Coconut Brown Rice Pudding

I have been wanting to make rice pudding for a while.  I found a recipe a while back on that I really enjoyed.  I have no idea what that recipe was, nor can I find it again. And that doesn't much matter, because after weeks of complaining about allergies, it's been suggested I may have a lactose sensitivity, so I'm off dairy products for the next 2 weeks to figure it out.  (It's been 36 hours, and I miss cheese oh so much already!)

Yesterday afternoon I finally got around to using my new rice cooker and decided I should make enough extra to make some pudding.  Then I remembered: pudding's made with milk.  whomp whomp 

When I hit the grocery store today, I decided to dabble in alternative "milks."  I picked up some vanilla almond milk and some regular coconut milk.  I tasted both and decided the coconut would be nice for the pudding.  It has a very subtle coconut flavor, without being overbearing.  So I got to work and created this yummy Coconut Brown Rice Pudding.  Enjoy!
