This recipe combines canned coconut milk and cooked rice—white or brown rice—to result in a delicious, creamy dessert. The coconut milk cooks the rice into a perfectly soft texture,and with a tad of sweetener and a dash of cinnamon, this vegan rice pudding is the perfect sweet comfort food.


  • 1 cup coconut milk (about 1/2 can)
  • 1 tablespoon agave or maple syrup
  • 1 cup cooked brown or white rice
  • Dash cinnamon


  1. Pour coconut milk into a small pot over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer. Add agave and stir to combine. Add rice and continue to stir until evenly distributed.
  2. Let mixture simmer for about 5 minutes. Liquids should boil off and mixture will become thicker. Serve sprinkled with cinnamon.
