This rice pudding from our Test Kitchen has a hint of citrus and a mild coconut flavor. Look for unsweetened coconut milk in the Asian aisle of your grocery store.

"This recipe is a keeper! The flavor is mild. Very good! If you are looking for a stronger coconut taste you might try adding coconut extract instead of the vanilla. I made the recipe just as listed and it came out perfect!"
