Coconut Rice Pudding

"Here's another rich and delicious dessert form Executive Chef Willi Pimgruber of the Hyatt Dorado Beach Hotel in Puerto Rico that is is sure to please rice pudding lovers. Be sure to use short grain rice in this recipe because it cooks to a creamier consistency. Short grain rice is available as Arborio or Calrose rice." from "Tropic Cooking" by Joyce LaFray Young -
