Rice Coconut Raisin Pudding

Stephanie Morris


I wanted to use up the left over cooked white rice I had made the night before but not as part of a dinner meal. I didn't have much in the way of dessert making in the pantry so I came up with this. Surprize! My family LOVES it..there are so many ways this can be made with other ingredients. Enjoy!

How to Make Rice Coconut Raisin Pudding


  1. Take one cup of the milk and mix it with the raisins and coconut in a saucepan and bring to a boil, turn off the heat and let stand.
  2. mix the remaining 2 cups of milk with the vanilla instant pudding in a bowl, whip it with a wisk and add the rice, mix well
  3. Add the remaining cup of milk with the raisins and coconut to the bowl of pudding/rice and mix well with a wire wisk. Cover and refrigerate till serving time. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or Cool Whip.
  4. Optional: You can add a half teaspoon of cinnamon or a 1/4 teaspoon of allspice or nutmeg. My family loves it with allspice. Add some pineapple and you have a pina colada dessert! You can also use apple pie filling in lieu of coconut. Other pairings we have enjoyed are lemon pudding with rice and madarines, chocolate pudding with rice, raisins and oreo cookie pieces.
