Recipe Directions

  • 1. Put all ingredients (except the chia seeds and the raisins) in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
  • 2. Place chia seeds and raisins in a large bowl. Pour the blended mixture on top of the chia seeds and rasins, mixing slowly and thoroughly.
  • 3. Cover raw rice pudding mixture and refrigerate for at least one hour. The purpose of refrigerating and letting the mixture sit for at least an hour is to allow the chia seeds to absorb the liquid. (Chia seeds are similar to tapioca. They increase in size!) Ideally, let this recipe sit in fridge for 3 hours. Overnight is even better!
  • 4. Stir thoroughly before serving.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Oh dear, another raw rice pudding recipe. I am starting to get a reputation as the type of girl who only eats chia pudding, lol.

Well, since I've discovered this raw rice pudding, the fact is true. I don't even need to leave the house as long as I have a batch of this old-fashioned rice pudding on hand!

This recipe really does taste like the traditional rice pudding that you may have had as a child growing up, complete with the plump raisins.

Let me know how this raw rice pudding recipe compares with what you're used to!

Hi Linda!

This recipe makes about 4 servings. Grated broccoli is NOT a good substitution for cashews in this recipe (bad flavor)!! Can you do macadamia nuts? Those would work instead :)

(The cashews/macadamia nuts are needed to supply creaminess to the recipe.)

No macadamia either, could do almonds or walnuts blanched, do you think either or both of these would work?

Hi Linda, No, almonds will be too gritty and walnuts aren't quite right either.

Instead of the cashews, you can do 1 large banana instead, it will change the flavor about, but it will give you the creaminess that you need.

Hope this helps!

I read I can substitute amaranth in place of the rice. Do you think this would work with amaranth instead and omitting cashews?
Thanks

Hi Jessica, you will definitely need the cashews. So don't omit the cashews or the chia seeds no matter what else you add

I am learning about raw foods to keep grains out of our diet so the rice flakes would not work for that although a good idea for others.

Raw rice pudding is delish! I put some into serving size containers in the freezer. I discovered the last one yesterday, after about two months. It was still wonderful! I'm making some more right away!

Love this recipe as a pudding. By accident (I put in too liitle water) and found it makes a great spread on bagels.

Hi! I just got into raw food recently, i'm living in India which sometimes makes it more difficult as many things are not available here. But wanted to know if you actually ever heard of Poha ? It's rice flakes out of raw rice which you just have to soak to become soft and eatable. Not sure if you get them in america, but probably in indian shops. Just wonder why no one is using Poha in their raw food recipes..
