  1. Combine coconut milk, sugar, and vanilla extract in a medium pot and stir until combined. Add rice and bring to a boil over medium heat, about 5 minutes. Cook, gently stirring, until rice has softened and mixture has a slightly soupy but not too drippy consistency, about 20 minutes.
  2. Spoon into small serving dishes. Serve warm or place in refrigerator to chill.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you are short on coconut milk, you can always use a bit of milk or cream to make up for it. Or just be sure to pick up 3 cans of coconut milk.
  • If your pudding is too thick it won't taste as good. If this happens, heat in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds.
