I love this vegan rice pudding because the whole family can eat it. Chanelle’s diet is dairy-free, gluten-free and vegetarian/vegan, so when she comes over, I try to make special treats like this vegan rice pudding recipe because she has a big sweet tooth!
If you’ve never tried rice pudding, you should! It’s similar in consistency to tapioca, so if you like that, you’ll probably like rice pudding too. It’s also pretty easy to make; if you know how to stir, you’ve pretty much got the whole technique down.

When substituting for dairy, I like to use unsweetened almond milk because it’s so versatile and it doesn’t alter the taste of the final recipe (in my opinion). I’ve been really happy with the light and smooth taste of So Delicious Almondmilk with Cashew. Not only is it dairy-free, it’s also organic, Non-GMO, Soy-free and gluten-free! It’s made with only what’s needed – nothing else, and in the unsweetened version there are only 35 calories per serving!
And don’t you just love the bottle? It’s made from at least 80% plants — renewable sugarcane — and it’s recyclable. Pretty cool, huh? It’s just another reason to feel good about So Delicious organic almondmilk.
To make the vegan rice pudding, just cook and stir the ingredients on the stovetop. So simple, and So Delicious!
I think this vegan rice pudding is even better than regular rice pudding. Is the secret in the So Delicious almondmilk with cashew? I think it might be!
