Serves 4


  • Nespresso Affogato
  • Vanilio – 1 capsule espresso per serving
  • 150g medium grain rice (calrose)
  • 250ml full fat milk
  • 250ml coconut milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla paste OR 1 tsp vanilla essence (extract)
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Crispy, Bloody Delicious, Wonton Wrappers
  • 8 Wonton Pastries (I use Formosa)
  • knob of butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • 100g shredded coconut
  • 150g chocolate buttons


  1. Preheat oven to 200.
  2. Combine the rice, milk, coconut milk, vanilla and 100ml water in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, simmer, stirring every now and then from the bottom of the pan.
  3. Now is a really good time to put Michael Jackson’s ‘Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough’ on it’s the perfect rice pudding stirring choon!
  4. Meanwhile, place the wonton wrappers on a baking tray, brush with the melted butter, sprinkle over the icing sugar and bake until golden and crispy – about 2 minutes, so keep an eye on them.  Remove and set aside.
  5. Sprinkle the coconut into a large non-stick frying pan, keep tossing and dry roast over a medium heat until golden and smelling delicious. Remove from heat and set aside.
  6. Change to Billy Jean - Keep stirring and dancing.
  7. Tumble the chocolate into a heat proof bowl.  Pop in the microwave and cook & stir in bursts of 30 seconds until completely melted.  Stir and remove.
  8. Take a wonton wrapper, dip one end into the melted chocolate, sprinkle with coconut and pop aside to set.
  9. Check the rice, by pressing a grain between your thumb and finger, if tender add the sugar and spice, mix well.  Cook until the pudding is luscious, thick and syrupy (another 2 – 3 minutes).
  10. Pop spoonfuls into a dish or espresso cup, pour over Nespresso Vanillio and enjoy with a sweet crispy wonton pastry.
