Vegan Black Rice Pudding

This is one of my favorite Indonesian desserts. Its Black Rice Rice Pudding, but with a Vegan twist. Find the ingredients list and directions below. After you finish cooking this dessert, leave me a comment and tell me how you liked it.


  • 2 cup Indonesian black rice
  • 20 oz can full-fat coconut milk
  • 3 cups water *reduce to 1 cup for Instant Pot
  • a pinch of salt
  • 4 Tbsp coconut sugar or other sweetener (see notes)
  • diced banana, coconut chips, and hemp hearts for garnish



  • Combine the black rice, coconut milk in a medium-sized pot (reserve a couple of Tbsp for drizzling if you like) salt, and 3 cups water.
  • Bring to a boil then reduce the temperature to low and simmer covered until the rice is tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed. Give it a good stir since this will take about an hour, and check on the cooking progress every once in a while.
  • When rice is cooked, remove from the heat, then stir in one Tbsp of your chosen sweetener, and taste. You may or may not want to add another.


  • Mix the black rice, coconut milk, coconut sugar, and 1 cup of water in the Instant Pot.
  • Seal the Instant Pot, and set to Manual (High pressure for 22 minutes).
  • When the pressure cooking cycle has finished, let the steam release naturally for 10 minutes, then flip to quickly release the rest of the steam.
  • Remove the lid and stir the rice pudding .
  • You can serve it hot, warm, or cold drizzled with a bit of extra coconut milk.
