1 cup arborio rice
2 cans coconut milk (not reduced fat)
2 cups milk*
1/2 cup brown sugar*
zest of 1/2 lime
1/4 tsp salt
lime wedges (optional)
In a slow cooker, mix the following: rice, coconut milk, milk, brown sugar, and lime zest. Cook on medium for about 2 hrs, or until the rice has fully plumped up and the sauce has thickened considerably.
Serve warm with a generous heap of toasted coconut on top, and garnish with lime wedge if desired.
*for my vegan friends: substitute soy or almond milk for dairy, and you could use any vegan sweetener of your choice (turbinado sugar, maple syrup, brown rice syrup, etc.).
