  • 1 cup brown rice rinsed
  • 1 can coconut milk full fat (equivalent to 2 cups)
  • 2 cups water
  • coconut condensed milk see post for recipe link
  • 1 cinnamon stick or ½ teaspoon ground
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ raisins or fruit of your choice
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Soak the rice grains overnight or at least 8 hours to soften, if not doing this optional step then skip it
  • Switch on your instant pot and add all of the listed ingredients excluding the vegan condensed milk

  • Set your pressure cooker to "high" and adjust the +/- button to 20 minutes.

  • Place the lid on and put the valve on "sealing" let the unit come to pressure and work its magic.

  • When the pressure cooking is finished allow to natural release (should take 10-15 minutes) then turn the knob to "venting" to release the excess pressure

  • Remove the lid and stir in the desired amount of sweetener, add a bit more ground cinnamon and nutmeg to enhance the taste further and serve!


  • You can serve this pudding hot or cold, it's totally up to you!
  • Feel free to add whatever fruit you like, dried or fresh
  • For best results refrigerate any leftovers and consume with 2-3 days. 
  • If you intend to freeze the remaining pudding make sure to use a freezer friendly bowl(s)
  • Make sure to use plant based milk that is FULL fat, light versions will result in a less dense texture. 
  • Soak the rice in water overnight or for at least 8 hours to soften the grains (optional)
