    Ally928's Note:

    I had coconut rice at The Rum Jungle in Las Vegas a few years ago and I've been trying to duplicate it ever since. I still haven't gotten it quite like theirs, but I've made it enough times to figure out what works best. Most recipes use coconut milk, but I felt like it made the rice too sticky and heavy, so I use coconut water. You can usually find this with other exotic fruit juices such as guava and mango and it comes in a can with a pop top like soda. It also usually contains pulp (or "jelly"); this adds a nice flavor.

      I felt this was bland but that was most likely because my coconut water did not come with pulp, so it had no flavor. I caught some of the sweetness, but that was about it. Back to regular coconut rice for me until I can find coconut water with pulp.

      I used 1 cup coconut water, there was no pulp in the water and 3/4 cup milk and 2 individual packets of Splenda.A dash of chinese 5 spice powder. Perhaps that is what you have been missing. The five spice powder absorbes into the milk. I like rice and I like this.
