Coconut Rice

Since we were introduced to cracking a coconut we wanted to find a recipe that had coconut!

Our favorite we found was Coconut Rice!

In order to prepare this recipe we had to use the stove most of the time, but the children took part in this as much as they could!

They measured out the coconut oil…..



Measured out the proper amount of rice…..



Added salt….

After adding all the ingredients into the pot we set a timer on for 20 minutes and waited in our classroom until our rice was ready….






























Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Yield: Six ½-cup servings


1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 cup jasmine rice

1 1/2 cups Silk Pure Coconut Original Coconut Milk

Learning Goals Achieved:

Measurement. The student directly compares the attributes of length, area, weight/mass, capacity, and/or relative temperature. The student uses comparative language to solve problems and answer questions. The student is expected to:


(A)compare two containers according to capacity (holds more, holds less, or holds the same); compare two objects according to weight/mass (heavier than, lighter than or equal to);

  • Underlying process and mathematical tools. The student applies kindergarten mathematics to solve problems connected to everyday experiences and activities in and outside school. (Identifying mathematics in everyday situations)
