Arroz con Leche (Rice Pudding)

IMG_0120 IMG_0127

This arroz con leche recipe is completely vegan!! (Even though it literally means “rice with milk”) It is also free from refined sugar, and has a low glycemic index.

I made this recipe a few months ago, and I just wanted to throw it up on the site right now. I took pictures late at night, so they’re not very good. The pudding was good though. It’s quite easy to make, and relatively  healthy for a dessert. I’m working on a post about diets and our g-g-generation, so look out for that if that’s interesting to you.

Servings: 3

Cost per serving: $1.90


  • 1/2 c of uncooked, medium-grain rice
  • 1 c water
  • 3 c Unsweetened Almond milk
  • one cinammon stick
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 2.5 T stevia

To make:

  1. Rinse the rice
  2. Place rice, water, and almond milk in a pan and bring to a boil
  3. Once it boils, add the cinnamon, cover it and let it simmer on low for about 20-30 minutes. It’s ok if you let some steam escape and stir it because your’e not trying to make perfect little rice grains.
  4. Add the cloves, stevia and agave nectar.
  5. Eat, eat, eat


  • If you’re not vegan, you can always add a bit of sweetened condensed milk instead of the stevia.
  • You could just use regular vanilla almond milk, and that would be enough sweetness.
  • You can substitute almond milk for soy or coconut milk if you want to keep it vegan, but I think almond milk is the richest.
