Coconut Creamed Rice (Microwave)

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by Mandy

I posted this for the Caribbean leg of ZWT III & only just got around to trying it myself. I did a half batch using coconut cream & cooked for approx 12 mins, I also used Splenda in place of sugar. My microwave does run a bit hot so if your is the same I would cook on MED. This is a lovely simple & quick dessert or if you're like me you could have it for breakfast

Very good taste. I had a hard time with it. Because my microwave has too much power. I had to do it again stirring each 2 minutes, and microwave at 50 %. I had to add more coconut milk and water because it was getting too thick and the rice not cooked enough. I finally was able to have a good texture and it's very yummy. Thanks Mandy :) Made for I Recommend tag game
