You can use homemade oat milk (just 2 ingredients: oats + water, follow my 5-minute recipe for homemade oat milk here!) or a store bought oat milk. Either works fine!
This oat milk rice pudding recipe is a fantastic pantry-staple meal! It uses almost all ingredients you would have in your dry pantry or cupboards.

What’s In This Rice Pudding With Oat Milk?
- Arborio Rice: classic risotto rice. It’s a thick short rice that soaks up a LOT of liquid, making the pudding super creamy without adding any dairy. Make sure you use classic arborio rice for this recipe – jasmine or basmati rice will work but not be as thick and creamy.
- Oat Milk: which you can make yourself with some water and old fashioned oats, steel cut oats, or rolled oats – NOT quick cooking ones. Old Fashtioned Oats are the perfect texture – I use Bob’s Red Mill variety because they are certified gluten free. You can also use store bought oat milk, but try to use unsweetened. If you use a sweet or vanilla flavored oat milk, then halve the amount of sugar in this dish to start. You can always add more sugar later.
- Granulated Sugar: I like this organic sugar for my recipes, it has a really nice flavor in this pudding, I’d recommend Anthony’s organic sugar for baking.
- Cinnamon: which gives this pudding a classic warm flavor! I stir a little in the pudding while it is cooking, and then sprinkle a bit for garnish on top.
- Pink Himalayan Sea Salt: I like to use a pink Himalayan Sea Salt in my kitchen, which has more natural minerals than plain processed table salt. It’s fairly inexpensive, so I’d recommend this salt if you’re looking for an easy way to level up your spice pantry.
- Vanilla Extract: it’s super important to use real pure vanilla extract, and not artificial baking vanilla flavor. This real all natural vanilla is a fantastic ingredient to give these cookies an #extra boost.
