When I think of comfort food desserts, rice pudding comes to mind, and rice pudding made with coconut milk is not only dairy-free but extra luxurious.

Our vegan rice pudding recipe is spiced with cardamom and saffron and served with flaked almonds. This is a warming vegan dessert with beautiful flavours.

The coconut milk in this recipe makes the rice pudding an indulgent vegan sweet treat. Coconut milk is made from the white flesh of brown coconuts and is high in calories, but it is also nutritious. It’s full of vitamins and minerals, including manganese, copper and iron

You can enjoy the rice pudding hot or cold, and it is equally appetising.
