recipe ingredients

What you need for this recipe

Old-fashioned rice pudding is traditionally made with whole milk, but my experimental taste buds opted for added coconut milk. The subtle coconut flavor makes a difference and is incredible. Worth a try! 😉

  1. rice – Basmati rice is a healthier option with a more neutral flavor as it is low in fat, sodium and cholesterol. Generally any rice will work for this recipe but will vary in consistency and texture.
  2. milk – I used regular milk and half a cup of coconut milk for a smoother, creamier flavor.
  3. flavor – Besides salt and sugar, vanilla extract was added to enhance the flavor of the pudding. Spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom complement the homemade rice pudding.
  4. fruit – I recommend adding the fruit at the end so it doesn’t get soggy. My favorite additions are chunks of raisins, pineapple and mango, but you can add whatever fruit you like.
