I am sitting on the couch waiting for Downton Abbey to start. It has been so long since Season 2 ended that I almost forget what happened, but I have been looking forward to this for many, many, many months. I feel bad for my family who is going to have to endure me speaking in my terrible British accent for the next 3 months of Mondays. From this point forward, please read this with a British accent and go fetch yourself a cup of tea. 🙂

Over the holiday, I saw an old friend that cannot eat dairy. In our conversation, he mentioned that dessert is the thing that he misses the most. Almost everything baked has some sort of dairy in it. I got to thinking and had to agree that I use an obscene amount of dairy in my baking. It is really easy to find good vegan baked goods, but it can be hard to satisfy the need for something creamy.

I was flipping through Food & Wine a few days later and found that they were highlighting almond milk. This recipe was included, and I love how it is made in a similar way to risotto. The almond milk is added slowly, absorbing the liquid before you add more. The end result is an incredibly creamy almond milk rice pudding that is simple but satisfying. I added a vanilla bean to mine, but you could just add a splash of vanilla extract if you prefer.

Is rice pudding for dessert or breakfast?

This vegan rice pudding is great after dinner, but I also like to eat it for breakfast. I think it is a great addition to a brunch menu. Top with some preserves or fresh berries and you are good to go. Next time, I am going to try to make it with quinoa and see what happens; As a result, I think it will be a really healthy, protein filled breakfast.

Tips for making Vegan Rice Pudding //

  • You can make this recipe just with almond milk, or a combination of almond and coconut milk. As a result of using coconut milk, the pudding is much creamier.
  • To get really creamy rice pudding, cook it slowly and wait until the almond milk. is almost fully absorbed by the rice before adding more.
  • Using a vanilla bean, will give the best flavor. Although, a good substitute is to add two teaspoons of vanilla extract.
  • I serve these in Weck Tulip Jars. They have a lid for storing.
  • A spoonful of whipped coconut cream sends this dessert over the top.

Excellent! Made it this evening with arborio rice, brown sugar and vanilla extract - served with a spoonful of raspberry jam, as that's how my mom used to top her pudding... Will have the remainder for breakfast!
