Cinnamon Brown Rice Pudding

This Brown Rice Pudding is the ultimate comfort dessert. Made with hearty brown rice and sweet honey, you can whip up a delicious recipe in less than an hour. Enjoy a warm and creamy bowl of goodness tonight, as a post dinner treat. Best of all? It's gluten-free!

servings: 4 – 6

prep time: 5 minutes

cook time: 45 minutes

total time: 50 minutes


  • 1 cup round brown rice
  • 4 cups milk
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • sliced almonds & raisins for topping (optional)


Step 1: Rinse brown rice, until water runs clear.

Step 2: Bring 4 cups of milk and rice to a boil. Reduce flame to low, add sea salt, and cook rice for about 45 minutes or until all of the milk has been absorbed (stirring occasionally).

Step 3: Stir in butter, honey, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon.

Step 4: Serve warm, or cold, with your choice of toppings.

Note: This dessert can easily be made dairy free, by replacing the cow's milk with soy or almond milk, and omitting the butter. It will still be creamy and delicious.
