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 Banana Rice Pudding

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.
8 Reviews for Dairy-Free Banana Rice Pudding
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!
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.
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.
