I used orzo pasta (I was making some anyway for another dish--I just threw in extra especially for this dessert) and Truvia in place of the white sugar (I googled the amount and I got eight packets to equal 1/3 of a cup). I chilled my Kitchen Aid mixer and beater attachment for an hour or so before whipping the cream. As I was whipping the cream, I gradually added one packet at a time until I'd added them all. This was a wonderful dessert--the kids and I thought it was incredible. I was so tickled that I pulled it off using orzo and Truvia! I can't get over how easy it was. I think I might take one of the other reviewer's suggestions and try using chopped mandarin oranges and maybe a little unsweetened coconut in this dessert next time. Read More

this was a really great dessert. not too sweet very yummy quick and easy to make. I have 6 kids and all 6 of them raved. hubby and I prefer the orig. recipe but here are some of the variations we tried. I added some chopped coconut to the second batch and it was pretty good the kids also asked for chopped bananas to go with the coconut. I also tried cooking the rice in coconut milk and using it that way. (That was really good too.) so we had the coconut flavor with out the coconut its self. Also we just used the directions on the bag of rice for how much water to cook the rice in. Read More

This was good but it was better once I added some coconut. I'm rating it 4 stars because the recipe does not tell you how much water to use for boiling the rice and that is needed information. I decided to make rice for dinner and use 1 cup cooked rice for this recipe because rice triples when cooked. The recipe was good but was lacking something so I added some coconut and it was perfect for our tastes. Thank you Honda for sharing your recipe we really enjoyed it! Read More

A super easy light dessert. My mom made this and always added mini marshmallows. It brought the flavor together nicely for those of you looking for "something else." She called it Heavenly Rice. Read More
