Are you a rice pudding fan? I am! I love how sweet, sticky, and full of chewy texture it is. While most recipes use white rice for pudding, I’m putting a healthy twist on this recipe and using brown rice.

This recipe is also unique because it’s dairy-free, using almond milk and coconut milk to add richness without dairy. Let me show you exactly how to make it.

Recipe Steps

Step One

You really only need six ingredients for this recipe. Please see the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact measurements.

The first step is to combine the rice (rinse it in a fine-mesh colander first), coconut milk, almond milk, maple syrup, raisins, and cinnamon in the base of your pressure cooker.

Step Two

Lock on the lid and set the time to 25 minutes. Then, let the pressure come down naturally for about 5 minutes and then carefully use the quick-release to get rid of any remaining pressure.

Step Three

Remove the lid and press the sauté button on the Instant Pot. Then, stir in your beaten egg and let the pudding cook for a few more minutes to cook the egg and thicken.

Step Four

Cancel the Sauté button and let the pudding cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.
