This rice pudding is so delicious, it reminds me of my childhood back in Colombia. There are different variations of “Arroz Con Leche” in Latin America, but this is my vegan Colombian version.

Dairy-Free Rice Pudding

  • 1 cup organic white rice
  • 4 cups of filtered water
  • 4 organic cinnamon sticks
  • 4 whole organic cloves
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or any sweetener of your choice)
  • 1 can coconut sweetened condensed milk (I use “Nature’s Charm” brand from Amazon)
  • 6 cans unsweetened evaporated coconut milk (Nature’s Charm” brand)
  • Cinnamon powder (for sprinkling on top at serving time)


Add rice to water with cinnamon sticks and cloves to a pot, cook until rice is soft; once rice is soft, add coconut sugar, evaporated coconut milk and coconut condensed milk.

Let it boil in medium heat, then lower the heat, stir, and scrape the bottom of the pot, until it thickens a little. Do not over cook, it will thicken even more in the fridge.

Remove cinnamon sticks and cloves; refrigerate before serving.  

Serve warm or cold, top it with cinnamon powder and decorate with cinnamon sticks.

I always wondered how certain food combinations are created, liked, and enjoyed universally like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, pita bread and hummus, tortillas and salsa, soup and crackers, salad and dressing, rice and lentils, and crepe and tomato chutney. Whoever created these combinations really did a great job in figuring out the food pair/combo and they taste delicious together. Likewise, our Creator is a...
