Puerto Rican style rice pudding..... yummy and easy to do.

Ready In:
1hr 15mins



  • First it is recommended that you soak the rice in water for at least 3 hours before cooking so that it can soften up. After it has been soaking for a bit remove the water and begin to cook it.
  • In a heavy saucepan over med heat, bring the rice and water to a boil.
  • Lower the heat to simmer (LOW), add the cloves and cinnamon stick. Stir.
  • Let this cook (uncovered) until the water has evaporated ( 8 - 15 minutes ).
  • Add the remaining ingredients (except the pinch of cinnamon), stir gently once, and again let simmer (uncovered) until all liquid has evaporated.
  • Transfer into a casserole or serving dish, garnish with the pinch of cinnamon (sprinkle on top) and refrigerate.
  • Keep refrigerated. May be served at room temperature.

    Can this be made without adding shredded coconut? Thanks!

    I'm allergic to dairy. I usually drink almond milk, cashew milk or coconut milk. How can I substitute condensed milk and evaporated milk??

    Honestly, I am so shocked at how easy this was to prepare. The only tedious task is waiting for the rice to soak in water for a little over 3 hours. Lol! I love the fact that you don't have to add sugar or a ton of cinnamon for taste and flavor because of the condensed (sweetened) milk. The only 3 things that I dis different was, I added about 3/4 cup more of raisins, about 5 more spice cloves, and a little over a cup more of water when it was boiling with water. Other than that, it turned out extremely delicious!

    I have made this a few time and it always its a success. Being from Puerto Rican descent, this is a most at Christmas time in my house. However, something that was not mentioned in the recipe is that the rice has to be soaked in water for at least 3 hours before cooking. When putting in the pot make sure you drain the water.
