Puerto Rican Rice Pudding (arroz Con Dulce)

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Raquel Grinnell

The food columnist of our local newspaper attended a Cinco De Mayo party where this delicious pudding was served. She couldn't help but have three servings! Shredded coconut and coconut milk make this recipe tropical and special.

wonderfully delicious...I had a recipe similar but misplaced it and I needed to make some for our church's New Year's Eve party so I found this one and loved the results.
