  • 1/4 cup Forbidden Rice 
  • 2 cups Coconut Milk
  • 2 cups Water
  • 4 Tbsp Maple Syrup, divided
  • 1 Mango, diced
  • 1/16 tsp Cayenne 


  1. In medium sauce pan add Forbidden Rice, Coconut Milk, Water and 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup, bring to a boil and then drop down to a simmer. Cook for 30-40 minutes until Forbidden Rice is tender. This will have a soupy consistency. 
  2. While Forbidden Rice is cooking, dice the mango. Place half of the diced mango into a bowl, take the other half of the diced mango and place it into a blender, add 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup and the cayenne. Blend together until completely smooth. Pour over diced mango. 
  3. To plate as a parfait, use a small glass, add forbidden rice pudding, then a layer of the cayenne mango, then repeat the forbidden rice pudding ending with cayenne mango. 
  4. Eat at room temperature, or chilled.
