3 – Cups of Brown Basmati Rice Cooked with 3 tablespoons of Vanilla Extract.
1 – Whole Coconut – Meat Removed and Grated or Shredded
3 – Cups of Unsweetened Soy Milk or any other none dairy milk.

1/2 – Cup of Pumpkin Seeds – Unsalted
1 – Cup of Sliced Almonds – Unsalted
1/3 – Cup of Vanilla Extract – Use this at the very end of the recipe.
Place the cooked brown rice and the grated coconut in a large pan and add enough water to cover plus 1/2 inch more water. Bring to a boil and let boil down until water comes to just about the top of the rice, now add the milk, agave nectar, almond slices, pumpkin seeds, and 1/3 cup vanilla extract and stir constantly until everything is incorporated into the rice and well distributed.
Let come to a full boil and while stirring (don’t let it burn – keep stirring) add enough brown rice flour to thicken the pudding.
When it starts to thicken shut off the heat… and pour in a large pan and let cool in the frig.
When cold slice and garnish with banana slices.
