Gluten-Free Peruvian Rice Pudding

Serves 4

This gluten-free Peruvian rice pudding dessert can be easily customized by adding raisins, nuts, vanilla and more along with the condensed milk.


  • ¾ cup uncooked rice
  • 1½ cups water
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 4 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon


Place the rice and water in a medium pot. Bring the water to boil and simmer for about 20 minutes. When the water is mostly gone, add the milk. Continue to cook over low heat and mix often until the milk is well absorbed. Add the condensed milk and cinnamon. Mix well and place in the refrigerator for two hours. Serve cold.
