Do You Eat Rice Pudding Hot Or Cold

You can eat rice pudding hot or cold. It is all about your personal preference.

We tend to eat it warm when it is first cooked, and then toss it in the fridge for later. Then when we spoon it out once chilled, we just eat it cold. 

Now, this is a thick rice pudding recipe, so you can add in extra milk or cream to help thin it out if you need to help thin it out once it has fully chilled.

Hey Cathey! If you have a larger instant pot there should be no issue doubling the recipe.

As a child I hated rice pudding. I decided to try this recipe because it had condensed milk in the ingredients. This is good. I will definitely cook it again.

Do you have to use the sweet condensed milk? I’m lactose intolerant and would substitute lactose free milk for the milk.

@Kelsey, Instead of raisins you can use golden raisins and dried cherries. They have a different flavor. Instead of adding all the sugar, use less then top with pie filling like apple or cherry. When doing this, I prefer to serve hot.

You could use a lactose milk if you wanted, it would take away some of the creaminess and you would want to probably add some sugar in to help sweeten it up. Then if you needed make a cornstarch slurry at the end to stir in to try and help thicken it. I can't say it for sure will all be perfect on flavor since the sweetened condensed gives it sweetness, but good luck if you try!
