It’s time for pumpkin desserts, and this one is healthy, vegan, gluten-free and delicious!
I was compensated by Success® Rice to create this recipe. However, like always, the opinions are entirely my own. Promise 🙂
I know traditional rice puddings call for the rice to cook for 30-40 minutes before you add all of the good stuff. I used Success® Boil in the Bag brown rice which saves time from measuring and cooking for that long. Anything that saves me time? I’m in! And Success® brown rice is 100% whole grain and gluten-free so this is perfect for me to lighten up typical rice pudding. I also love the fact that you simply place the bag in the water and it’s the perfect texture after just 8-10 minutes. And you can leave the cooked rice in the hot water for up to 30 minutes (with the heat off) before being served to keep it hot. Genius! I appreciate easy. 🙂
Of course, it is almost October and I knew I just had to make this pudding with fall flavors. This pumpkin rice pudding was incredible! And the house smelled pretty amazing too. I am going to make it next time with apples, just to continue my fall theme.
Pumpkin Rice Pudding
- 1 quart water
- 1 bag of Success® Boil in Bag Whole Grain Brown Rice
- 4 tablespoons 100% maple syrup
- 3 cups almond milk
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice seasoning
- 1 cup pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened dried cranberries
Place Success® boil in bag rice in large saucepan with quart of water. Bring to a boil and cook for 8-10 minutes.
While rice is cooking, place milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, pumpkin and vanilla in a large saucepan over medium heat.
Bring to a boil and allow to simmer. Mix well.
Add 1 cup hot rice and coconut oil and continue to stir. Cook about 40 minutes until milk reduces. Continue to stir occasionally to avoid the milk from curdling.
Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Top with dried cranberries when ready to serve.
Place in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
I only used half of the bag for this recipe (1 cup) and I used the remaining cup for dinner that night (stir-fry with rice!). You can easily double this recipe to make more of it. I didn’t realize how fast this pudding would disappear!
