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!

Yep, no rice Janie :)  The chia seeds kind of act like "rice" though :)

Raw rice pudding

5 out of 5

This was so delicious! I was skeptical but it was exactly like the rice pudding/arroz con leche that I was craving! I used less raisins (I was almost out) and a scant 1/3 cup of chia seeds to ensure it would stay a bit thicker but it was so perfect. I will make this again and again.

I love your app. I try to eat a low-fat raw food diet, but your shopping list has 17 cups of nuts/seeds per week along with coconut oil and avocados. 10 cups of cashews per week can't be healthy for anyone. Please kindly consider creating a week plan for people on a low-fat raw food diet. Also, it would be great to have a daily menu with a shopping list or an option to create our own menus based on your recipes with a shopping list. Thank you :) Happy Holidays!

The fats that are in these foods are fats that are good for you. Infact some of them can and will help promote weight loss as long as you are eating them balanced. Some people cannot and do not need as much fat containing items. However, so it is up to them to figure out the proper amounts based on their metabolism and energy levels, dieticians and often your GP can help you figure out the right plan for your body type. eating raw food in general is eating real food so weight loss and inflammation loss is almost a gaurantee as long as you are not polluting your body with gross food. Also, the extensive research done on coconut oil is nothing short of amazing, it is nothing like any other oil out there it is among and in my opinion the best from keeping infection out and healing skin issues to healing you from the inside out to being used in dental hygene showing that it has cleaned up issues. I would kindly suggest you research that before you condemn it! Its amazing and it will not clog arteries it is an oil in a class of its own.! :) happy eating!

how many servings in this recipe? I see a serving is 7 oz. Do you think grated broccoli would substitute for the cashews, or what about almonds, walnuts? Cashews are an avoid for "O" blood type. thanks!

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!
