Coconut Rice Pudding with Ginger-Flavored Pineapple-Berries Topping

 This coconut rice pudding with ginger-flavored pineapple-berries topping is an explosion of colors and flavors! The sweet-sour-spicy taste will amaze you!

This is probably the best rice pudding I’ve ever made! I believe that the photos speak for themselves, right?! When I got the idea of making this coconut rice pudding I didn’t even imagine it will look so good! The taste is pretty amazing too. I love how the textures blend so well together and the topping is sweet, sour and spicy at the same time!

This coconut rice pudding is part of an ongoing campaign I’m part of, hosted by the Romanian blog The campaign is called The Asian Connection and 12 Romanian bloggers were invited to cook with Shan’shi products and create unique and original Asian-inspired recipes.

Coconut Rice Pudding

I must confess it is quite a challenge for me to cook Asian recipes. I’m not that familiar with Asian flavors and cooking techniques, but the products I received are very interesting and already inspired me to create some delicious Asian-inspired vegan recipes.

This coconut rice pudding is the first recipe created for this campaign. I used coconut milk from Shan’shi which I absolutely love! This was the first time I ever used coconut milk and will certainly not be the last!

I love everything about how this recipe turned out! The taste, the looks, the texture.. everything! It’s super easy to make and you should give it a try! 🙂
