August 18, 2021
Creamy and delicious milk rice pudding with self-made hazelnut milk! This hazelnut milk is super easy to make at home and gives the rice pudding the most amazing nougaty flavour. Serve it with a hazelnut caramel sauce that you can prepare in no-time and enjoy a fabulous dessert.
750 ml water
3 tbsp hazelnut butter
200 g milk rice
½ tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Pinch of cinnamon
1 cardamom pod
2 tbsp rice or agave syrup
2 tbsp agave syrup
½ tsp hazelnut butter
Pinch of cinnamon
1 handful fresh fruit of your choice
To make the hazelnut milk, simply put the water and hazelnut butter in a mixer and blend until smooth. For a richer and creamier milk, add 2-3 more tablespoons of hazelnut butter. The plant milk is ready!
In a small pot add the rice and about 600ml of the hazelnut milk and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat to very low and add the spices and sweetener. Let the pudding simmer covered for about 20-25 minutes and stir often so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pot. Add the rest 150 ml of hazelnut milk as the pudding thickens, depending on the creaminess you want to achieve.
Once the pudding is thick and creamy and the rice is very soft, remove from the heat and discard the cardamom pod.
In a small container mix the agave syrup with the hazelnut butter and the cinnamon to make a sweet sauce. Serve the rice pudding in 4 small bowls and top with fruit and the sauce.
