- 1 cup coconut water
- 4 cups coconut milk (reserve 1 cup)*
- 1/2 – 3/4 cup organic whole sugar (per desired sweetness)

Combine rice, coconut water, 3 cups of the coconut milk, sugar and coconut oil in a 4-5 quart sauce pan. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to a simmer for about 15-25 minutes until rice is tender.
While rice is simmering soak the shredded coconut in 1/2 cup of the remaining coconut milk. Drain the pineapple and mandarin oranges and set aside.
When rice is tender remove pan from heat. Add all the remaining ingredients and stir well. Place in a bowl or glass pan and sprinkle a little extra cinnamon on top if desired.
Serve with whipped cream or pour a little extra coconut milk on top before serving.
