Orangecicle Parfait

Serves 4

1/2 cup filtered water
1/3 cup organic black (forbidden) rice
4 oz. canned light organic coconut milk
1/4 tsp. organic ground cardamom
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 organic vanilla bean, sliced in half
24 oz. organic Greek yogurt
4 organic tangerines


  1. Combine water and rice in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Cover and cook until the rice has absorbed all the water. The rice should be cooked yet still somewhat firm.
  2. Bring the coconut milk to a boil in another medium saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, add vanilla bean, cardamom, and salt. Stir until combined. Add the rice to the pan with the seasoned coconut milk, return to a gentle simmer, cover and cook until the rice softens and absorbs almost all the liquid. Remove the vanilla bean and chill the rice.
  3. Among 4 glasses, layer half of the rice, half the yogurt, and half the tangerines. Repeat, using the remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
