My husband and children loved this!!! Have made other ones and never really went over as well! I had a can of fat-free coconut milk on hand so I used that and just added enough water to make the needed two cups. I also added a little more lime juice and a little zest. Will keep this one on hand.

What a great recipe! It had a wonderful, light flavor that went perfectly with our supper of jerk chicken, mango salsa and black beans. Who knew making coconut milk was so easy? I made a half recipe and it did make about 3-4 servings. It cooked up perfectly--nice and fluffy. So glad I chose this recipe to make! I will definitely make again. Edited to add: Made again and, being lazy, used canned coconut milk. I definitely DO NOT recommend this. From now on, I will always make my own milk as it made the dish sweeter. Also, this last time was very salty, so note to self, use less salt!

I made this and added toasted pecans and coconut prior to serving. I will add more lime juice next time and more red pepper flakes for a kick

wonderful recipe, made it all in my rice cooker and added a hot chile pepper to it just to balance the sweet/tart with a hint of heat.

I hate to admit this but this recipe is better then mine LOL I added some lime zest to the mix. I think next time I will toast up some of the leftover coconut and toss that in last minute . Now to find a recipe to use the coconut. LOL It was easy to make and turned out perfectly. Made as a side with Broiled Pineapple With Rum Sauce#275828 and Jamaican Jerk Pork#373129 Done for ZWT 5 Caribbean region for team Zaar Chow Hounds

Awesome!!!! I didn't have quite enough coconut to make the full amount so I added some coconut water that I had on hand to make the 2c. The flavor was very light and delicate. I followed the instructions and was rewarded by not burning the rice (always a problem for me haha). Perfect light and fluffy and I made this with Mexican Lime Chicken *21935. I will def. be making this again and again. Thanks!!!
