This vibrant side dish was inspired by a craving for coconut rice, but is a bit more on the sweeter side and has a pop of color. It's sweet and sticky, as coconut rice should be, with a bit of fruity flavor from the dragonfruit. Serve topped with black sesame seeds, an additional squeeze of lime juice, and sliced avocado.

Vibrant Dragonfruit Coconut Rice [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

High Carb Vegan Vegan


  • 3/4 can coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cups jasmine rice
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 2  cup water
  • 1/2 packet defrosted pink dragonfruit
  • 1/2 squeeze lime
  • Avocado and black sesame seeds, for garnish (optional)


  1. In a bowl combine the coconut milk, lime, pineapple juice, and sea salt. If you don’t have pineapple juice simply press the fresh pineapple through a sieve and extract the juice.
  2. In a pot over high heat add 2 cups of water and the pineapple coconut mixture. Once boiling add rice, then reduce to a simmer leaving the lid on top. Leave covered without peaking, and then gently fluff with a fork and toss in the room temperature pink dragonfruit. Top with a fresh squeeze of lime. (For more of a pink color, toss in additional defrosted pink dragonfruit.)
