Rice Pudding

EASY in the Instant Pot – – Dairy-Free and Sugar-Free!

Rice:

  • 1 c. basmati rice
  • 1½ c. water
  • ¼ tsp salt
  1. In Instant Pot, combine rice, water and salt. Lock lid on.
  2. Select Manual (high) for 3 minutes cooking time.
  3. When beeper goes off, use a natural pressure release for 10 minutes. Use quick release for any remaining pressure.
  4. Leave the rice in the Instant Pot and add the rest of the ingredients (following the pudding directions).

Pudding:

  • 1 c. canned coconut milk*
  • ¾ c. water
  • ½ c. Fiber Yum**
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ½ – 1 c. canned coconut milk*
  • cinnamon stick, optional
  • optional ingredients***
  1. Mix 1 c. coconut milk, water and Fiber Yum into rice. Stir to combine.
  2. In small bowl, mix, eggs, vanilla and ½ to 1 cup coconut milk (depending on how thick you like your pudding – – you can always add more). Mix well.
  3. Pour egg mixture through a strainer into the rice mixture. There will be a bit of ‘sludge’ left in strainer, toss out if you want a very smooth pudding. If in a hurry, just mix it all in.
  4. Add cinnamon stick if you like the flavor.
  5. Select sauté on the Instant Pot and cook, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a boil/simmer.
  6. Turn off heat and remove container from the Instant Pot base. Pudding thickens as it cools.

* I use the Thai brand coconut milk (in a can) – full fat for the health benefits. You could use low fat. I open the can, put all the contents in a small blender and pulse just until blended. This makes it easier to blend.

** Fiber Yum is a wonderful 0 sugar sweetener made from plant starch. It is not artificial, not as sweet as sugar. I use it often and describe it in the Sweetener Section in my Chocolate & Everything Else Cookbook. Order Fiber Yum on Amazon.

***Optional Ingredients:

You could add currants, raisins or nuts once it is cooked. I made the lemon flavor by sprinkling lemon zest on top and stirring some Lemon Balsamic Vinegar into finished product. You could use lemon juice (to taste) instead.

For chocolate, I stirred in Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips while it was warm.

For berry, stir in a few berries while warm and top with a berry for garnish.

For ‘whipped cream’, you can use regular diary cram, or make whipped coconut cream.
