Truly Extraordinary Black Rice Pudding

Add the water and Light Coconut Milk to a medium pot. Make sure that you store thoroughly to ensure the coconut milk and water are evenly mixed. When the mixture just begins to steam, reduce heat and simmer over med-low heat.

Add rice and stir until liquid is absorbed and rice is creamy. Cover and cook on medium-low for 15 minutes.

Add the Orange Zest, Vanilla, cover and cook for 10 minutes.

At this point stir in sugar and salt. Cook for 5 minutes more until rice is tender, yet slightly firm consistency.

Cool pudding to room temperature, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 3 hours. Pudding may also be served warm.

Spoon into dishes and pour a small amount of Light coconut cream on top.
