  • 2/3 cup long grain brown rice My favorite for this recipe is Lundberg Long Grain Brown Rice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unrefined sweetener In this recipe we used coconut palm sugar. Other alternatives are sucanat and honey.
  • 13 1/2 ounces lite coconut milk can
  • 1 2/3 cup milk low-fat
  • 2/3 cup raisins optional
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • Add rice, cinnamon and sugar to the slow cooker, stir to combine. Add both milks, stir to combine, cover and cook on low 3-4 hours, or until rice is tender and desired thickness has been reached. Just before turning off the slow cooker, add vanilla and raisins, stir to combine, cover and allow to set about 10 minutes after the slow cooker has been turned off. Add additional cinnamon and raisins for garnish.


Our rice was cooked in 3 1/2 hours on low and was more on the creamy side and not overly thick. Slow cookers cook differently, so check the pudding after 3 hours for doneness.
The fats in this recipe come primarily from coconut milk, which are healthy fats.

  2. I made it and the rice was still crunchy, and it was dry. I don't think it could have cooked it any longer.

  3. I tried to use Almond Breeze coconut/almond milk in the half gallon container and that does not work. It curdled, just passing this info on!

  4. I just made this and it's delicious!!! It took about 5 1/2 in my slow cooker on low. Stirred it a few times. My house smells amazing!

    1. We are so glad you enjoyed it, Jennie! That is also one of our favorites 🙂
      Let us know what else you try and love!

    1. Yes, you could. Be sure to taste as adding, because sometimes agave nectar is sweeter than sugar and so you may need to add less.

    1. Irene, Sure, soy or almond milk will work as well. Just be sure they aren’t fat-free as the won’t work so well in the slow cooker.

  5. Will the coconut milk make it taste coconutty? And will the honey measure the same as the sugar? Can honey be substituted with agave nectar?

    1. Jess, You will taste a little coconut, yes, but it's not that intense. Agave nectar can absolutely substitute the honey.

    1. Debra, We’ve only made this recipe with coconut milk, but it should work with almond milk too. Keep us posted! 🙂

  6. Like Lisa W, my rice was hard after 4 hours. I upped the temp from 225 to 350 and it’s improving, will be ready in about 5 1/2 hrs. Low temperature is not the same on all slow cookers and since I live at 7400′ above sea level, low temperature doesn’t cut it.

    1. Great question, Ann! You can use instant brown rice. Instead of cooking on low for 3 to 4 hours, only cook the rice on low for up to 2 hours.
