Coconut Rice Porridge with Orange Zest & Sultanas by Rabbit Cafe

Here at I AM Co. one of our favourite things to do is enjoy visiting the great cafes around the country. We’re so spoilt to have such an amazing range of cafes serving some hugely delicious, healthy food from a wide variety of cultures. Some of these cafes have been generous enough to share some of our favourites with you….

Rabbit Cafe offers delicious everyday vegetarian and vegan friendly options for breakfast and lunch in an open and friendly cafe space.

Serves 4


  • 240 grams medium grain rice

  • 4 cups water
  • 6 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • zest of an orange
