Hello & Happy Tuesday!!

 

 

 

 

 

I’ll be honest, I’m not a HUGE grain person.. 

 

I eat quinoa sometimes, I love Cous Cous when I have the time and ingredients to make it, but I rarely whip up rice.. 

 

 

Unless it’s Coconut rice!

This dish was inspired by a craving for coconut rice, but something more on the sweeter side and with color.. bright pink to be exact lol.

 


 

 

 

If you’re looking for a sweeter rice that packs healthy fats and packs lots of color.. 

 

You’ll love this Pineapple Coconut Rice infused with Pink Dragonfruit!
