Easy Creamy Rice Pudding

This version of rice pudding is made on the stovetop, and is essentially a sweet risotto. Add as much warm milk as you need during the final cooking stages to achieve a consistency you like.

  • Servings: 4


  • 5 cups skim milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/2 cup Arborio rice
  • 1/4 cup Champagne or white grape juice
  • 1 tablespoon Demerara sugar or raw sugar


  1. In a saucepan, combine the milk, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg and heat over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Turn the heat to low to keep the mixture warm.

  2. In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Add the rice and stir to coat. Add the Champagne and cook, stirring until the liquid is absorbed. Ladle the milk into the rice 1/2 cup at a time, stirring with each new addition, about 35 minutes.

  3. Remove from the stove and stir in the remaining milk, if desired, to achieve a creamier consistency. Divide among dessert bowls and sprinkle with the Demerara sugar.
