How to make healthy rice pudding:

You can make this delicious almond milk recipe three ways. It’s an easy brown rice pudding recipe no matter which way you choose, so don’t worry about being in the kitchen all day. I’ll show you how to make this brown rice pudding in the Instant Pot, Crockpot, and on the stovetop.

Instant Pot:

  • Mix together all the ingredients for the brown rice pudding in the Instant Pot insert.
  • Close the lid and turn the pressure valve to sealing.
  • Cook the rice pudding on high pressure using the “porridge” setting for 25 minutes (or just set the timer for 25 minutes on manual). Let the pressure release naturally.
  • Remove the lid and mix up the pudding. Serve still warm topped with fresh berries, cinnamon, sliced almonds, a teaspoon of honey if desired.

Stove Top:

  • You’ll be making your rice first. Combine the brown rice with 1 1/2 cup water in a sauce pan. Bring the rice to a boil, then cover the sauce pan and reduce the heat to low. Allow the rice to cook for 40-45 minutes until the brown rice is tender, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove the lid (you should have edible brown rice now) and stir in almond milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • Bring the pudding to a boil again, then reduce the heat to low and allow the pudding to simmer uncovered for another 5-10 minutes until almond milk has reduced and the pudding is creamy.
  • Serve the brown rice pudding still warm, topping with fresh berries, cinnamon, sliced almonds, and honey.

Slow Cooker:

  • To make the rice pudding in a slow cooker you will need to increase the almond milk to 2 cups. This is because the liquid will evaporate more in the slow cooker than it will in the Instant Pot.
  • Combine all the brown rice, almond milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in the slow cooker. Remember to use 2 cups almond milk.
  • Cover and cook the rice on high pressure for 2-3 hours.
  • Serve when still warm and top with fresh berries, cinnamon, sliced almonds, and honey.

Note: I made the rice pudding unsweetened to allow the pudding to be sweetened to everyone’s taste. You can add a couple teaspoons of natural sweetener to the rice before cooking if desired.

    If I wasn’t on low-carb, I’d be devouring these right now. Love that you added three versions of the rice pudding so I can choose how to make them. Awesome!

  3. If I wanted to do 2 cups of rice should I just double up the milk?

    1. Yes, if you’re doubling the rice you should double the milk :)

  4. joan nass says:

    For stove top you say use water, but ingredients say almond milk. Which is it? Thank you

    1. I prefer to cook the rice with water, then make it into rice pudding with the almond milk:)

    .

    I tried it with leftover ancient grains, using using 1/2 cup skim milk and a cup of water on the stove top. It took a little longer to thicken, but came out great!

    Can you use just milk

    1. I haven’t used regular milk in this recipe, I’m sorry. :)
