Tropical Rice Treat



A quick and easy recipe- great for breakfast, a snack or even a healthy dessert!

Ingredients:

1 cup cooked brown rice
1 cup unsweetened almond breeze (almond milk) or light soymilk (*use a gluten-free brand if you are on a gluten-free diet)
1 tablespoon flaked coconut (unsweetened)
1.5 teaspoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons crushed pineapple

Directions:

Put the rice and the milk in a small pot and bring to a light boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 7-9 minutes, stirring occasionally until the milk is absorbed and the rice thickens to a porridge consistency. Stir in the brown sugar, pineapple and coconut and cook for another 30 seconds-1 minute and serve.

Makes 2 servings
