In 2010, 7x7 created a bucket list for San Franciscans that is anything but morbid: “50 Treats to Eat Before You Die.” Coming in at number 15 is Loving Cup’s coconut rice pudding, a family recipe from the eatery’s owners, mother-and-daughter duo Sandy and Liz Hawrylo. With only six ingredients—nonfat milk, Arborio rice, eggs, sugar, salt, and vanilla bean—they whip up fluffy rice pudding in cups, pints, and even 4-pound party tubs.
Their allegiance to simple recipes and natural ingredients doesn't end with their signature pudding, as they also hand-churn toppings into nonfat frozen yogurt that contains neither chemicals nor preservatives. They use as many local products and ingredients as possible, serving cups of joe from Barefoot Coffee out of San Jose and making sure that the cows that provide their organic dairy products have valid California licenses.
