This is the easiest rice pudding you will ever make, and quite possibly, the healthiest. Using brown rice, fresh fruit, natural sweeteners and coconut milk, it truly is as good for you as it is delicious. I like to make a big batch of brown rice and use it for a variety of meals throughout the week: mixed with tomato and meat sauce, as a salad base, to thicken soups, and Audrey’s latest favorite, this perfect breakfast pudding.

Put rice and water into a small pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover pot and simmer until liquid is completely absorbed and rice is just tender, about 40 minutes. Set covered pot aside off of the heat for 10 minutes then uncover and fluff rice with a fork.
