    Made this. Loved it. Only gave it 4 stars because it's not the prettiest but dang was it tasty. A healthy alternative to baked rice. We used 1/4C honey instead of sugar and home made coconut milk. nom nom nom. It made quite a bit so we will freeze some for the two of us to enjoy later. Bon Appetite!

    I made this Island Rice Pudding as an add on side for both a wedding shower & baby shower & people raved. Only difference - I used cocconut creme instead of milk, soaked my raisins in Bacardi's light rum & drained, & added along with papaya fresh pineapple pieces. 2 very smart tricks you did - one, you used Arborio rice (perfect short grain with creamy results - best rice for rissotto also) 2nd the fresh ginger was KEY, nice move!! Enjoyed immensely!

    I took evelyn/athens tip & substituted coconut milk for the regular milk in this recipe, then pretty much followed the recipe on down, although I did cut it in half, & I used golden raisins! GREAT TASTING RICE PUDDING, what with the nice combo of raisins, coconut & papaya! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for my tagged partner in Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 14]
