Vegan Coconut Rice Pudding

{ Vegan Coconut Rice Pudding}

I have always loved rice pudding, but haven’t tried to make my own at home. I’m also one of those people who likes something sweet after every dinner…I am a sweettooth! I was craving rice pudding, but wanted to try a vegan version in the slow cooker with coconut milk and coconut oil. It turned out awesome. I’m excited to have this for dessert all week topped with cinnamon and fresh fruit. Here is a recipe for vegan slow cooker coconut rice pudding!

{ ingredients }

  • 4 cups coconut milk
  • 1 Tbs. coconut oil
  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 1 Tbs. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup organic sugar (you could also try coconut sugar)
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • Cinnamon for topping

{ directions }

  1. Add coconut milk and oil, sugar and vanilla to a slow cooker and whisk together. Stir in rice and cinnamon sticks.
  2. Set slow cooker for high, cover and let sit for 2-2 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  3. When the rice is cooked, but there is still a bit of liquid (it may be gooey), remove the cinnamon sticks and transfer from the slow cooker to a container. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours (or overnight). The longer it sits in the fridge, the better and better it tastes.
  4. Serve topped with toppings of choice: cinnamon, nutmeg, fresh fruit, dried fruit, etc.
  5. Enjoy! Yum!

Makes about 6 servings. 201 calories per serving! 

My favorite is a dash of cinnamon and fresh berries! This is great as a breakfast, snack or dessert!
