To make the rice pudding: place the milk and cream in a saucepan. Add the rice, the icing sugar and the split vanilla pod. Bring to the boil and then simmer for 20-25 minutes until all the liquid has been absorbed.
For the fruit salad: peel the pineapple, remove the core and cut into thin slices. Cut the passion fruits in half and scrape out the seeds. Peel the kiwis, cut into quarters and then thin slices. Zest and juice the orange. Place the fruit in a bowl and add the orange zest, juice and a splash of rum.
Serve the tropical fruit salad on top of the rice pudding.
