Instructions

1. Place the milk, coconut milk and cinnamon stick into a saucepan and bring to a gentle boil.

2. Add the rice, vanilla and honey. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

Notes

TIP: Use leftover rice from the main course or the day before to save time and give the dish a creamier texture. Adjust cooking time accordingly
