My Black Rice Pudding with Spiced Stewed Plums is my healthy spin on a typical sugar filled rice pudding and it has a purple twist! This creamy coconut rice pudding is made with black rice which gives it a stunning purple colour and topped with warm spiced prune plums for a delicious treat!
Ingredients
  • Rice Pudding:
  • ½ cup black rice (find in the bulk section at planet organic & community foods)
  • 1 14oz. can lite coconut milk
  • 1¾ cups almond/coconut milk blend (I use Dream Blends unsweetened Almond/Coconut Milk)
  • 2 tbsp golden raisins
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 pods cardamom or (1/4 tsp ground cardamom)
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Stewed Plums:
  • 6-8 prune plums (or plums of choice) pitted & halved
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup (I use ED Smith no sugar added Maple Syrup)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 pods cardamom or (1/4 tsp ground cardamom)
  • 2 whole cloves
  • ¾ vanilla pod, seeded or (2 tsp vanilla extract)
Instructions
  1. Heat a deep saute pan over medium/high heat & add all ingredients for pudding except raisins.
  2. Bring the milk and rice to a boil then turn down heat over medium/low and allow to simmer.
  3. Add raisins half way through cooking.
  4. Stir frequently until the rice is chewy and you have a pudding texture, approximately 25-30 minutes, don't overcook it or your rice will absorb all the liquid.
  5. Approximately 15 minutes into the rice pudding cooking, add all ingredients into a separate pan for stewed plums over medium heat.
  6. Allow plums to cook down, be careful not to break them down too much, approximately 10-15 minutes.
  7. Once they are stewed down and created a syrup, remove the cardamom pods & cloves and remove from heat.
  8. Your rice should be done at this time, remove cardamom pods. Spoon that lovely dark rice pudding into a bowl and top off with stewed plum mixture and some syrup, enjoy!
