Forbidden Rice Coconut Pudding

A while ago, I did a review for the company Hungry Globetrotter. In the box, I received a product called Coconut Kaya. Initially, I had no clue what I wanted to do with it, so I used it like a jam on bread. This product is seriously DELICIOUS if you love coconut flavor. It’s sweet […]
