    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.

    This Recipe Is:
    Prep: 30 minutes | Total Time: 3 1/2 hours (includes 2 hours chilling time)
    • 1   cup
      brown basmati rice
    • 2   cups
    • 1/2   teaspoon
    • 3   cups plus 1 tablespoon
      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
    • 4  
      ripe bananas, divided
    • 1   teaspoon
      vanilla extract
    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.
    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.
    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.
    4. Just before serving, slice the remaining 2 bananas. Top each serving with a few slices of banana and sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.


    Tip: Some brands of rice milk may contain gluten.
