Dairy-Free Banana Rice Pudding

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.

Serves 8

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 210 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown basmati rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups plus gluten-free vanilla rice milk, divided (see Tip)
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 4 ripe bananas, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Combine rice, water and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until the liquid is fully absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes.

Step 2

Stir in 3 cups rice milk, brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and bring to a lively simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Stir cornstarch and the remaining 1 tablespoon rice milk in a small bowl until smooth; add to the pudding. Continue cooking, stirring often, until the mixture is the consistency of porridge, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Step 3

Mash 2 bananas in a small bowl. Stir the mashed bananas and vanilla into the pudding. Transfer to a large bowl, press plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the pudding and refrigerate until cold, at least 2 hours.

Step 4

Just before serving, slice the remaining 2 bananas. Top each serving with a few slices of banana and sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.
