I’m someone who loves rice and risotto is a wonderful way to prepare rice. The creamy rice is delicious as a side dish with sauteed mushrooms, onions and garlic.

But it’s also wonderfully tasty when you use soy and coconut milk, add some fruit, cinnamon, and vanilla to make it for breakfast. This creamy and flavorful breakfast is simple and easy.

You can put it in the crock-pot overnight, or just make it up ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator. It’s sure to be a meal that everyone will love.

    is this made with canned coconut milk or carton coconut milk? there’s such a nutritional difference, i don’t want to use the wrong one and i happen to have both on hand!

      I used a carton, and I didn’t notice it at first, but you’re right – there’s a huge difference!
