  • 1/2 cup jasmine rice
  • 27 oz coconut milk canned light (canned regular would work also) - see here
  • 1/2 cup sugar of choice* see notes
  • pinch salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla


  • Add all ingredients to a pot (with a lid) and give it a stir.
  • Heat over medium high until mixture barely begins to boil.
  • Reduce heat to low and cover.
  • Cook over low for around 50 minutes, stirring once or twice. Mixture is ready when it thickens and has a pudding like consistency.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  • Serve pudding warm or refrigerate for cold pudding. Top with fresh mango and mint.
  • Enjoy!


  1. Sugar of choice- You can use maple syrup in place of regular granulated sugar or Stevia for a lightened up version. I will sometimes use stevia in place of half the sugar, as I find too much stevia can be bitter. 
  2. Cinnamon and nutmeg are great add-ins. 
  3. Store your prepared pudding in the refrigerator for up to 5 days
  4. Nutrition facts are based on using a 50/50 blend of regular granulated sugar and stevia.
