Lightened Rice Pudding

Cuisinart original

The great thing about this dessert is that it can be served warm out of the cooking pot or chilled. Chilled rice pudding does set up and has a different consistency than when served warm. If not serving immediately, stir some extra coconut milk or water into the rice pudding to make it creamier.
