Sweet Black Rice Pudding

Celeste @TheWholeServing
Servings 2 cups


  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sweet black rice
  • 1 cup almond or coconut milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of maple syrup or brown sugar
  • yogurt
  • fruit of your choice
  • granola


  • Place the rice in a bowl and cover with water. Rub the rice between your hands to remove some of the starches. Rinse using a mesh strainer until water runs clear. Proceed to the next step or return rice to a bowl and cover with clean water and allow to sit over night.
  • Mix water, rice, milk and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
  • Once it starts to boil reduce heat cover and simmer for 35 to 40 minutes or until rice is tender, stirring occasionally. Add extra water if rice gets dry.
  • During the last 5 minutes of cooking time stir in the maple syrup or brown sugar to taste.
  • Spoon into bowls, top with yogurt, fruit of your choice and granola.
  • Serve and enjoy.


Soaking the rice overnight will help to reduce the cooking time.
