You will LOVE this Pumpkin Rice Pudding Recipe with coconut milk & Vermont Maple Syrup. Fall-flavored breakfast or dessert with pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, coconut flakes, and raisins. It's a Gluten-Free recipe.
- 1 cup Arborio rice
- 3 cups whole milk
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1-1/4 cup evaporated milk
- 1 cup coconut cream or coconut milk
- 1/2 cup + 1 Tablespoon of canned pumpkin puree
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla paste
- 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
- 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon Pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 cup raisins
- Serving drizzle of maple syrup
- Combine: In a medium saucepan, combine the rice, milk, sea salt and two sticks of cinnamon. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring often to prevent the rice from sticking and the milk from boiling over. Then, reduce the heat to medium-low.
- Cook for 25-30 minutes or the rice is soft. Stir throughout the process to prevent the rice from sticking to the pan.
- Add the pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, coconut milk, cardamom, vanilla paste, coconut flakes, raisins, and maple syrup.
- Mix well and continue cooking, stirring often. Cook until the rice is cooked completely and rice pudding gets creamy, soft, and a bit thicker. Add more milk if necessary. Remember after the rice pudding gets cold, it will thicken more. I recommend to stop cooking before all the liquid is gone.
- To Serve: Place the Pumpkin Rice Pudding in a small bowl, sprinkle cinnamon and pour on some maple syrup.
