Crockpot Creamy Rice Pudding

Crockpot Creamy Rice Pudding – This slow cooker rice pudding will please anyone who loves a rich creamy dessert. One of the best things about this recipe is how easy it is to quickly get together. This recipe also uses no eggs so there is no risk of ending up with eggy tasting rice. You can also try substituting the milk out with something that may be better suited for your needs such as soy or almond milk. I left raisins out of this recipe but if you would like to add them then they will work just fine. I recommend adding about ½ cup to the standard recipe.

Crockpot Creamy Rice Pudding

Ingredients

  • ¾ Cups long-grain white rice
  • 4 Cups milk
  • ½ Cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon or 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 tsp. vanilla bean or extract
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 cup raisins (optional)

Directions

  1. Firstly, rinse the rice under cold water.
  2. In the slow cooker add all the ingredients and mix until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Cover & cook on high for 2 ½ to 3 hours or until the rice is cooked and is creamy.
  4. Serve & Enjoy!

NOTES:

  • The time you cook this for may vary depending on the slow cooker you’re using. The high setting may be slightly different to the one I used for this recipe. If you’re unsure keep an eye on it for the first 10 minute and make sure it maintains a light simmer and not a boil.
  • If you love your rice puddings to be really creamy then you can try substituting 2 cups of milk with thickened cream instead. This will result in a much creamier texture but may be a slightly bit unhealthier.
  • Rinsing the rice under water helps remove a lot of the excess starch, rids of foreign matter and also just helps for a nice tasting rice pudding. You will also notice it won’t go as gluggy if you rinse the rice.

If you want something to go with your pudding I have a couple of suggestions that I often enjoy having with it. The following are just a few of my favorites:

  • Stewed apple with cinnamon
  • Mixed berries fresh or frozen
  • Caramelized pears
  • Stew Rhubarb

Of course a lot of these extras will likely involve more work but if you’re happy with just the vanilla version then you’re still in for a treat.
