Tropical Island Coconut Rice

Thursday, 30 June 2016

If you're like me and love your rice fluffy, and enjoy the thought of eating this beauty on a tropical island whilst getting a foot massage then I think you'll love my coconut rice recipe!

I'm constantly tweaking my recipes to find that perfect mouthful of yumm but I keep coming back to these 4 ingredients and portions. Would love to hear your thoughts as well ladies.

Serves 6-8 unless you can't help yourself, then it may only be 3 or 4


  • 3 cups rice - rinsed well with cold water 
  • (I usually use medium grain rice, however jasmine rice is lovely as well)
  • 3 cups cold water
  • 1 cup coconut cream 
  • (You can buy 275ml cans so you're not wasting the left over from the 400ml cans)
  • 3cm piece ginger, peeled and sliced

Method (the easy bit)

Combine all ingredients in a large pot over high heat. Bring to the boil, stirring occasionally. Be sure it's not sticking to the bottom. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered for 10 minutes. Quickly taste your yummy rice because lets face it, you're super hungry right now. Stand, covered, for 10 minutes.
Serve - One for you, two for me. Don't forget to discard the ginger, unless you like the crunch.

Enjoy beautiful friends!

With love


Bowling Alley fun!

Rainy days can be tough with little monkeys. The kids go wild and we adults can feel imprisoned in our own home. So this afternoon I left the decision making in my fiancé's hands. To the bowling alley we go!!! PERFECT.
