Pineapple Coconut Rice Pudding With Saffron #SundaySupper

Coconut rice pudding with pineapple & saffron. Good old-fashioned rice pudding with a touch of the tropics.  I really hit jackpot with this dish and it tastes heavenly!! My Sunday Supper team is doing a “Cooking Low and Slow ” theme this week. Mmmm…. all those flavors enhanced by slow cooking!! I decided to make my coconut rice pudding in the slow cooker for this event  and I thought I would add some pineapple to it.  The combination of sweet pineapple with creamy coconut milk was pure magic! It transformed my lovely coconut rice pudding into a gourmet rice pudding! I added a few strands of saffron to it which gave it nice golden glow and added a subtle flavor which enhanced the coconut rice pudding! Topped with some crunchy toasted coconut the pudding was perfect and  guess what: it tastes better the next day when the pineapple and saffron flavors have soaked in. I may try a couple other fruits but I doubt it will taste as good as this pineapple coconut rice pudding !
