Put the Lime in the Coconut

Transport the family to a tropical Island for dessert! Imagine the waving palm trees and warm sun on your face as you enjoy this creamy Triple Coconut Lime Rice Pudding.

This rice pudding dessert is fun for the whole family to prepare. Have one person cut up and juice the fresh limes while another prepares the coconut flakes and another stirs the rice to make sure it stays rich and creamy.

Note: Rice pudding is best cooked with a certain type of rice. Our kitchen chefs have tested and jasmine is the best variety. It is long grain and therefore contains less starch than shorter grain rice. Too much starch will lead to mushy results. Long grain jasmine rice adds a nice flavor to this dish while also helping maintain its rich and creamy texture. For a show-stopper, impress your guests by serving this pudding in coconut-shaped bowls.

And Shake it All Up

Want to shake this recipe up and give it a personalized touch? Why not add candied or dried pineapple along with the coconut shavings? Or, replace the 2 tbsp of sugar with honey drizzled over the top. Just can’t get enough coconut?
