Tropical Ginger Rice Pudding

Rice pudding has always been one of my favorite desserts but lately I've been eating it as a snack with many tropical goodies. This tropical rice pudding has a lovely ginger flavor that really goes well with pineapple, strawberries, bananas,  mango and many more. Enjoy :)

Tropical Ginger Rice Pudding


  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes, toasted
  • 2 cups whole grain brown rice, cooked
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 1½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  1. In small frying pan or in toaster oven, toast coconut flakes, until brown. Set aside, reserving 1 tablespoon.

  3. Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar, spices and coconut flakes.
  4. Top it off with pineapple dices and remaining coconut flakes and serve.
