Have you ever wondered how to make rice pudding with jasmine rice? I love desserts. I’m not a huge fan of heavy, sweet desserts like cakes and cupcakes.  When I want dessert, I generally choose something egg-based or fruit-based. I’m even happier when it has both eggs and fruit in it.

How to Make Rice Pudding with Jasmine Rice

One of my favorite egg-based desserts is rice pudding.  Normally, when I make rice pudding, I start with plain white rice.  Why? It’s what my Mom always did when I was growing up. Recently, I heard of Jasmine Rice so I had to learn more. So, if you’re wondering how to make rice pudding with jasmine rice, keep reading!

Jasmine rice is a naturally aromatic rice from the high plateaus of Thailand.  Historically, jasmine rice was cultivated for the royalty of the kingdom of Siam.  When the rice is cooked, it is soft, white and fluffy. When cooked, jasmine rice has a slightly nutty aroma which made it the perfect choice for rice pudding. You are going to love this creamy jasmine rice pudding recipe!

What type should I start with?

Of course, if you prefer, you can start with traditional jasmine rice rather than the instant type of rice. But, if you are short on time instant rice is a great time saver.  Success Rice now offers a Jasmine Rice that is ready in ten minutes. Learn more about the different types of rice in this article.

I’m always looking for ways to speed up dinnertime without sacrificing quality so I decided that this was the way to go. The 10 Minute Success Rice Jasmine White Rice comes in a box.  The box contains 4 boil-in-bags of jasmine rice.  How to make rice pudding

This is a huge help with clean up time. I cannot tell you how many pans I have tossed because I burned rice in them. Multi-tasking at dinner time is not recommended. If you want something a little bit different try my Arroz con Leche or Mexican Rice Pudding recipe instead. It uses traditional white trice.

Creamy vanilla rice pudding

So, if you really love the taste of creamy vanilla rice pudding, you can add 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla extract when you make this. I generally prefer the taste of cinnamon in my rice pudding. But, if you’re wondering how to make rice pudding with jasmine rice that has a vanilla flavor, you can certainly modify it.

Stovetop rice pudding

This stovetop rice pudding is perfect for summertime. I really don’t like turning on the oven when it’s hot out. It’s hard enough to keep the house cool during the summer without making it worse. Once you know how to make rice pudding with jasmine rice on the stove, you won’t need to heat the kitchen up. So, if you’re wondering is rice pudding better hot or cold, it’s amazing both ways! I usually eat mine cold, but it’s just as good warm if that’s what you want.

Rice pudding with instant rice

If you don’t happen to have leftover rice from last night’s dinner, making rice pudding with instant rice is a great way to save time. I don’t have time to cook rice and then make dessert along with dinner. When I don’t have leftover rice, I can save time and still offer everyone a healthy dessert.

What can I do with soggy rice?

So, if you have soggy or sticky rice, you’re in luck. You can easily use it for rice pudding! You might want to check out my recipe for Mexican rice pudding. So, you can easily use sticky rice in place of cooking rice from scratch for this recipe. It’s a great way to use it up rather than tossing it. Or course, I like sticky rice so I am perfectly fine with adding some butter and salt and pepper to it and eating it for dinner.

So, if you’re looking for an easy healthy dessert, I hope that you’ll give this recipe a try. Don’t be afraid to experiment with it and make it your own. I’d love to try it with dried cranberries or even dehydrated berries of some kind. Let me know what you think!
