Old Fashioned Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is the epitome of comfort dessert. This old fashioned rice pudding recipe includes everything you would expect; rice combined with a creamy custard and dusted with cinnamon. Rather than using eggs, however, this stove-top pudding relies on the rice’s starches to absorb the fluid and thicken the pudding. This fact makes this easy pudding recipe one step more adaptable to those adopting a vegan diet. To turn this dessert entirely vegan, consider substituting with coconut, almond or soy milk. The taste will be different, but the creaminess should still linger because of the starches in the rice.

This rice pudding recipe isn’t overly sweetened which makes this an excellent dessert for those with sugar-restricted diets. Despite the cinnamon containing no sugar, it has the capacity to make this dish taste spicy and dessert-like. The nutritional value of cinnamon gives this dessert a healthy halo as well since one teaspoon of cinnamon contains a mixture of calcium, iron, and dietary fiber.
