Dairy Free Rice Pudding GF

Dairy Free Rice Pudding

Do you like rice pudding? For me, it brings back cosy, wonderful memories of childhood and dark Winter's nights which are definitely on the horizon now. Rice pudding has always been a great favourite of mine so I decided to make a dairy free version using almond milk. This is much healthier than the one my grandma used to make. Her recipe included dotting huge dollops of butter all over the top before it went into the oven - not that it wasn't amazingly delicious at the time.

Dairy Free and Vegan Rice Pudding

Rice Pudding GF

115 g pudding rice
40 g or 2 heaped tablespoons coconut palm sugar
2 pints almond milk
grated or ground nutmeg

You will need to use a dish able to hold at least 2 pints of liquid. This recipe serves 4 to 6 or 2 very hungry people! Set the oven to 150°C.

Pudding Rice and Coconut Palm Sugar

Measure out the rice and sugar.  Pour the almond milk into a pan, add the coconut sugar and heat very gently until the sugar is dissolved.

Warming milk

Tip the rice into the dish and carefully pour the warmed milk over the top.

Dairy Free Rice Pudding

Sprinkle the top with a generous amount of nutmeg.

Place in the middle of the warmed oven. Let it cook for half an hour then take it out.

Cooking the Rice Pudding
Give it a stir.

Put it back into the oven for another 60 to 90 minutes or until it is cooked. Serve with extra almond milk and a spoonful of jam.

  1. Mmmm this looks so tasty. I could definitely eat it for breakfast :) I'm thinking another hearty grain would be good too...maybe barley?

    1. Thank you :) You probably could try it with barley but sadly, I can't because it's not gluten free :(

      Oh and I think rice pudding for breakfast would be just perfect!

  2. This looks awesome! My sister and I were just talking about rice pudding. I didn't realize it was so simple (I was picturing risotto-style preparation). Now that it's finally starting to get chilly around here, I'm excited to try this. (Though I'm also in the market for a pumpkin rice pudding recipe...)

    1. Thank you Molly, pumpkin rice pudding sounds a little different..might be a lovely option..
