It's National Coffee Day and, honestly, what's better than a delicious cup of cafecito in the morning? 

I'll tell you what: coffee desserts! These 5 Latin coffee desserts, to be exact. Bake one of these today to have with your morning cup or for that perfect ending to a great dinner. I honestly can't decide which is better: the mocha coconut rice pudding (chocolate arroz con leche? Yes, please!), dulce de leche espresso coffee cake (caramel and coffe for breakfast?), Mexican flan de cafe (Why not?), Colombian pastel de cafe y banana (No, actually, this is breakfast!) or the pumpkin spice latte cupcakes. Actually, I might just make them all!

Mocha Coconut Rice Pudding

Ingredients: 3/4 cup Madagascar pink rice (or any brown or black rice), one 14 ounce can of coconut milk, 2 cups water, 2 cinnamon sticks, pinch of sea salt, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons finely ground dark roast coffee, 3 tablespoons maple syrup, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, 1 cup raspberries or sliced strawberries for garnish-optional

1. Put the rice and coconut milk in a medium size saucepan. Add the cinnamon sticks and salt and stir to combine.

2. Bring to a boil over high heat, the lower the heat, stir in the cocoa powder and coffee, and simmer for about 20 minutes (or another 10-20 minutes longer for brown or black rice) until all of the liquid is absorbed.

3. Stir in the maple syrup and vanilla extract. Serve immediately, garnished with the berries, if you like.

4. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator (and are quite delicious cold).
