The Allergy Free Wife’s Top 5 Favorite Gluten-Free, Nut-Free Rice Pudding Recipes (Dairy-Free Options too!)
Of all the puddings in the world, the variety that has won my heart is rice pudding. After transitioning into a gluten-free diet, I discovered an even deeper love for this sweet treat which is naturally gluten-free, and nut-free! As today is National Rice Pudding Day I wanted to share a few of my favorite rice pudding recipes from around the internet, including some crazy variations on the traditional recipe (hint: pumpkin, black rice, chocolate, and more!). Served hot or cold, plain or with toppings, flavored or classic, rice pudding is one of life’s greatest treasures that also happens to be gluten-free, nut-free, and can be easily made dairy-free. Enjoy!
Classic Rice Pudding Recipe from Seasons and Suppers: Nothing is as comforting as classic rice pudding. This easy recipe uses whole milk, which you can swap with a dairy-free alternative if desired. Top with raisins and cinnamon. Get the recipe here.
Coconut Rice Pudding with Mint Mulberry Compote from Snixy Kitchen: This cool vegan dairy-free coconut rice pudding recipe is perfect for the summer, especially with the addition of a mulberry compote. Get the recipe here.
Chocolate Rice Pudding from Skinny Ms: While I love traditional rice pudding, this healthier chocolate variation uses coconut milk in place of cream, and brown rice instead of white, two very healthy swaps. The addition of cinnamon and chocolate chips seals the deal for me. Delicious! Get the recipe here.
Healthy Pumpkin Spice Rice Pudding from Fit Foodie Finds: Although pumpkin is typically a flavor reserved for Fall, I can’t get enough of it year round! While this recipe calls for almond milk, I substitute it with regular or coconut milk to make it nut-free. Get the recipe here.
Cardamom Infused Black Rice Pudding with Blueberries and Coconut from Earthy Feast: Black rice aka Forbidden Rice is one of my favorite treats. It’s a bit hard to find, but I love the consistency, it’s a bit chewier than traditional brown or white rice. Black rice also has the highest amount of antioxidants, protein, and iron. This simple recipe can be served with fruit for breakfast, or topped with coconut shavings and chocolate chips for dessert. Get the recipe here.
