Vegan Rice Pudding

This vegan rice pudding recipe has a creamy texture and a rich chocolate and vanilla flavor. This is the easiest, healthy rice dessert you can make. Give it a try!

I love rice pudding! My grandma used to make this dessert a lot when I was little and I still enjoy it today. This time, I decided to make it vegan, by using my favorite brand of vegan milk – Joya.

Also, unlike the original recipe which is just vanilla-flavored and sprinkled with cinnamon, I wanted to make it with chocolate as well. For this, I used the chocolate-flavored oats milk by Joya, but you can use any vegan milk of choice.

To make it even better, I served it with some banana slices. You can use any other fruit toppings you want, but I think that bananas go very well with this.

This vegan rice pudding recipe is also child-friendly, perfect for families, and if you want to make it in a larger quantity, you should know that you can also bake it! 🙂

I made this recipe with both vanilla and chocolate. I used plain soy milk and chocolate-flavored oats milk to boil the rice in. Alternatively, you can use just plain vegan milk, boil all the rice in it, and then divide the composition into half and mix one half with 1-2 teaspoons of cocoa. This version may be easier for you if you don’t have any chocolate-flavored vegan milk.

Make this simple vegan rice pudding and enjoy a delicious childhood dessert in less than half an hour. The recipe has both vanilla and chocolate versions!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • Vanilla Rice Pudding:
  • 50g (¼ cup) white round-shaped rice
  • 500ml (2 cups) natural or vanilla-flavored soy milk, or any other vegan milk; I used Joya milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 30g (1/8 cup) sugar
  • Chocolate Rice Pudding:
  • 50g (¼ cup) white round-shaped rice
  • 500ml (2 cups) chocolate-flavored soy milk , or any other vegan milk; I used Joya milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 30g (1/8 cup) sugar


  1. Rinse the rice with water. If you want to do just one type of pudding, double the quantities. If you want to do the duo vegan rice pudding, with both vanilla and cocoa, boil the rice in two separate pots.
  2. Add rice to a medium saucepan. Add sugar, vanilla and 1 cup of milk.
  3. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally until the milk is absorbed. Add the other cup and let the milk absorb while cooking on low heat and stirring occasionally.
  4. After ~30 minutes, the rice pudding will be ready. Add the cinnamon, mix well, and cover with a lid. Let it cool at room temperature.

At what point would you bake it, please?

Hi Nancy. You don't bake this. ;)

Hi, I would like to know if you can use vegan chocolate protein powder in place of the cocoa powder, in order to make the rice pudding protein-packed. Is there any possibility for this tweak? Any insight will be greatly appreciated

Sure! It can work just fine.

Tried this now and it blew my mind! I don't know why I never thought about making sweet rice puddings. It was delicious, especially the chocolate-flavored one. Thanks!
