Enjoy this warm and comforting rice pudding made with almond milk as a dairy-free treat, or it can be made with milk.

  • Servings: 8


1 cup Arborio Rice
2 cups Water
¼ tsp Salt
2 cups Almond Milk or Regular Milk
2 Eggs
⅔ cup Sugar
1 tsp Almond Extract
½ tsp Cinnamon, plus additional for garnish
½ cup Toasted Sliced Almonds
Cinnamon Sticks, for garnish


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium saucepan, combine rice, water, and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes; remove from heat. Add almond milk, eggs, sugar, and almond extract to pan; whisk to combine. Spray a 2-quart glass baking bowl with cooking spray. Pour rice mixture into bowl and place in oven. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until thickened. Allow pudding to cool slightly to serve warm. Rice pudding may also be served at room temperature. It will thicken as it cools. Spoon pudding into serving cups, or martini glasses, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Garnish with almonds, a sprinkle of cinnamon and a cinnamon stick. Serve immediately.
