The rice pudding revival: Recipes to make your mouth water

According to trendsetters, the humble rice pudding is having a renaissance!

Many people will recall warm, milky rice pudding as a comfort food from their childhood. However, despite recently viewed as a bit of a retro dish, rice pudding is receiving a modern makeover!

With wellness fads continuing to increase in popularity, rice pudding is no longer just enjoyed with white rice but with other grains like quinoa, chia and even cauliflower rice, and is often served with coconut milk for that irresistible tropical taste.

In fact, the traditional British rice pudding is becoming more subject to its international influences, with India, Iran, Portugal and South-East Asia all offering up various versions of a rice pudding.

The combination of these factors and the steady Instagram foodie scene means you'll probably see your favourite social media stars snapping rice puddings, complete with an array of colourful fruits and edible flowers.

If you love rice pudding, but haven't made it at home before, you'll be pleased to know it's quite easy. 

Below we've gathered some recipes to help guide you towards the most delicious - and apparently trendy - breakfast and dessert.
