This coconut brown rice pudding recipe is sponsored by Success Rice but all opinions expressed are my own.
Brown rice is a much better choice in our diet than white rice if you are looking to increase your fiber intake. It isn't always easy to include brown rice in my diet, however, for a couple of reasons. If you ask my kids what their favorite type of rice is they will tell you that it is white rice with plenty of butter on it. While they will eat brown rice now as teenagers, it definitely took a while before they really got used to the slightly chewier texture. One of the other reasons that brown rice is harder to use in my cooking than white rice is that it takes SOOOO much longer to cook! In my steamer it takes an HOUR to cook a batch of brown rice! To be honest, I don't always think that far ahead when it comes to making dinner. Some days I hear the garage door open signalling that my husband is home and I have not thought about dinner at all yet.
When I got the chance to work with Success Rice to try out their Boil in Bag varieties of rice I decided to see whether I could replace the white rice in one of my recipes with brown rice. This coconut brown rice pudding recipe is a great way to get kids to eat more brown rice (and as a result, more fiber!) without a single complaint at all. Normally I could not use brown rice in this recipe because it takes too long to cook but by using the Success Rice that is already precooked it made it the perfect high fiber addition to a classic dessert.
Note: I used Simple Truth coconut milk that I bought in the refrigerated section that was 8% fat. You may get different results with different brands or if you use a lower fat version.
Coconut Brown Rice Pudding
I love being able to use Success Brown Rice in this dish. Regular brown rice would not work because it would have to cook for far too long. The Success Boil in Bag brown rice cooked perfectly in my rice pudding recipe and was a delicious way to increase our intake of brown rice. Success® Rice is the ORIGINAL no mess, no measure boil-in-bag rice that cooks perfectly every time and is ready in less than 10 minutes. The white and brown rice can sit for up to 30 minutes before being served, making it foolproof.
