This Brazilian Rice Pudding with Condensed Milk is creamy and delicious. The best thing is that it’s made in the slow cooker and you don’t need to be babysitting it! You’re welcome… 😉This recipe was created by me and my husband. More by him than me, actually. He’s a big fan of rice pudding, so we kept adjusting the recipe until it was just perfect for his taste, which by the day, is incredibly selective.
So you better believe that if he approved something, is because it’s really good!
We also completely went out of the box and created it using the slow cooker. Because… No one really wants to babysit rice pudding on the stove top, right? 🤷🏻♀️
Rice Pudding with Condensed Milk
No one is really sure if rice pudding was actually created in China or India. However, what I really do know for a fact is that rice pudding became popular in the whole entire Europe and the Portuguese people brought it over to Brazil.
Being from Brazil, I know that it’s an incredibly popular recipe over there. I also know that we LOVE some condensed milk in any and every dessert possible!
So as in any good Brazilian dessert, we made condensed milk the big star! The condensed milk gives this rice pudding recipe a special richness that could not have been achieved otherwise. I couldn’t be more excited to share this joint creation of mine and my husband’s with YOU!
Pro tips for making this Rice Pudding in the slow cooker
- Make sure to dump all the ingredients in, but leave the condensed milk out. Only add it to the slow cooker in the last half hour of cooking. This will guarantee the condensed milk doesn’t overcook, making the recipe too chewy. We’re trying to make it creamy, remember?
- Because you’re making it in the slow cooker, you don’t need to babysit it by any means. However, when it gets closer to the 4th hour, you’ll want to check it out every now and then to make sure it doesn’t overcook.
- When the rice is cooked, but still al dent, add the condensed milk and cook for 30 minutes more. Your Rice Pudding with Condensed Milk will be ready to be enjoyed.
- Make sure that once it’s ready, you remove from the slow cooker right away and move it to another container that is at room temperature. This will keep it from cooking any further so it doesn’t completely dry the milk.
