Slow Cooker Rice Pudding


– 1 cup pudding rice (Arborio rice)
– 4 cups whole milk
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– Optional: 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (or nutmeg)
– Optional toppings: raisins, chopped nuts, fruits, etc


1. Rinse the rice under cold water until the water runs clear. Drain well.
2. In a slow cooker, combine the rinsed rice, whole milk, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and salt. Stir well to combine.
3. Cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook on low heat for 3-4 hours. Stir occasionally to prevent the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pot.

4. After 3-4 hours, the rice pudding should be thick and creamy. If you prefer a thicker consistency, cook for an additional 30 minutes to 1 hour.

5. Once the rice pudding reaches your desired consistency, remove it from the heat.
6. Serve the rice pudding warm or chilled, and top with your favorite toppings such as raisins, chopped nuts, or a sprinkle of cinnamon.
