Rice Pudding is easily one of my favorite things to eat. It is good cold, warm, hot, or anywhere in between! I recently decided to try adding in white rice once or twice a week. White rice is considered a "safe starch" for those with gut issues, like me. It is simpler to digest and even though we've been told to stick to whole grains, in my case - or anyone with adrenal fatigue or gut issues - white rice is a safer choice. Hooray, because white rice is delicious! To read more about that, click HERE or HERE. As mentioned in both links, white rice shouldn't be your main food group, but eaten as part of a whole foods diet, it is a very safe, gentle carbohydrate that really nourishes those with adrenal problems.
8 cups coconut milk*
2 cups organic white basmati rice
1/4 cup butter or ghee
pinch of real salt
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract*
1 teaspoon cinnamon
In a medium pot, combine coconut milk, rice, and salt. Heated to boiling, then simmer with lid titled (or it will boil over continuously!) for 20 minutes. Stir in honey, vanilla, and cinnamon, then serve and enjoy!
*You can make your own coconut milk easily by combining 4 cups boiling water and 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut milk in a blender. Blend on high for one minute, then strain. What you have leftover is coconut milk! You can also use a boxed coconut milk like So Delicious. Just be sure to check for any weird additives or sugar.
*Use vanilla that is made with just alcohol and vanilla beans. Many have sugar added. Kirkland Signature just re-branded their vanilla and it is now sugar free. Hooray!
