Black rice pudding with Chia Seeds

Black rice pudding with Chia Seeds

Here’s a recipe for black rice pudding with chia seeds:


- 1 cup black rice

- 2 cups water

- 1 cup coconut milk (plus extra for serving)

- 1/4 cup maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)

- 1 tsp vanilla extract

- 1/4 tsp salt

- 3 tbsp chia seeds

- Fresh fruit (for topping, optional)

- Toasted coconut flakes (for topping, optional)



1. Rinse the Rice:

- Rinse 1 cup of black rice under cold water until the water runs clear.

2. Cook the Rice:

-In a medium saucepan, combine the rinsed black rice and 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil.

- Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for about 35-40 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the water is mostly absorbed.

3. Add Coconut Milk and Sweetener:

- Stir in 1 cup of coconut milk, 1/4 cup of maple syrup, 1 tsp of vanilla extract, and 1/4 tsp of salt.

- Continue to cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for another 10-15 minutes, until the mixture thickens to a pudding-like consistency.

4. Add Chia Seeds:

- Stir in 3 tbsp of chia seeds and mix well.

 - Remove from heat and let the pudding sit for about 10 minutes to allow the chia seeds to expand and thicken the pudding further.

5. Serve:

 - Serve warm or chilled, topped with fresh fruit and toasted coconut flakes if desired.

- Add an extra splash of coconut milk before serving for added richness.



Make Ahead: This pudding can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. The chia seeds will continue to thicken the pudding as it sits, so you might want to add a little extra coconut milk before serving if it becomes too thick.

Variations: You can add spices like cinnamon or cardamom for extra flavor, or mix in dried fruits like raisins or cranberries while cooking the rice.


Enjoy your delicious and nutritious black rice pudding with chia seeds!
