Rice pudding is a dessert that my mom always made me when I was little and growing up in Bulgaria. I really love recreating my childhood treats and making them vegan, and that’s exactly what I did with this vegan rice pudding. I hope you enjoy it!

What you’ll need for the rice pudding

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 5 cups dairy free milk
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

How to make the pudding

  • Start by rinsing and draining the rice. Then add the rice to a large pot. Add the sugar, milk, butter, and vanilla to the rice and stir them together.
  • Turn the stove on high heat until the milk starts to boil. Then reduce the heat to medium. Cover with a lid while the rice pudding is cooking. Stir the rice pudding every 7-10 minutes.
  • Cook the rice for 45-50 minutes. To test if it’s ready, take out a small amount of rice and taste it to make sure that it’s soft and chewy, and not crunchy. *Blow on it first to cool it off before testing it so that you don’t burn yourself!
  • Once the rice has cooked, remove from heat. Most of the liquid will have evaporated, but there should still be a some liquid left. The consistency should be fairly runny. If you like the pudding to be thicker, you can cook the pudding for longer and adjust it to your preference.
  • Once you have removed the rice pudding from the heat, add in the coconut cream. This will make the rice pudding thicker.
  • You can add the cinnamon into the rice pudding and mix it in, or you can leave it out and top each bowl of rice pudding that you serve with a layer of cinnamon (like I have in the photos above).
  • You can enjoy the rice pudding warm or refrigerate it and enjoy it cold. You can store in the fridge for about 5-7 days.
