This slow-cooked winter comfort dessert is a healthier option for your family that doesn't sacrifice comfort or flavor.
1 cup uncooked long grain rice
5 cups coconut milk, divided
2 tablespoons coconut oil or margarine
1 cup sugar
1 cup dried cranberries or raisins
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Toasted sweetened shredded coconut and additional coconut milk, optional
Place rice in a 3- or 4-qt. slow cooker coated with cooking spray; pour in 4 cups coconut milk. Add coconut oil; distribute evenly over top. Add the next five ingredients. Cook, covered, on low until rice is tender, 4-5 hours, adding enough remaining coconut milk to reach desired consistency. Let stand, uncovered, 10 minutes. Serve warm, with toasted coconut and additional coconut milk if desired.
