Rice Pudding with Mandarin Orange {Recipe}

rice pudding with mandarin orange

This creamy and lightly sweetened pudding is sure to be enjoyed by the whole family. The toasted coconut creates a delicate crunch and the Mandarin wedges add a little extra sweetness and vitamin C. Who says desserts can’t be low in sugar and healthy?

Rice Pudding with Mandarin Orange
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 Cup (500 mL) Milk
  • 1 Cup (250 mL) Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk Regular
  • 1 Small Club House Cinnamon Stick and Club House Ground Cinnamon (for garnish)
  • 1 Cup (250 mL) Thai Kitchen Jasmine Rice
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) Club House Vanilla Extract
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) Billy Bee Honey
  • 1 Mandarin Orange, peeled and pulled into segments to garnish
  • Toasted coconut to garnish

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.

3. While the rice is cooking, heat a small pan to medium heat and gently toast the coconut until it is slightly golden brown.

4. Once rice is cooked and mixture is creamy, approximately 15 minutes, transfer to a bowl and garnish with the mandarin orange pieces, some cinnamon and toasted coconut.

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

    I’ve only tried rice pudding once, looked nothing like your picture, lol. I bet yours tasted much better.

    This would be a good treat for my Mom. She was diagnosed with Celiac disease and misses good “treats.”

    This sounds delicious! I’ve made rice pudding before, but I don’t know why I’ve never though to use coconut milk! yum!

    I’ve never tried rice pudding before but think it would be great to try it with this recipe. Sounds delicious!

  24. Elizabeth Matthiesen — February 16, 2015 @ 7:29 pm (#)

    I’m afraid that I don’t like rice pudding nor coconut so this wouldn’t be for me. I know my daughter in Australia cooks a lot with coconut milk but I think that might be due to her husband who’s French/Vietnamese

  25. Victoria Ess — February 17, 2015 @ 3:51 pm (#)

    This sounds really good! I have never made or had rice pudding and was always skeptical at the idea, but it sounds delicious!

  26. Krista M — February 18, 2015 @ 2:01 pm (#)

    What a perfect dish to create out of boring leftover rice and I’m a big coconut fan. It really does look so delicious. I love how all your recipe photos are so fresh & clear.

    For some reason I have never been a fan of rice pudding, perhaps because whilst having school dinners another child poured a whole salt shaker on my rice pudding! So far there’s only been one time that I’ve enjoyed it and that was a special rice pudding (Ris a l’amande) that I had at Christmas whilst living in Denmark.

    This looks so delicious and refreshing–I will have to try it soon!

    I love rice pudding, though I usually use almond milk instead of regular – I might try this out with that little substitution.
