Next Level Rice Pudding

We’re not sure who first decided to turn rice pudding into ice cream, but we’re sure glad they did! This decadent Frozen Coconut Rice Pudding Ice Cream recipe, made with Success® Jasmine Rice, lets you enjoy two of your favorite desserts in one. By combining the texture of rice pudding with the flavors of coconut, lime and vanilla, this recipe is a perfectly creamy, flavorful frozen treat. It’s certainly one of our favorites and we are sure it will be one of yours, too!

While making traditional ice cream can be tedious and time-consuming, this recipe is simple as 1-2-3. Literally, there are only 3 steps! The first step is to cook the rice using coconut milk instead of water. The second step is to combine the ingredients and let them simmer for several minutes, before cooling them down and refrigerating. The last step is to put the chilled mixture into a loaf pan and place it in the freezer for 4 to 6 hours. The most difficult part of this recipe is waiting the 4-6 hours for it to freeze and be ready to eat! When it finally is ready to serve, make sure to sprinkle each serving with a bit of toasted coconut for the perfect final touch. Bon appetit!
