Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding

 

I love this time of year, there is something so comforting about wrapping yourself in a blanket, sipping warm tea from a favorite cup and eating a bowl of something with just the right amount of sweetness.  It’s mid-September and the leaves are starting to change color, the dog days of Summer are ending and a crisp breeze is in the air.  I can’t help but let my mind wander and think about my childhood days when my Grandma Edith would make her home-made rice pudding.  

I also love playing around in the kitchen and coming up with new recipes.  So, here’s my unique version of baked rice pudding, using ingredients that fit into a healthier lifestyle. 

It’s so creamy and delicious, and super simple to make.  GIve it a try and let me know what you think!
