Coconut Rice Pudding
Welcome to paradise with this easy to make, no-bake dessert. All you need is a spoon and an appetite. This Coconut Rice Pudding is the kind of treat you’ll be opening the fridge and stealing some spoonfuls. I’ll just have one, or 2… make it 3.
If you’re a fan of rice puddings, you’ll love this tropical upgrade that makes it 10000% much tastier. Add some toasted coconut on top you’ll be automatically transported to the big islands.
I made it with the fear that it wouldn’t work. Thankfully the dessert was flavorful, easy to make and definitely a keeper. Next time I’ll make a double batch and divide it in mason jars! Super cute treat to take to parties and get-togethers. Everybody can have their own little Coconut Rice Pudding. Sweet!
On this post, you will find step by step pictures of the process, that way, you can guarantee that your Coconut Rice Pudding will be a success.
To get started, we boil the rice and water together. When it starts boiling, we place a lid on the pot and reduce the heat low. We cook the rice until the water has completely absorbed and the rice is soft and fluffy.
At this point, we add the pinch of cinnamon, condensed milk and coconut milk.
This will cook on low heat for 15-20 minutes or until the mixture thickens. The mixture will boil. Stir constantly so it doesn’t stick on the bottom of the pot.
As soon as it starts thickening, your Coconut Rice Pudding is ready. It’s important not to overcook the rice since it will get hard when it cools. Remove it from the fire when it looks thick and bit soupy:
Remove it from the fire and pour it in a bowl. We add the flaked coconut and mix. Let it cool completely and then stick in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours. That’s it! Super easy and delish.

This is one of the best Coconut rice pudding recipes I’ve tried. For my tasting I added some lemon rind as per the milk rice pudding recipes but the coconut in this recipe just bursts on your mouth. Well done!
Thank you so much Marie! I’m glad you liked it. Have a great day!
Making this for the second time. Absolutely love, thank you for the recipe!
Thanks for the feedback Kami! I am glad you liked it. We have it over here a lot and it’s my girls favorite.

Can I do it in my crock pot?
I haven’t tried it in the crock pot and since this requires stirring, I am not sure it would work out
What do u mean by fluffing the rice with a fork?
Just mix the rice using a fork Renee
I followed the directions but there is such an after taste I had to add some cream of coconut and sugar. It was a very funny taste. It’s a shame too I love rice pudding.Ill probably won’t make this again
Really? I am so sorry that happened. Is there a chance part of the rice burned at the bottom?
Hi I am in the process of making this recipe and what size can is the condensed milk?
