What is rice pudding? A pudding made with rice cooked in sweet milk until creamy. In this instant pot gluten-free rice pudding, I added subtle pumpkin pie spices, vanilla and raisins making this pudding into a delicious creamy dessert. By using instant pot, I saved a lot of time standing by the stove stirring the rice until it is cooked and creamy. The best part is, this pumpkin pie spice rice pudding is wonderful for breakfast, snack or a dessert, has 7 grams of protein per serving and the kids love it! Add some healthy toppings like seeds, nuts or berries to make this pudding even more delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. Unsalted butter
  • 1/2 pure maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. GF ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. GF ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. GF ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp. GF ground cloves
  • 3 cups whole milk, or non-dairy milk of choice, divided
  • 3/4 - 1 cup raisins (I used 1 cup)
  • Optional toppings; nuts, seeds, berries, lemon zest, cinnamon, butter, maple syrup, raisins, fruit syrup, cream
  • Instructions

  • Soak rice in cold water for 15 minutes, then rinse and drain well
  • Add rice, 1 1/2 cups water and salt to the instant pot. Stir to combine, then add butter
  • Lock the lid, set to manual with steam release handle in sealing position. Cook for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes press cancel and allow natural pressure release for 10 minutes, then release any additional pressure and unlock the lid
  • While the rice is cooking, whisk together maple syrup, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves. Add 2 cups of milk and mix well
  • Add milk mixture and raisins to the rice and mix to combine. Set to manual with steam release handle in sealing position. Cook for 1 minute, then cancel and allow natural pressure release for 5 minutes. Release any additional pressure and stir in remaining milk. Cool. The rice pudding will thicken as it cools. At this point, you can add more milk if needed for desired consistency
  • Transfer into a serving dish or small bowls and refrigerate.
  • Serve as is, or with desired toppings
