Slow Cooker Rice Pudding Recipe
This slow cooker rice pudding recipe was a last minute recipe idea. In fact, we never planned to make it, but we are so glad we did.
We were updating our instant pot rice pudding recipe and were in the kitchen chatting and wondering how it would compare if we made the exact same instant pot recipe, but in the slow cooker instead.
10 minutes later we had both instant pot rice pudding cooking and slow cooker rice pudding cooking.
Side by side like two peas in a pod and the Milner kitchen smelt of beautiful old fashioned rice pudding.
Imagine how your grandma made rice pudding and this is what you get when you cook a slow cooker rice pudding.
Today, I wanted to show you just how simple it is to make a creamed rice pudding in the slow cooker. Though be warned this is a big portion of rice pudding and will feed your family for days.
Can You Cook Rice Pudding In A Slow Cooker?
Yes, you can! This slow cooker rice pudding recipe is amazing. The ingredients are simple everyday ingredients, and you can load it all into the slow cooker and let the slow cooker do the hard work.
Its not completely set and forget like many slow cooker recipes though.
You will need to stir it every 45 minutes.
Rice Pudding In Slow Cooker With Milk
There is often a lot of talk of what you use in your slow cooker rice pudding. Some will use condensed milk, others will use coconut milk, some will use cream, and many will use evaporated milk.
In the Milner’s we love our rice pudding in the slow cooker with milk.
Just your regular milk carton can give a wonderful, creamed rice pudding.
Risotto Rice Pudding In Slow Cooker
Others will want to know what rice to use when making rice pudding. Many refer to it as pudding rice. But really pudding rice is the same as risotto rice. Just grab a bag of risotto rice from your local supermarket and use that when making rice pudding.
Also, often rice labelled as risotto rice is cheaper than brands that sell it as pudding rice.
Vanilla Rice Pudding In Slow Cooker
We love to add vanilla to our rice pudding, and it gives it a lovely flavour. But what we found is that vanilla rice pudding cooked in the slow cooker was more flavoursome than the instant pot.
This is because the slow cooker keeps the flavour and is not diluted like a pressure cooker is.
If you don’t like vanilla rice pudding as much as us, I would recommend halving the vanilla.

Nearly every slow cooker recipe I do requires 4 hours on high. Like it’s the standard time for all slow cooker recipes.
I was expecting rice pudding to be less than this as rice often doesn’t take long. But we had a big batch of rice pudding and we needed to cook it for 5 hours on high to get it spot on.
