Rice Pudding

Recommended Posts

For a few days after going gluten free, I ate rice pudding to fill the huge void left by cereal, but as I've decided to cut out dairy I can no longer eat this. Is it possible to make rice pudding with soy milk, or any other dairy-free alternative?

I'm sure it's possible :)

I make regular pudding with almond milk--but I use Jello pudding mix. The trick to that is using less of the alternate milk--they don't thicken the same as milk does.

I would try just substituting for the milk, using about 1/2 cup less of the alternative and go from there. It took a few trial and errors, but even if the pudding comes out too thin, it still tastes good.

I just happened to come across a recipe for this:

Coconut Milk Rice Pudding

Ingredients:

1 16 oz can of Coconut milk

2 cups of cooked rice (brown or white)

sweetener, your choice, enough to sweeten the milk

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

optional:

vanilla soy milk, to pour on top the bowls of pudding

1/2 cup of coconut, to add to the recipe for variation

Directions:

Heat the coconut milk in a heavy saucepot, over medium heat, until it comes to a simmer. Add sweetener and stir until dissolved. Add the cooked rice and heat through. Simmer until it thickens but don't allow it to become too dry, the rice will continue to absorb the milk as it cools. Take off the heat and stir in the vanilla. Serve warm or chilled.

** We love to eat this warm for breakfast or chilled for dessert. If it becomes too dry just serve with some vanilla soy milk poured on the top.

** Sometimes I add about 1/2 a cup of grated coconut to the recipe as I'm heating up the milk and the sweetener.

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Or you can try something like this:

Tropical Breakfast Risotto

Prep and Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

1 cup Arborio rice (this is the Italian rice risotto is made with)

2 cups water

1 15oz can coconut milk

1 8oz can cubed pineapple (save juice)

Mango always has such wonderful ideas. Rice pudding with vanilla soy milk sounds like it would be great.

I think this diet will make a good cook out of me. I'm actually quite excited about having to forsake many of the processed and pre-prepared foods that I used to eat and having to create decent meals myself. I never would have bothered making my own rice pudding if it wasn't for going gluten (and this case dairy) free.

YES!!! I have the best recipe for rice pudding. I found it when dx w/ IBS...before dx w/ celiac

It's so great! here's the link to the recipe. They have a lot of great recipes here. I made it w/out the tummy fiber stuff, and w/out raisins. It truly is dreamy!! Mmm, I could use a batch myself, now that I think about it. I 1/4thed the recipe tho, cuz I was just making it for me. It's good even a couple days in the fridge, and is yummy hot or cold!

I've used almond milk and coconut milk for making puddings. I am gluten free/dairy free/soy-protein free...

Anyhow, I was wondering what kinds of cereal you used to eat, because there are gluten free choices out there that you might be able to have so you don't have to eat the rice pudding everyday. If you let us know what you used to like, maybe we can all suggest good gluten-free cereals for you.

I use coconut milk in my coconut mango rice pudding and almond milk in my cinnamon rice pudding.

I'm intrigued by these recipes, as I'm also dairy and soy free--and I *love* rice pudding!

Question--what brands of coconut milk do you all use that is gluten-free and dairy free?

I used to eat many types of cereal, changing them frequently. I know that there are gluten-free alternatives, but the selection was very limited in the supermarkets I have checked so far, and they were very small boxes for quite high prices. I have seen some great cinnamon/apple cereals from the gluten-free online stores, but I don't really want to order food that way.

Thanks for the recipes, everyone.
