Brown Rice Pudding 
Ingredients:
1 cup short grain brown rice, cooked
½ tsp. salt
1 ½ cups coconut milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tbsp. coconut oil or butter
1 tsp. – 2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup sultana raisins
½ cup dates, chopped
½ cup unsweetened coconut
½ cup walnuts, chopped
(Or other toppings. I just used some sliced almonds. I also used Pumpkin seasoning since I was out of cinnamon. Added a little extra and it was great!)
Stevia, Xylitol, or Agave til sweetened to your taste.

Directions:
•    Cook rice. (Cook to the consistency that you want your pudding to be.)
•    Mix the other ingredients together, pour into the rice, stir, and let simmer. Stir occasionally until it's the consistency you want. I actually added extra milk to make it creamier.
•    Serve with “Cream Sauce” on top.
CREAM SAUCE


Ingredients:
1¼ cup coconut milk¾ cup apple juice
Clearjel or cornstarch--I didn't measure how much I used, but it doesn't take much to thicken it.

1 tsp. lemon juice
Natural Sweetener, to taste

Directions:
•    Mix the first 2 ingredients together.•    Bring to a boil, then add thickener, stirring very quickly with a whisk or fork as you do so.
•    Add lemon juice and coconut oil.
Serve on top of Brown Rice Pudding.
