Strawberry Risotto

Strawberry Risotto: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

After the success of my first dessert risotto, Coffee Risotto, I knew I wanted to make some more. And before I knew it, one popped up on my Pinterest feed.

This dessert risotto is filled with sweet strawberries and taste delicious warm or cold. In fact my husband loved it warm, but said the next night it tasted even better cold.

Strawberry Risotto
Ingredients:
6 cups 2% milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons unsalted butter
1 cup arborio rice
zest and juice of 1 orange
1 cup canned coconut milk
1 quart strawberries, diced

Directions:
In a medium pot stir together the milk, sugar and vanilla. Heat over medium heat, stirring often until the mixture just begins to simmer. Reduce the heat to low, cover and keep hot.

In a large pot, over medium heat, melt the butter. Add in the rice and cook, stirring often, until toasted and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add in the orange zest and juice and cook, stirring constantly, until the liquid has been absorbed, about 1-2 minutes. Add in 1 cup of the milk mixture and stir constantly until almost all of the liquid has been absorbed, about 3-5 minutes. Repeat this process until all of the milk has been incorporated and the rice is thick and creamy. This process will take about 30 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the coconut milk. Let sit for 5 minutes. Stir in the diced strawberries and then serve.

Enjoy!!!
