Brown rice pudding with cinnamon recipe

Everyone loves a rice custard and this brown rice pudding is perfect on cooler evenings. Made from wholegrain brown rice this pudding takes the nutrition up a notch and is perfect for the most active families.



  • 2 1/2 cups (625ml) low-fat milk
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1/4 cup sultanas
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


Combine milk and rice in a small saucepan and over medium heat and bring it to the boil. Turn down heat and gently simmer while stirring for 5 minutes.

Add sultanas, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Continue to stir while the flavours infuse for approximately 5 minutes over low heat.

Remove from heat and allow to sit for about 10 minutes, until rice absorbs flavours.

Transfer to a large bowl and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until pudding sets.


  • If the pudding tends to soak up all the milk, just add in some more before serving and mix.
  • If you don't have maple syrup, you can use golden syrup, honey or even a stevia to sweeten this recipe.
  • I like to serve this with some good quality Greek yoghurt.
