Plain rice pudding gets a tropical, flavorful makeover with a Matcha Coconut Rice Pudding. Basmati rice is cooked until creamy in sweet coconut milk and matcha powder (made from green tea leaves) adds an extra burst of natural flavor.


  • 1 cup Royal Basmati Rice
  • 4 cups beverage-style coconut milk
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ½ cup canned coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon matcha powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced
  • ½ cup toasted flaked coconut


  1. In a medium saucepan combine rice and 2 cups water. Place over high heat, bring to a boil, and boil 5 minutes or until water has evaporated.
  2. Stir in coconut milk, sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, stirring occasionally, until rice is very tender and creamy, 40-45 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in canned coconut milk, matcha, and vanilla. Serve topped with strawberries and coconut.
