Creamy, dreamy, and bursting with sweetness and a hint of cinnamon! This luscious vegan rice pudding is easy to make and delicious hot or cold. You'd never guess it was dairy-free!
Place the non-dairy milk, coconut milk, rice, raisins, maple syrup, vanilla, orange zest, cinnamon, and nutmeg into a large pot.
Stir the ingredients together and place the pot over medium heat.
Bring the liquid to a boil.
Lower the heat and allow the mixture to cook at a low simmer, stirring occasionally and scraping the bottom of the pot with a spoon to remove any rice that sticks.
Allow the mixture to cook for about 20 minutes, or until it reaches your desired thickness.
Remove the pot from the heat.
Stir in the vegan butter, if using, and salt.
Taste test and add more maple syrup if desired. Adjust any other seasonings to your liking.
Let the pudding cool for a bit. Chill for later or serve warm.
