"This easy and delicious simple rice pudding is made with all organic ingredients, loaded with coconut milk, vanilla, and nutmeg for such a comforting treat! For a vegan version, omit the eggs, and use almond milk in place of the dairy and replace butter with vegan buttery sticks. Both versions are quite delicious! Just make sure to let the pudding cool to room temperature to let pudding set and then place in refrigerator to chill for at least 3 hours. Enjoy!"

  1. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, about 20 minutes.
  2. Combine rice, coconut milk, sugar, and salt in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until pudding is thick and creamy, 18 to 20 minutes. Stir milk and eggs into pudding, stirring constantly to keep pudding from sticking, at least 2 minutes.
  3. Remove pudding from heat and stir butter, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg into pudding until thoroughly mixed. Fold peaches and raisins into pudding.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I use raw sugar which gives the pudding a slight tan color. Replace raw sugar with 1 cup of white sugar if you prefer the white texture of the pudding. You can even use agave nectar in place of sugar for a healthier alternative if the darker color appeals to you. Also omit the spices and sprinkle on top of served pudding instead and even use all coconut milk or even almond milk if you like. You can also add strawberries, blueberries, and even mango for a variety of fruit toppings!
  • Pudding can also be served cold. Refrigerate pudding for 3 hours and fold in fruit before serving.

Very easy to make. I cut the sugar and butter in half, it was still very rich and plenty sweet. I reduced nutmeg to half a teaspoon and the spices were perfect for me, but I like my recipes a bit heavy on cinnamon, but it does overpower the coconut taste a bit. I slowly added one cup of the hot rice mixture to the eggs, and then added the eggs/rice mix back into the main dish. I will make this again. Thanks

One caution! If you want the coconut flavor ADD THE CINNAMON TO TASTE! Same goes for the nutmeg and vanilla. The only change I made was scaling back the nutmeg to about 1/2 tsp but I wished it had coconut flavor.

This rice pudding is amazing. I had to make some changes because I didn't have some of the ingredients. I didn't have whole milk (or cream), so I left out the sugar and added a can of sweetened condensed milk at the beginning and probably about 1/2 c. of 1% milk at the end of the cooking time. I also added a little bit more coconut milk, but not much and some chopped Pink Lady apples. I didn't try it, but I'd be willing to bet that some chopped cinnamon and sugar almonds would make an amazing addition as well.
