Vegan Rice Pudding (Arroz Con Leche)

So now that we are in December you are probably in the midst of “bulking” season (a.k.a. annual weight gain due to holiday eating and not giving a fuck) LOL! And guess what we are just going to keep it going all through December because I have a bunch of sweets and delicious meals planned for this month! Today’s recipe is one of my all-time favorite desserts which I learned to make from my grandma. If you are Hispanic or are familiar with Latino culture (primarily food culture), you know that rice pudding, or arroz con leche is a classic sweet, loved by all! So if you are excited to see this turned vegan or you are simply intrigued, keep scrolling for the full recipe!

Ingredients:

 

 

 

Directions:

  1. Place rice, water, cinnamon sticks, and cloves in medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat
  2. Allow to cook until most of the water is evaporated but NOT ALL, make sure rice has expanded, becoming softer and thicker
  3. Add cup of soy milk and allow to boil over medium heat, stir frequently until thick (not runny)
  4. Add condensed coconut milk and stir until it is a thick pudding substance
  5. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes
  6. Serve and sprinkle cinnamon (some do raisins as well) over it
  7. For people who enjoy this pudding cold, allow it to cool for 30 minutes and then place in the refrigerator overnight

 

 

My abuela makes a dope arroz con leche, so I’m hoping I make her damn proud while still choosing the cruelty-free ingredient route! I am confident you guys will love it, but let me know in the comments below!

Hello internet world! My name is Jess and I welcome you to my experimental, hopefully long-lasting and successful vegan food blog! Eleven months ago (September 2016), I made the decision to discontinue my carnivorous ways and change to a mostly plant-based diet. As a month or so past, I figured why not try this whole "vegan" thing and completely cut out not only flesh, but dairy, eggs, and any other animal bi-products from my diet and lifestyle. I am now coming up on a year since my journey began and I feel better than ever! This lifestyle choice is extremely beneficial for so many reasons including personal health, the environment and of course loving instead of eating and mistreating our fellow earthlings. Prior to making my positively life-changing decision I had always had the thought of doing it in the back of my mind. Coming from a Hispanic family and culture where multiple forms of meat are crucial to every meal, I never thought I could actually really commit to it long-term. Once I dove in to this challenge I realized it really wasn't even a massive challenge and every day after a delicious meal I thought to myself, "Hey this isn't bad at all!" The purpose of this blog is to highlight the abundance of vegan-friendly products that are out there and how I included them in my every day, easy to make meals during my transition and even now. I've always been a food lover and am eager to indulge in tasteful meals, snacks and desserts. So whether you are vegan already, interested in becoming one but don't know where to start, or you are just curious to experience the awesomeness of vegan foods, TURN ON your vegan self and check out these amazing options that are just waiting to be made by YOU!

  1. My husband and I really enjoyed it. It’s easy to make and we didn’t miss normal milk, which is used in the regular recipe. Well done! Thanks!!!!
