Egg Nog Rice Pudding

Holiday sweet treats aren’t limited to cookies and pies. This smooth, creamy Egg Nog Rice Pudding comes together easily, with smooth seasonal flavors to rival any traditional dessert!

We’ve also included a low sugar and egg-free option for those navigating the holidays with diet restrictions. The only sugar comes from a lower-sugar, egg-less almond milk-based holiday nog. Additional sweetness is added with a small amount of monk fruit whose delicate sweetness compliments the traditional spices of the season.

Egg Nog Rice Pudding

1 C water
1/2 C rice (I used Basmati, but Jasmine and Arborio work well, too)
1.5 C milk of your choice
1 TBSP sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 C egg nog
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring water to a boil. Stir in rice. Turn the heat to low and simmer the rice, covered, until all of the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes.

Over low heat, add the milk, sugar, and vanilla extract to the cooked rice. Bring to a low boil, stirring often so the milk doesn’t burn. Stir often, until the milk cooks down and the rice is creamy, about 20 minutes.

Add the egg nog, cinnamon, and nutmeg and cook until thickened, about 10 minutes more.
