Dairy-Free Coconut Rice Pudding


You'll love this dairy-free rice pudding if you love the smell and taste of coconut. And if dairy products upset your stomach, this is a lovely healthy alternative to using milk or cream. Sprinkle with cinnamon, add fruit or nuts, or serve plain.

  • 4 cups canned coconut milk, shaken

  • ¼ cup cane sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup long grain white rice


  1. Combine coconut milk, sugar, and vanilla extract in a medium pot and stir until combined. Add rice and bring to a boil over medium heat, about 5 minutes. Cook, gently stirring, until rice has softened and mixture has a slightly soupy but not too drippy consistency, about 20 minutes.

  2. Spoon into small serving dishes. Serve warm or place in refrigerator to chill.


If you are short on coconut milk, you can always use a bit of milk or cream to make up for it. Or just be sure to pick up 3 cans of coconut milk.

If your pudding is too thick it won't taste as good. If this happens, heat in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds.
