"In celebration of Whole Grains Month, I created this dish with the intentions that it can be enjoyed as a hot or cold dessert. I love the addition of black currants because they really plump up while simmering in the coconut milk and add some subtle sweetness as opposed to raisins that can be very sweet. Feel free to add chocolate chips in substitution of the black currants and a little whipped cream!"
