Easy Cranberry Coconut Rice Cereal #LoveEveryMinute

I love rice pudding. I used to love eat leftover rice mixed with a bit of milk, raisins and sugar for a treat after dinner. Ok, so that’s not exactly rice pudding, but it’s close enough right? And definitely quick and easy. When I was younger though, I tended to load up the sugar. Not exactly healthy, right?

Now that I’m a “grown up” I still enjoy rice pudding but I need to find a way to make it a little healthier, and a little easier too. It’s not like I can just go to the refrigerator and grab the leftover rice that my mom made.

Now there is Minute® Ready to Service Rice. In less than 5 minutes, I can have a delicious breakfast or snack made from one of my favorite staples.

Easy Cranberry Coconut Rice Cereal


1 cup Minute® Ready to Serve Rice (Brown Rice)
1/4-1/3 cup Almond Coconut Milk
1-2 tbsp dried cranberries
1 tbsp maple syrup for sweetness (if desired)

Prepare Minute® Ready to Serve Rice according to directions. Add Almond Coconut Milk to desired consistency. Combine cranberries and maple syrup if desired (this depends usually on how sweet your coconut milk is, and if you want a more dessert like dish)  ENJOY IMMEDIATELY.

Substitution ideas include different dried fruits such as raisins, cherries. You could also include dates or nuts for a nice texture and flavor. The possibilities are endless.
