Dessert is arguably one of the more important meals of the day, so don’t let your lack of money or time get in the way of you enjoying a quality dessert. What makes this risotto recipe so great is that as long as you’ve got rice and milk — regular or coconut for those of you trying to be healthy — you’re only minutes away from satisfying that sweet tooth. No need to go out and buy any ingredients, just open your fridge and use up those leftovers.
