Carrot Cake Brown Rice Pudding

Oatmeal for breakfast and seasonal treats for dessert are all well and good this time of year, but sometimes you just want something a little different.

This vegan brown rice “pudding” – featuring ingredients and flavors found in carrot cake – is just the ticket, whether you’re yearning for a unique warm breakfast or a healthy dessert.

Now, I put “pudding” in quotation marks because this is not your typical rice pudding made with eggs, milk, and tons of sugar.


This is a hearty porridge-like dish chock full of nutritious foods, which means not only will your mouth be happy…

… your body will be too!



Carrot Cake Brown Rice Pudding

Ingredients (6 servings)

  • 1 (13.5 oz) can light coconut milk, well-shaken
  • 1 cup unsweetened rice milk
  • 1/2 cup short grain brown rice
  • 1/4 packed cup brown sugar
  • 1 packed cup freshly grated peeled carrots, about 3 medium
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • pinch ground nutmeg


Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan set over medium-high heat.

Bring to a simmer; reduce heat to low, partially cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the mixture is thick, stirring often, about 60-75 mintues. If a “skin” forms on the top of the pudding while cooking, just stir it back into the mixture. It is especially important to tend to the pudding near the end of cooking, as it could burn.

Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature before transferring to an airtight container and refrigerating until thickened.

  6. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start
    my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m
    looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then
    most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider
    at a fair price? Kudos, I appreciate it! recently

  8. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your website.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
    A handful of my blog readers have complained about
    my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks
    great in Safari. Do you have any recommendations
    to help fix this problem?
