2-Ingredient Creamy Vanilla Rice Pudding

http://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2016/03/2-ingredient-creamy-vanilla-rice-pudding.html

Creamy Vanilla Rice Pudding is the epitome of comfort food. This simple dessert made with just 2 ingredients is rich, silky and utterly delicious! This recipe is so simple it just about cooks itself!

We are so excited to be partnering with International Delight®  to bring you another fabulous recipe. I don't know about you, but I love my coffee so I always have creamer in the house. I have found this to be an amazing convenient ingredient in cooking and baking sweets. So, of course when I started thinking about rice pudding I thought of International Delight.

RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM

I remember my mom making rice pudding for us. Of course, as my mom was a penny pincher it was always with left over white rice from dinner a few nights earlier. If we didn't have leftover rice there was no rice pudding. Which kinda stinks when you love rice pudding.

So what if you want a quick and easy rice pudding and you don't have any left over rice? Well, that is exactly where I started. Have you ever had risotto? It is rich and creamy. It is made with an Italian short grain rice called Arborio. The rice has a high starch content which leads to the creaminess of the risotto. So, I started thinking... What if I use Arborio rice in my rice pudding?

Well, the result is an amazing thick, rich and creamy flavorful rice pudding made with just 2 ingredients (and water and salt)! It is a so easy to make, you literally dump it in a pot, let it cook and then stir for a few minutes.It is perfectly rich, creamy and delicious.

My husband, Chad, has been refusing to try the store bought rice pudding for years. But this recipe, he devoured!

=================================================================

Creamy Vanilla Rice Pudding
SERVES 6  |  ACTIVE TIME 10 Min  |  TOTAL TIME 30 Min
1 cup uncooked Arborio rice 
2 cups water
2 cups International Delight French Vanilla Creamer
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Optional Toppings: cinnamon or fruit 

Combine ingredients in a large (8 quart) saucepan over high heat. Stir to combine. Bring to 'medium' boil. *SEE NOTE. Reduce to simmer (on medium-low temperature) for 20 minutes. Cover.

Remove cover, increase temperature to medium-high and stir constantly until rice is tender and pudding is thick and creamy, about 3-5 minutes.

Remove from heat. Pour into serving dishes. Serve warm immediately or chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve. 


If desired add optional toppings right before serving. 

Enjoy!
 
DONNA'S NOTES: Do not bring to a full rolling boil and then cover. It will boil over and you will be left with a nasty stove to clean. Don't ask me how I know, just trust me on this one. 


We do not count water and salt when considering the number of ingredients.

SLOW COOKER METHOD:  Combine ingredients in a slow cooker (I used a 3 quart). Stir, cover and cook on high for 1 1/2 - 3 hours. It took 3 hours in my 3 quart round. Rice should be soft and pudding thick when it is ready.

The first time you prepare this I recommend tasting a piece of rice after 1 hour 30 minutes. If it is not chewy yet cover it and let it cook 30 more minutes and check again. The more you stir the more the pudding will thicken. That said, about 15 minutes before the pudding is done remove cover and stir until pudding is thickened. Serve and enjoy!

  1. I only have one cup the of Vanilla Creamer. Can I substitute whole milk and vanilla for the rest of it and in what quantities? Do I need to add more sweetener then?

    1. Hi Kris! I have not tested it that way. The creamer is also lending sweetness to the rice pudding, so you will want to add sweetness (ie. sugar).

      Alternately you can make 1/2 of the recipe this time and if you love it (which you will) you can get more ingredients for the next time.

      Enjoy and let us know how it goes!

    2. Thanks for the reply. There are only two of us anyway, so halving the recipe would make sense.

    3. Awesome. Enjoy and let us know how it goes. Watch your cook time when halving the recipe though. I would err on the side of caution and keep a close eye on it.

    4. Well, I made the rice pudding. It was awesome! BUT, I used a 5.75 qt. pot for 1/2 a recipe and it still boiled over! Go figure.

    5. I am so happy you loved it!

      Gosh that is crazy, to boil over in that pot. I used an 8 quart the first time and it boiled over. So, I had to adjust my cooking method and clean my stove. Thank goodness for baking soda.

    6. My mom use to bring milk and rice to boil on medium stirring often and when was ready she add sugar, vanilla flavour and lemon zest. Was sooooo good! But I will try and this recipe. Thank you

  2. It says reduce simmer for 20 min. Cover remove and increase heat. Ok. Do I cover for 20 min then remove.. kinda confused.

    1. You will bring ingredients to a medium boil, without a cover on the pot. Reduce (temperature to medium-low) to simmer, cover the pot. Then after 20 minutes of simmering you will remove cover and increase temp to medium-high (to thicken the pudding).

      Hope that helps! Enjoy.

  3. Donna, LOVE your site! You note says that you don't count oil as one of the ingredients but I don't ever see it on the list. Am I missing something?

    1. Thanks! We love our readers. Actually it is a general disclosure for our 'few-ingredient' recipes. There is no oil in this recipe. I appreciate you pointing it out though.

      If you give this recipe a go, let us know. Enjoy!

    1. I encourage you to test it out and let us know how it goes. I have not attempted to make this in the microwave. But, I would be very interested to hear your results. Enjoy and let us know how it goes!

  6. Would this work in a crockpot?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have not tested a crockpot method yet. But now I am curious so I am going to test it today. I would recommend a 2 hour cook time on high. Then remove the cover and stir until it is thick and creamy. The stirring encourages the arborio rice to release its starch. Enjoy and please let us know how it goes.

    2. Thank you for the question. I tested this today in the slow cooker. I will update the recipe to reflect the cooking option.

      I added the ingredients a 3 qt slow cooker. Covered and cooked on high for 3 hours. 15 minutes before it was ready I removed the cover and gave it a really good stir (agitating the rice helps release the starch and thicken up the pudding). It was perfect after 3 hours.

      NOTE: Cook time can vary based on your slow cooker. The first time you make it I would start checking it after 1 hour and 30 minutes.

  7. Was wondering if I could use Jasmine rice instead...if so, do I need to adjust the cooking time?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can try jasmine, however the reason this recipe works so well is because of the ingredients used. The arborio rice is very starchy and helps make this pudding delicious and creamy. Jasmine rice would not have the same outcome.

  8. Mine took way to long to boil down.does the rice brand matter?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It is possible. I only tested it with the rice brand I linked to. But stove temperatures, heat conductivity from the sauce pan and so many other variables can vary the cook time as well. I hope you enjoyed the pudding.

  9. Could this be made with minute rice and made in microwave? I would assume you wouldn't need the water. Just creamer and rice?

  11. Sorry to ask where can I buy the vanilla creamer??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The creamer is available in the dairy case at your local market. I have seen it at every store that I shop at. You can also use their locator here: https://www.internationaldelight.com/where-to-buy

  12. I only have the powder creamer will that work?

  13. I am in the UK, unfortunately they don't seem to sell this in our shops, is there an alternative that I could use?

    Replies
    1. They do have coffee creamer in flavored powder form.So that with some regular creamer would do the trick I suppose if your stores offer that as an alternative.

  14. Good Lord, the comments just amaze me. Can folks not read the recipe and just make it as is? Seriously doubt the author has had time to test with all the various substitutions you people are asking about. Why don't YOU try it and let us know your results. Sounds good just as written and will try one day!

  15. I made this today using the pumpkin spice creamer. Yum yum. Have also used cinnabon cinnamon flavor creamer. They are all so delicious.
