Koko Rice
Written by Staff   


This recipe is simple and yummy!

  • 1 Cup Calrose Rice
  • 4 Cups Water
  • 1 Can Coconut Milk
  • 5 Table Spoons Grated Koko Samoa
  • Granulated White Sugar

Add rice and water in a sauce pan.  Bring the water to a boil.  After the water reaches a boil reduce the heat to low, cover, and let the rice cook for 20 min. (watch carefully as the water may boil over.)   After 20 min.  Turn off heat, add coconut milk, koko Samoa, and Sugar to taste (You'll probably need a lot of sugar.) then stir and serve hot with butter and bread or just by itself.


If you don't have koko Samoa you can use cocoa powder.  You obviously won't get that unmistakeable koko Samoa flavor. 
If you don't have calrose rice you can use any white rice.

This recipe also works with hot coco mix.  But, instead of using 5 tablespoons koko Samoa, I added 10 Tablespoons of hot coco mix and 3 Tablespoons sugar.  It tasted good but if you can get koko Samoa don't waste your time with hot coco mix.
