what our readers think

– white rice – water – coconut milk – ground cinnamon – sea salt – cinnamon sticks – maple syrup – vanilla extract



Plug in your crock pot and spray the bottom and sides with cooking spray. This makes for easier cleanup once the pudding has finished cooking.

Transfer the uncooked rice to the crock pot, along with the coconut milk, water, ground cinnamon, cinnamon sticks, and sea salt.


Give everything a big stir.



Secure the lid on the slow cooker and slow cook on High heat for 3 to 4 hours or until it reaches your desired consistency. Once the rice pudding is nice and thick, stir in the pure maple syrup, rum, and the vanilla extract and taste the pudding for flavor.


Transfer the rice pudding to an airtight container and refrigerate until completely chilled. You can also serve rice pudding warm fresh out of the crock pot, which is what I often do.
