This Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding recipe is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and downright heavenly! Topped with a fresh, saucy, sweet, and mildly tart Raspberry Sauce and garnished with cranberries, red currants, and cinnamon to make this porridge even more special. It's also perfect for breakfast served with cherry compote as featured in my cookbook.

Add the rice, water, and coconut milk to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook over low heat for about 20-25 minutes, stirring frequently, until the rice is tender and the mixture is creamy. Stir in agave syrup and desiccated coconut to taste.
While the rice is cooking, make the raspberry compote. In a small cup, whisk 2-3 tbsp of the water and the cornstarch until well combined. Set aside.
Add the raspberries and the rest of the water to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook until the raspberries are soft and mash them with a fork. Then stir in the cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil for a second time until thickened to desired consistency (Note: it will thicken more as it cools). Add vanilla extract, a squeeze of lemon juice, and sugar to taste.
Serve your creamy rice pudding in bowls or jars and layer it with raspberry compote. Garnish with your favorite fresh fruits and cinnamon as desired.
