I’m tardy to the party on the whole Instant Pot craze… but I couldn’t resist getting one on Prime Day. I gotta admit, I’m falling in love with it. It’s fantastic on hot summer days when you don’t want to turn on the oven and you can make almost anything in it. Case in point: I wanted to make a dessert without going out to buy any ingredients and came up with this delicious Vegan Rice Pudding in the Instant Pot! Its loaded with coconut, maple and cinnamon flavor. This dessert is so nutritious, I approve it for breakfast.
You can make this recipe using brown basmati rice or white if you prefer. The brown has a bit more texture to it that I really like. Plus, fiber! The Instant Pot makes it super creamy so it’s the texture of sticky rice but softer. Gotta love that “Porridge” button!
If you’re making this Vegan Rice Pudding as a breakfast (and I highly recommend you do), make it as is and then the morning of, top it with your favorite nuts, seeds, dried fruit, fresh fruit or jam.
Here are some of my favorite rice pudding/rice porridge toppings…
Sometimes the maple syrup comes out WAY TOO FAST. Super delicious, though!
