Vanilla Bean Rice Pudding

By Ange's Table

Good morning.  Happy Friday to you.  Do you have any plans for the weekend?

I am happy to say I will be going to the campground, and staying a few extra days to enjoy some time with a great friend!

Since it is the summer, I try to not use the oven too often.  It makes the house so warm.  Some days the AC has a hard enough time keeping the house comfy.  I don’t want to add to it.  But just because its hot out, doesn’t mean I won’t want to have desert after dinner.  Rice Pudding is a great treat to make, because it is done on the stove top.  One pot, and a cool kitchen?  I’m in.

Usually when we make rice pudding, we use left over rice.  You can make the rice fresh for this recipe, but I feel that the rice grains keep their shape better using day old rice.

Vanilla Bean Rice Pudding

  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 3 cups oat milk
  • 1 vanilla bean, halved and scraped of seeds
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 Tbsp coconut sugar

Combine all ingredients in a medium pot. 

Cook over medium-low heat.  Be careful not to boil. 

Stir frequently, until the rice soaks up the milk, and becomes creamy.

Serve with extra cinnamon if desired.


You can flavor the rice pudding so many ways.  What is your favorite?
