Coconut Black Rice Pudding

I have to admit it. I’m not a big fan of rice pudding, but when it comes to a coconut-included recipe I just can’t resist.
Some days ago I was out for brunch so I decided to have a Black Rice Pudding dish which I was told that is a traditional Thai dessert, also known as “kao neow dahm”. I had NO idea what that meant, but the thing is that it was truly delicious and in fact it inspired me to make my own recipe at home.
Super easy, gluten-free and veeeery coconut-ty! Great for a quick and healthy breakfast, brunch or even a dessert. Creamy, sweet & fruity. It will surely amaze you and give you a rush of good energy…!
