  • Author: Lily

Homemade almond milk rice pudding is so easy to make! It's creamy, vegan, dairy-free, and made from scratch using cooked rice.


  • 4 Cups of Homemade Almond Milk
  • 3 tbsp Cornstarch
  • 1 Cup Cooked Rice (about 5.5 ounces or 160 grams)
  • 1/2 cup Sugar OR 15 Medjool Dates (added to the almond milk)


  1. Make your almond milk. If sweetening with dates, add the extra dates to the almond milk when blending the almonds.
  2. Strain the almond milk for a smooth milk base.
  3. In a pot, add the cornstarch, sugar (if using), and almond milk together. Stir for 30 seconds to a minute until the cornstarch is fully dissolved.
  4. Put the pot on the stovetop on high heat. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer (medium-high heat). Continuously monitor and stir every couple of minutes until the almond milk thickens up (about 7 to 10 minutes). 
  5. Add in the cooked rice. Continue to stir until the rice expands slightly (about 5 to 7 minutes).
  6. Remove from the stovetop and allow to cool for 30 minutes.
  7. Serve with crushed nuts or ground spices.


  • Thicken up the rice pudding while on the stovetop by continuing to stir on medium-high heat until the pudding mixture is at the desired consistency.
  • Thicken up the rice pudding by allowing it to cool at room temperature or in the fridge. 
  • If the pudding is too thick, add a little bit of almond milk and stir.
