This one-pot dessert has a short ingredient list, takes just 35 minutes to make, and delivers unique not-too-sweet flavor. A combination of whole milk and coconut milk (an entire can, so you’re not left with pesky dregs) makes for a creamy and rich pudding. The rice is tender but not mushy, and coconut is present but not overwhelming. Any leftovers will keep in the refrigerator in an airtight container for several days, perfect for enjoying hot or cold. Top with chopped mango per the recipe, or branch out and try toasted coconut, your favorite toasted nut, or even granola (breakfast, anyone?).
