Have you ever discovered a “new” food, fell in love with it, then ate it so much you got sick of it? Yep, that’s me and this Creamy Coconut Rice, except I’m still waiting to get sick of it!

I make this side dish about once a week, and it’s my 9-year-old’s first request when I ask what he wants for dinner each week!  It’s seriously so easy, so delicious, and pairs well with a ton of different foods!

I have been obsessed with using coconut in recipes for quite some time now.  It all started with this Coconut Curry Chicken.  I never liked coconut as a child, and now I can not get enough!  Funny how that works, isn’t it!?

Ingredients for Creamy Coconut Rice

So, once upon a time I decided to attempt to make coconut rice with nothing but rice, water, and a can of coconut milk.  I had no idea if it would even work since every other coconut rice recipe seems to involve more!  To put it simply, it works amazzzzzingly well!  I call this Creamy Coconut Rice for good reason!

The rice (especially brown rice) may take a little longer to cook than it normally would if you just used water, but be patient.  The end result will be the creamiest rice you could ever imagine!  And it will be loaded with coconut flavor!  Loaded!

I have made this with both reduced fat and regular coconut milk and regular definitely works best.  Of the few brands I have tried, I have had the best results with the Thai Kitchens brand regular coconut milk (this is not a sponsored post, just my own personal experience).

This Creamy Coconut Rice pairs well with all kinds of dishes.  I serve it when I make curries, fish, and anything that has a tropical vibe to it, like this Cuban Spice Marinated Pork!  I also really like it with this Pan Seared Chicken with Creamy Coconut Cilantro Lime Sauce because in my opinion, you can never have too much coconut!
