Low FODMAP Vegan Red Rice & Coconut Pudding

Updated: May 18

If you like chewy, creamy rice pudding, but are intolerant to lactose, you will love this recipe! A vegan, wholesome 'tummy friendly' blend of red rice, rice milk and coconut milk.

A good choice for those of us with Celiac disease, IBS, a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity. Best thing is its body nourishing but also extremely satisfying. Rice malt syrup takes the place of sugar, ideal for those with a sensitivity to fructose.

Its amazingly simple to make, stores well in the fridge (for about 2-3 days) and tastes great.

Red rice has a red husk and is usually eaten unhulled. It has a higher fibre content than white rice and takes a bit longer than white rice to cook. It has a dense, chewy texture which works well in this sweet pudding recipe.

I used a vanilla bean to flavour this rice pudding, but other flavours like orange, or rose extract would work well too.

So many different types of fruit pair well with rice pudding. I like strawberry and mango.

What toppings will you choose?

Notes before we get cooking!

FODMAP red, amber green rating reflects the total amount of Fructose (FTS), Lactose (L), Mannitol (M), Sorbitol (S), Galactooligosaccharide (GOS) and Oligos Fructans (FTA) in the TOTAL volume/weight of the ingredients used in the recipe.

This recipe makes approximately 6 servings of rice pudding (1 serving pictured).

I'm a big fan of simple recipes that don't need fancy equipment. For this recipe it does help to have a good heavy bottomed pan.
