Nutritional values

The mix of coconut milk and rice tastes great and makes you feel full; the fruit salad on top provides a thick portion of vitamins. This rice pudding variant is also ideal for children with lactose intolerance: coconut milk contains no lactose.

If you have to transport the rice: You can press it still warm into a ring form. Turn it over only after it has cooled down and arrange the fruit salad in the middle. Also: You can of course also use wholemeal rice, but then the cooking time is doubled! And you may need to add a little more liquid.
