Pineapple Rice Pudding

Pineapple Rice Pudding w/ toasted coconut
Don't you just love it when you find a recipe and you have all the ingredients you need in your cupboard? My sister dropped off her Crock Pot Slowcooker recipe book and I was able to browse through and found this recipe for Pineapple Rice Pudding. It sounded divine so I had to try! I used brown jasmine rice instead of the arborio rice that it called for. Also found the actual recipe online so here it is and try it in your slow cooker for a nice warm dessert today!
