  • 1 ½ cups water

  • ¾ cup white rice

  • 1 (13.5 ounce) can coconut milk

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup milk

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin coconut oil

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon coconut extract

  • 1 wedge fresh pineapple (Optional)


  1. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.

  2. Combine rice, coconut milk, sugar, and salt in a pot; cook and stir until thickened and creamy, about 20 minutes.

  3. Beat milk and egg together in a bowl. Spoon 1 to 2 tablespoons rice mixture into milk mixture and beat to warm and temper milk mixture. Slowly pour milk mixture into rice mixture while constantly beating; cook, stirring constantly, until pudding is heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.

  4. Remove pot from heat and stir coconut oil, vanilla extract, and coconut extract into pudding; refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour. Garnish pudding with pineapple wedge.
