Dairy Free Rice Pudding

Rice is naturally gluten free. This is great for me since rice is a staple in my house. And this simple recipe only has 5 ingredients and works with any kind of leftover cooked rice you have. I used brown rice in mine, but you can easily use leftover Chinese takeout rice, Uncle Ben’s rice, Basmati rice, etc. For the milk aspect I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but you can use soy milk,vanilla soy milk, original almond milk, basically whatever you prefer and whatever meets your allergy/sensitivity needs. The only downside to this recipe is that it took about an hour for the rice to absorb the milk to the right consistency. It was so yummy and I’m excited to make it again! Enjoy!

Ingredients
2 cups cooked leftover rice
3 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions
1. Put all ingredients into a sauce pan over medium high heat. Stir occasionally so the rice doesn’t stick to the bottom. Bring rice mixture to a boil and reduce heat to medium-low. Stir rice to keep a skin from forming at the top of your pudding. Keep checking back and cook until desired consistency, 50-60 minutes. Serve warm or chilled.

About Food4Thought

I am no fitness expert. I am simply someone who has found joy in fitness and nutrition. I am a certified group fitness instructor. I’ve been teaching at the local health club for about 3 years now. While Zumba was my first love, I have since added Total Conditioning, Bodyworks plus Abs, and Core to my repertoire of classes. I work with a personal trainer to help me reach my fitness goals that I cannot obtain through group fitness alone. This year I ran my first 5K and plan to run my first 10K in March. To further my knowledge in the fitness realm, I have begun reading Strong Women Stay Slim, New Rules for Lifting Abs, and The Body Sculpting Bible for Women. On my list to read next is Wheat Belly. I am always looking for new ways to further my education and knowledge to better serve the members that take my group fitness classes. Lately, I have started tinkering with recipes, buying healthy cookbooks, and finding easy, tasty, and healthy foods to make. Like I mentioned earlier, I am by no means an expert, but the things I share with you have helped me tremendously with my fitness journey. It is my hope that with these easy tips and recipes, that you too can make these tiny steps and see big positive changes in your life.
