“You could make this using all milk but it will not be as creamy. For coconut rice pudding, use one 400-ml can good quality coconut milk and 3/4 cup milk. This complete recipe may easily be doubled, adjust the amount of sugar to suit taste, if you are planning to serve this rice pudding cold then add in another 1/4 cup milk, to serve warm make as stated.”
