Several months ago Hubby and I went on a mini-vacay to Virginia Beach where we stopped at a Greek restaurant and ate dinner. It was Hubby’s very first ever Gyro! (I know, right? I couldn’t believe it either.) Well, of course he loved it and we went back for lunch the next day. This was during my Gluten-Free February so I ate a huge Greek salad with gyro meat on it and it was divine! But that’s not what this post is about today (sorry to tease you). We also had an awesome Greek-style rice pudding for dessert and ever since I have been craving some rice pudding. Now this isn’t the same recipe by any means but if you’re a rice pudding fan I think you will like this one.
Vanilla Coconut Rice Pudding
2 cups of cold, cooked rice*
2 cups 2% or whole milk
1 1/2 cups coconut milk (not coconut water)
1 T vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 T powdered sugar
Combine all the ingredients, except the cinnamon and powdered sugar, together in a saucepan and simmer on medium-low heat for about 45 minutes; until thickened. *I like to reserve about 1/2 cup or so of the rice to add in after the cooking process for a little extra chewy factor, but you can cook the rice as you like. Allow to cool and then stir in the cinnamon and powdered sugar. Sprinkle additional cinnamon on top, if desired. Enjoy 🙂 Easy-peasy and super delicious!
