how to make dairy free rice pudding that tastes like dairy?
I crave rice pudding all year long, but hardly make it because I can't find a dairy alternative (lactose intolerant) that satisfies my tastebuds. I'm perfectly fine with soy and almond milk in cereals, but when I use them with rice pudding recipes, they don't taste very good. I've also tried So Delicious coconut milk and that doesn't taste so great, either. Can anyone recommend a non dairy milk that tastes like dairy in rice pudding? Thanks for any suggestions.
why not just use lactose-free milk?
or have you tried rice milk? it's the blandest of the non-dairy milk alternatives so it doesn't contribute as much of a noticeable flavor as soy or almond. oat milk might be another option.
Thanks, all. As for lactose free milk, I don't like the taste. I could try the canned coconut milk next. jerirl, if you have your grandmother's recipe for Puerto Rican rice pudding, please share. And yes, I completely forgot about mimiccreme. Could give that a try, too. Again, thank you all for getting back to me. Much appreciated!
