Tasty Tuesday: Lemon Rice Pudding

What's cookin'? Today's Tasty Tuesday post features a recipe for lemon rice pudding my youngest sister shared with me years ago. This pudding is creamy and oh-so-refreshing. It tastes even better when served with fresh raspberries (or raspberry sauce) and coconut chips from Trader Joe's (or toasted coconut shreds). Just sayin'. This got five thumbs up when we had company last weekend.

Lemon Rice Pudding

2 c. coconut milk (I use light)

1 c. water
1/2 c. arborio rice
1/2 c. sugar, scant
2 t. vanilla extract
1/4 c. fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 t. lemon peel (from about one lemon)

Combine coconut milk, water, rice, sugar and vanilla in a medium saucepan.

Bring to a boil over high heat, then simmer about 35-40 minutes (or until thick), stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.

Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice and peel.

Pour into a serving bowl. Chill at least 1 hour before serving.

Top with toasted coconut and fresh raspberries (or raspberry sauce) right before serving.

If you try this recipe, I'd love to know if you enjoyed it. :)
