A dairy-free alternative to rice pudding.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 800 ml coconut milk, full fat
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup raisins (optional)
  • 1 sprinkle of Cinnamon, fresh fruit or toasted coconut flakes as topping (optional)
  • 1 cup arborio rice


  1. Put the rice and coconut milk in a medium saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring continuously.
  2. Reduce the heat, add the sugar and vanilla extract, and simmer while stirring.
  3. Once the grains of rice have become swollen and soft the rice pudding is ready. If you are using the raisins then add them now.
