Creamy coconut rice pudding is a simple one-pot dessert.  Add a little granola, and you've transformed it into breakfast.  The rice is perfectly tender without being mushy.   This will become a family favorite.


  • 1 cup (210 g) Arborio rice
  • 2 1/2 cups (590 g) water
  • 2 1/2 cups (590 g) warm whole milk
  • 1 - 13.5 oz can (382 g) unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 - 14 oz can (396 g) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon (1.6 g) ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.6) salt
  • Granola, for topping


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine rice and water.  Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium-low.  Simmer until most of the water has been absorbed, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the milk and coconut milk and simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and rice is soft, about 20-24 minutes.
  3. Stir in condensed milk, cinnamon and salt and cook over low heat for 5 minutes or until mixture is thick and creamy.
  4. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.  Spoon rice pudding into bowls or glasses, top with granola and serve immediately.
