Coconut Rice Pudding

Coconut Rice Pudding with Holy Crap cereal

A favorite winter dessert around our house is this creamy coconut rice pudding. It's a healthier, and tastier version, of a classic rice pudding. I like how the tang of the orange peel balances its heartiness. For every day I’ll serve it in a small ramekin. For company, it's easily dressed up in a martini glass with a garnish.

Many people are turned off by the high fat and high-calorie content of coconut products. Coconut products are highly beneficial to the body!
Here's why:
  • The fat in coconut is made up of MCT oils (medium chain triglycerides) which are different from the fat we store on our body.
  • This fat is metabolized differently than most dietary fats. It is highly utilizable for body energy functions.
  • It can actually boost your metabolism and help you to lose weight!
  • Although coconut is a saturated fat - it is a different form than animal fat and always free of cholesterol.
  • Coconut fats are great for cooking because they don't oxidize with heat as do many liquid vegetable oils.
  • Coconut milk is a great alternative to dairy! Great quality fats with no lactose or cholesterol!"
