Vegan Chia & Rice Pudding

Vegan Chia Seed Rice Pudding

I’ve been in a really rice pudding mood lately. I’ve also been in a really I-don’t-want-to-get-a-stomach-ache mood. Therefore, a heavy cream pudding was not about to be in my future. But how can you make a pudding-like, delicious dessert, without the likes of half-and-half? As Mandy Moore once said, “Have a little faith in meeeeeeeeeee.” Sorry.

To the Asian section of your local grocery store! You’re going to need condensed coconut milk.

I also added chia seeds for some extra omega-3 goodness.
