Yield: 2 cups (4 servings)

Kheer, a creamy rice pudding delicately flavored with sweet spices and golden raisins, is my favorite Indian dessert. The traditional rice and milk are replaced with coconut in this raw recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup young coconut meat (from 2 coconuts)
  • 3/4 cup coconut water
  • 1/4 cup light agave syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded dried coconut
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons golden raisins, soaked for 10 minutes, drained, and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon raw pistachios (unsoaked), chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon rose water (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom

Equipment

  • cutting board
  • cleaver
  • large spoon
  • measuring cups and spoons
  • blender
  • rubber spatula
  • small mixing bowl

Put the coconut meat, coconut water, and agave syrup in a blender and process until very smooth. Stop occasionally to scrape down the sides of the blender jar with a rubber spatula. Transfer the mixture to a small mixing bowl and add the dried coconut, raisins, pistachios, rosewater, and cardamom. Stir with a rubber spatula to combine. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.

Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, Kheer will keep for 3 days.

I love mango smoothies, I have come up with quite a neubmr of mango smoothie recipes myself!  I haven’t tried coconut milk on it though.  I find it too heavy on dishes, so I never really thought of trying it here especially when it’s going to be raw.  But then again, I love mango smoothies so much that I would like to give this a try, lol!  Let’s see what will happen, good luck to my tummy, lol!
