I made many versions of this rice pudding recipe. Each time, the unanimous “thumbs-up” from my entire family eluded me. So I kept trying. Until this last version. The winning version. Everybody – husband, 5 year old, 8 year old, my parents and I – LOVED it.

Dairy-free rice pudding

Yes, I know it’s summer. You are thinking “I am not turning my oven on for anything in the world!” I think you should make an exception. I really do. For this delicious rice pudding. And if you regret, please let me know. But I know FOR SURE you won’t!

Here’s what I propose: make the rice pudding on a Saturday or Sunday morning and then plop it in the fridge. Plan for a light supper (salad with grilled chicken for example) and serve this carbilicious dessert with it. Grate some chocolate on top and enjoy! You can have your fruit salad another day 😉 .

What do you think? Have I convinced you to make this creamy sweet rice pudding? If you make it, I would love to hear from you. How did it turn out? Were you able to stop yourself from eating the entire casserole?
