The recipe came from the Superfood Snacks Cookbook by Julie Morris.

I absolutely love the fact it’s packed full of healthy ingredients. I’m all for healthy alternatives to puddings!
Scary Black Rice Pudding Black rice, known as forbidden rice is high in nutritional value. It’s a good source of iron, calcium & zinc. It’s also bursting with antioxidants.

How’s that for a pudding?!

Scary Black Rice Pudding

Method

1. In a large saucepan, combine the rice with the almond milk, coconut water, maple sugar and vanilla extract and bring to the boil.

2. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 40 minutes, stirring frequently until the mixture has thickened. (This stage took me much longer than 40 mins so be patient).

3. Combine the tinned coconut milk and maca powder in a medium bowl and whisk until fully incorporated.

4. Add the mixture to the rice, bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes longer, stirring occasionally until the rice is tender and the mixture creamy.

5. Remove from the heat, let cool to room temp, then refrigerate the pudding until it is well chilled.

The recipe suggests serve chilled with toasted coconut flakes on top. However I think I prefered it served hot.
