Creamy Peach Rice Pudding Recipe

August 8, 2013

behind-the-curtain-dessert-challengeI’m so excited to be a part of the Behind The Curtain Dessert Challenge. I love themed challenges (duh) and this one is dessert exclusive. This month the challenge is Peaches & Cream. Man, I love peaches.

So, I made a Fresh Peach Pie on Sunday and today it’s long gone. Go figure. I seem to make a lot of peach muffins and I even already have a recipe for a Peach Coffee Cake. I wasn’t feeling a cobbler but I really wanted dessert. So I rummaged through my fridge and decided on rice pudding. You can make this rice pudding with leftover rice which is so easy. The cream part is coconut cream that is found in the canned coconut milk. I use all of the can and it cooks down to be so very creamy!
