Tricolore rice with coconut milk, vanilla, peaches & plums

Standard

There are some things which you can eat at anytime of the day. They are always welcome – be it for bfast, as a snack, or a healthy dessert, be it summer, be it winter. The following is one of them.

My BF has a lot of childhood memories about milky rice. But how to make a healthier version of it and, next to the white refined rice which lost all nutrients on the way, how to replace the cows milk and tons of sugar? Well, this is one alternative to go – and honestly, we like it even better as it’s not only super yummy but also good for us!

What you need
Serves 2
2 cup of cooked Tricolore rice (brown, red & black, ideally organic)
Coconut milk or your favorite non dairy milk
Coconut flakes (optional)
1 vanilla pod or best quality vanilla essence
Raw agave sirup to your liking
Peaches and plums or other nice seasonal fruit

What to do
Cook rice according to instructions. I already had mine from the day before. If you make it just a for this dish you could even cook the rice in coconut milk which will make it even creamier. If it’s precook we out it in a pot and add coconut milk until rice is covered. Add vanilla, coconut flakes and cook it on medium heat so it gets creamy and warm. Add agave sirup and turn off the heat. Chop up the fruit and place it on top. If you like to warm it’s ready to eat. If you prefer it cold, like we did as it’s summer and warm enough cool it for a bit in the fridge.

Enjoy!
Sunshine & love,
