Coconut Rice Pudding with Caramelized Apples

4 servings
Preparation 10 min
Cooking 35 min

470 calories per serving 


1/4 tsp ground cardamom   1 g
1/4 cup apple jelly   65 mL
1 cup milk, partly skimmed, 2%   250 mL
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk   250 mL
4 tbsp arborio rice   45 g
2 tbsp grated coconut   10 g
8 tbsp sugar   100 g
2 tbsp water   30 mL
3 1/2 tbsp butter, unsalted   50 g
1/3 cup apple juice   85 mL
2 apples   360 g


  1. Put the cardamom and the apple jelly in a small saucepan. Heat just 1-2 min over low heat to blend the flavours, then portion out the jelly into goblets or transparent cups. Place them in the refrigerator for about 20 min while cooking the rice.
  2. Bring the milk and coconut milk to a boil in a saucepan, then add the rice. Simmer gently, uncovered, until the rice is cooked, about 18-20 min. During the cooking, stir frequently to prevent the grains from sticking together: the mixture will resemble a thick soup. Add the grated coconut, let the mixture cool down a few min, then pour it into the cups over the apple jelly. Put the cups back in the refrigerator.
  3. Melt the sugar with the water in a small saucepan over medium heat and cook until golden, about 2-3 min. Remove the pan from the heat then add the butter and apple juice. Mix well and cook an additional 3 min, with stirring, taking care not to let it boil.
  4. Wash the apples, remove the core and cut into segments. Place the apple segments in a skillet, cover with half of the caramel and cook over medium-low heat 5-6 min, turning them once, until they become translucent. Place them in the cups over the rice pudding, then pour the remaining caramel on top. Serve.


For an even sweeter result, add sugar to the milk.
