Brown Rice Pudding Recipe

I found my new favorite comfort dessert: brown rice pudding. I stumbled upon this recipe over on Weelicious— I wish I had known about this site when I was making baby food for my daughter Zoe.

We always have brown rice on hand, so this is the perfect dessert to make if you’ve got a sweet tooth but no sweet treats in your kitchen. And if you have leftover brown rice, now you don’t have to waste it. Zoe absolutely loved this as a dessert and a quick afternoon snack. I even got the husband approval! I hope you enjoy this quick and healthy dessert.

Brown Rice Pudding

2 cups cooked brown rice *
1 cup vanilla soy milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cinnamon stick (or 1/2 tsp cinnamon)
3 tbsp honey

Mix all of the ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat for about ten minutes (the rice should be thick). Let the rice pudding cool in bowls and serve. This treat tastes good chilled in the fridge too. Garnish with sliced almonds and raisins for an extra healthy addition.

*I used one 10 oz Trader Joe’s Brown Rice frozen pack instead of 2 cups of rice.

    Oh wow! Never thought of doing that! My mom always made arroz con leche, a Spanish dessert, basically rice pudding but with a sugar rock from El Salvador or not sure from where. Anyhow, since I’ve been on a healthy track of trying to eat better choices, giving up my sweets has been a bummer but after seeing this, not anylonger!! 🙂 Thanks for the receipe! 🙂

      Arroz con leche sounds yummy. I think it’s great to list out what your favorite meals are and then find out how to make a healthy version of it that still tastes sensational. I’m a carb lover, so I am on the hunt for killer mac and cheese. I heard you can make a cauliflower version of it, so I may have to try that out. 🙂
