2/3 Cup Aborio Rice (Or Risotto Rice)
2 Cups Cold Water
1 1/2 Cup Coconut Milk
2 Tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (Or Cacao Powder For Additional Health Benefits)
1 Tbsp MRM Raw Sprouted Black Rice Superfood Powder
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Organic Maple Syrup
Fresh Berries (optional)
Vanilla Whipped Cream (optional)
Place the rice and water in a pot and bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low and gently simmer for eight minutes, stirring frequently.
Whisk the cocoa powder, black rice powder, and cinnamon into the coconut milk and then add to the pot and mix. Now add the maple syrup and cook for another eight minutes, stirring frequently.
When the liquid has thickened sufficiently taste to see if the rice is cooked. At this stage it should be thick with a loose, creamy texture, and thoroughly cooked. If it needs a little longer add a small splash of coconut milk and continue to cook until ready. Remove from the heat and transfer to the fridge to cool slightly.
When ready to serve transfer to a glass or bowl and garnish as desired. Fresh berries add a nice sharpness to the creamy chocolate pudding.
