{BabyFoodie} Coconut Rice Cereal

I adore all variations of coconut rice, coconut custard and rice pudding.  There's only three ingredients in this sweet and nutritious baby cereal:  coconut milk, rice cereal, and raisins.  Substitute any grain your baby prefers, or make a grain-free "custard" with egg or banana as a substitute.  In case you missed it in another {BabyFoodie} post, raisins are high in iron and coconut is a medium chain fatty acid (digests and assimilates easily) and the lauric acid is as close as you can get to human breast-milk.


To make:

  • Fill a small pot or  pan with 1/2" water.  Add 1-2 Tablespoons raisins and bring to a boil.  
  • Add 2 Tablespoons rice cereal, reduce heat to medium-low and continue stirring.  If cereal needs more liquid, add 2 Tablespoons coconut milk and continue cooking.  If cereal is watery, continue cooking adding more rice cereal as needed, until desired consistency is achieved before adding the coconut milk.  (Total cook time is around 10 minutes).  
  • Blend  to puree the raisins, using coconut milk to thin as needed.
