  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 4 bananas, sliced crosswise
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Step 1

  • Prepare rice according to package directions.

    Step 2

  • Rice Pudding: In small saucepan set over medium-high heat, stir together heavy cream, milk and sugar. Bring to a boil. Stir in rice. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring often, for 10 to 15 minutes or until rice is very tender and mixture has thickened.

    Step 3

  • Stir in vanilla and lime zest. Let cool completely and chill in refrigerator until ready to serve (or serve rice pudding warm, if preferred, in Step 6).

    Step 4

  • Pineapple coconut syrup: In large skillet set over medium heat, melt butter. Add brown sugar; cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 5 minutes or until brown sugar dissolves. Stir in coconut cream and pineapple juice. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 8 minutes or until mixture starts to thicken.

    Step 5

  • Stir in bananas and cinnamon. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 10 minutes or until bananas start to soften and caramelize.

    Step 6

  • Spoon rice pudding into serving bowls and top with bananas mixture.

    Mocktail Pairing:

    Pair Hawaiian Rice Pudding with vanilla or orange flavored coffee. Use a flavored creamer of choice or an infused oil to add a bit more flavor to your everyday coffee.

    Banana’s Foster Style Rice Pudding

    To give this delicious and indulgent rice pudding a banana’s foster twist, make sure to only slice the banana in half length-wise before cooking and make sure not to stir too much. While the traditional sweet treat is traditionally cooked with rum, this alcohol-free version uses other juices from pineapple. Serve each portion with a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream and garnish with chopped pecans and a pinch of additional cinnamon, if desired!
