I started making my own oat milk (< click for link) last year. It’s so easy, so good and you know what ingredients are in it. I use it in my tea, cereal and baking.

Milk choices

You can use any of your favorite milk for this recipe. Almond, rice, soy, coconut or regular milk will all work perfectly.

Let’s talk about the brûlée. If you’ve ever had crème brûlée then you know the crispy top is the best part. For this rice pudding you don’t have to do it, but I think it gilds the lily.

Making this rice pudding in the crockpot is a great option. Add all the ingredients, stir and cook on high for 2 ½ hours until all the milk is absorbed.  How simple is that?

Oat milk is used to make this dairy-free version of a classic dessert with a crispy topping.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 3 cups (708 ml) oat milk
  • ¼ cup (50 grams) granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups (342 grams) long grain white rice
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon, or to taste
  • Granulated sugar for topping


  1. Add the milk, sugar, salt, rice, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg to a saucepan and heat over high heat. Stir to mix well.
  2. Bring the milk to a boil, reduce heat to medium low, cover and cook for 20 minutes stirring frequently to prevent the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan and clumping together. Add more liquid if needed.
  3. When the rice is tender and creamy, transfer to ramekins and flatten the top. If making ahead you can cover and refrigerate then brûlée when serving.
  4. Sprinkle an even layer of sugar on top and oven broil or use a kitchen blow torch to brown.
