Homemade Rice Pudding

My 6 year old loves to help me make Rice Pudding. She loves it for breakfast, a snack, dessert, or even to bring along for her school lunch.

It is easy to make so I thought I would share our recipe with you.

You will need:

  • 2 cups short grain rice
  • water
  • 2 Liters whole milk (you can use almond milk or coconut milk as a substitute)
  • 3/4 cup raisins (optional)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (we use Xylitol)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon

Put rice in a heavy pot and cover and add just enough water to cover the rice. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring regularly till water is mostly evaporated.

Add the milk and keep stirring and cooking over medium heat. Once it starts to thicken, add the raisins, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon and keep stirring till it is thickened (to a yogurt like consistency).

Serve warm and enjoy.

We like to keep it in the fridge and warm it up when needed. It thickens more once it is cold so you will have to add more milk when you warm it up.

It is a favorite in our home!

  1. Mmm, I love rice pudding. I need to make it now! Have you ever had broken wild rice pudding? To die for!

  2. Mary Beth Elderton says:

    This sounds delicious! I love rice pudding but haven’t had any in years.

  3. I make rice pudding all the time. In fact I made some just two nights ago and my grandson came in last night looking for some. I swear he can smell it when I make it. Anyhow, I make mine in the oven. I mix my ingredients in a bowl, cook my rice on the top of the stove and then mix it all ingredients together when the rice is done. Put it in a greased pan and into the oven. Its sooo good. I use eggs in mine also and no raisins.
    There are many ways to make it I guess.

  4. Looks delicious, Rice Pudding is one of my favourite desserts…unfortunately I’m the only one in our home that likes it so I end up eating the whole thing! Thanks for the recipe!

  5. This looks really good and very thick. I like that.

  6. Great photos and recipe! I’ll have to try this!

  7. I’ve never made rice pudding but judging by your post, it doesn’t seem to difficult to make and for the holidays, it’s a nice “family thing” to do together!

  8. Brenda Penton says:

    I’ve never thought of making my own rice pudding! I have it pinned and I plan on making this! Looks good!

  9. This looks really good. I’m going to give it a try tomorrow. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    • Let me know what you think of it Judy! You do not have to add the raisins, sugar and cinnamon while cooking if you don’t want to…you can always add it as you eat it. It also thickens a lot, so after you have it in the fridge and re-heat it, you will most likely want to add some milk.

  10. Making this now but wondering if 2 liters of milk is the right amount. Only put in 1 so far and that’s a LOT of milk. Am holding off on any more till I see how this turns out.

  11. I love homemade rice dessert and am so happy to have stumbled on your recipe.It sounds delicious with the cinnamon in it.Thanks so much for posting this.

  12. Thank you for the wonderful recipe.
