Health Tip of the Day: Coconut Rice Pudding with Raspberries for Breakfast

Looking for a cereal alternative? Having brown rice for breakfast in this recipe is a delicious break from the norm that helps with weight loss, balances blood sugar, and provides long-lasting energy! 

The rice is sweetened and softened with coconut extract and honey. Vitamin D and calcium are added from the fat-free milk. Finally, the raspberries add fiber for weightloss and tart for your taste buds. 

Here is what you'll need:

1/4 cup instant  brown rice

3/4 cup water

2 tbsp non fat dry milk

1 tsp honey

1/8 tsp coconut extract

1/2 fresh or thawed raspberries

1. Combine the rice and water in a microwavable bowl and stir together. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and make a small vent to release steam. Microwave on high for 5 minutes; then reduce to low for 3 minutes.

2. When finished, remove the plastic wrap and allow the rice to cool for 5 minutes. Stir in dry milk, honey, and coconut extract. Stir in the raspberries and serve.
