Place a lid on the pot and cook, stirring occasionally for 1 hour.


    When the rice is cooked, remove the pot from the heat and leave to cool with the lid on. Once the mixture is cooled, stir in the cream, transfer to a covered bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.


    To serve, simply top with the fruit.
