Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding with Arborio Rice

Rice pudding reminds me of my primary school days – I was one of the ones that loved it and looked forward to it! I also remember fondly my grandmother making rice pudding for us.

When I started weaning my children it was one of the things I made for them. Rice pudding is a classic dessert and it’s so simple to make. You can make it in a pan on the hob but I prefer to do mine in the oven as it needs less attention so I can get on with doing other things. As time has gone on I’ve experimented with different flavours of rice pudding and a quick Google search shows countless recipes and combinations. However, recently I came across this recipe in an old cook book and I’d not seen it before so just had to try it. I’ve tweaked a few things, namely the quantities as we like larger servings in this family! I also decided to try it with arborio rice as this can be bought in our local supermarket but pudding rice can’t. It’s a total hit with our family, why not try it and let me know what you think?
