This is a very tasty recipe, but it is one of the first rice pudding recipes I've made with so MANY calories!!! The coconut really adds sweetness to the rice pudding, as does the milk. I made the recipe exactly as it was listed, and it seemed overly sweet to me. The next time I'll make the recipe without sugar, or with very little sugar. I'll also try fat free milk and less coconut to reduce the calorie count. But, with these few adjustments, I'm sure that this recipe will be perfect!
