Sticky Date Rice Pudding

Sticky Date Rice Pudding

Check out Lydia Bates and her Sticky Date Rice Pudding recipe… why? I challenged her to make a pudding for someone like me (who doesn’t do wheat, dairy, refined sugar)—full back story on her blog post.


  • Pudding rice (about 1oz per person)
  • Rice milk (about 1/2 pint per person, and you could, of course, replace it with soya milk, or cows milk if you prefer)
  • Coconut Cream (about 15g per person, or ‘a good squeeze’ out of one of the Pataks sachets)
  • Tamarind Paste (1 teaspoon)
  • Honey (2 teaspoons)
  • And a handful of dates, chopped


  • 1. First, soak the dates in some hot water for a couple of minutes, then drain the water away
  • 2. Now combine all the ingredients in a saucepan, bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the liquid has been absorbed, the rice is cooked and you are left with a pan of sticky gooey yummyness

Thank you Lydia, will definitely give it a try.
