Cinnamon Spiced Breakfast Rice Pudding

(This post may have affiliate links. Please see my disclosure.)

So. You have a pot of leftover rice from last night’s dinner just cooling off in the fridge. Well, aren’t you going to do something with it?

 I’m thinking cinnamon-spiced breakfast rice pudding, also known as “arroz dulce.”

I bet when you think of breakfast, you’re definitely not thinking about leftover rice. I get it. Your normal bowl of oatmeal or your riskier bowl of breakfast lentils seems a little more…reasonable. However, don’t discount the magic that rice can bring to the breakfast table. 

Not only are you utilizing leftovers and minimizing food waste, but you’re also preparing a very cheap breakfast loaded with robust flavors and a kind warmness to it. 

Ready to blow your mind with a cinnamon-spiced breakfast rice pudding? Let’s get to it. 

Cinnamon Spiced Breakfast Rice Pudding

Course: Breakfast, Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: Rice Pudding


  • 2 cups cooked white rice
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup water


  • In a pot over medium heat, combine the cooked rice, maple syrup, raisins, vegan milk, water, and cinnamon. 
  • Mix all the ingredients well. 
  • As soon as the rice mix begins to bubble, reduce the heat to low. 
  • Stir frequently and simmer for about 7 minutes, or until most of the liquid has been absorbed. 
  • Serve your breakfast rice pudding in bowls and top with nuts (optional) for an extra crunch.


  1. You can use any type of vegan milk for this recipe. I opted for coconut milk for its creaminess. 
  2. If you’re not into maple syrup, feel free to use any other sweetener of choice. 
  3. If you want your rice pudding to be sweeter, add more sugar or raisins.
  4. Add more or less milk/water, depending on how thick/soup-y you like it.
  5. This recipe yields about 3 servings.
