This rice pudding is dairy-free, but the bananas and rice milk make it so creamy and rich-tasting, no one will know the difference.

I really wanted to make this, but because of ingredients on hand, I had to change a couple of things. I had some left over jasmine rice (about 1 1/2 c cooked) that I used and poured a can of coconut milk into it along with some cinnamon and just a little brown sugar to taste. Once it came to a boil I didn't see the need to use the cornstarch as it thickened on its own. At first, because of the reviews, I only used one "pretty ripe" banana. But after tasting I used the other that I sliced, as it was less ripe. This turned out sooo good! For as ripe as the bananas were, it still wasn't too sweet at all! If you like bananas (and I don't even like banana bread!) try it with the bananas! Very yummy! Thank you for the recipe!

Dairy free, fruit healthy desert
greatest dairy free pudding I've ever had!

I made this with regular almond milk. The almond milk gets to a porridge like consistency very fast. It only took 2 minutes! I only added one banana due to comments from people who didn't use any or thought the banana was too much. One very ripe banana worked perfectly. I normally buy my daughter dairy free puddings at the store, but I never think they are any good. I will take the time to make this for her when she wants pudding from now on!

great tasting dairy free pudding

I started cooking the pudding, then read the comment of the bananas making it too sweet. Since I used vanilla soy milk that is already lightly sweetened, instead if rice milk, I tasted it as I went. My family agreed that it did not need the bananas at all. My daughter, who is dairy free loved it. :) The rest if us like it, too.


This looks so delicious! I can't wait to try it, and it is good to see some pointers. What a great recipe for anyone who is lactose intolerant. Has anyone tried it with soy milk? It's a bit cheaper than rice milk where I'm from. Also per serving this has little sugar making it good for diabetics or dieter's. Great desert! Thanks for posting.

Recipe needs tweaking for my tastes

I only included 1 mashed banana and I STILL thought it was a bit much. Additionally, I would cut back to 1/4 tsp cinnamon. I found that 1/2 tsp was too strong and almost bitter tasting. (Maybe it would've been better if I waited until Step 4 to stir the cinnamon in?) Otherwise a solid recipe.

No eggs, non-dairy milk, minimal sugar
