Pineapple Rice Pudding

I’ve been a big fan of rice pudding since my childhood. I remember visiting the local Chinese restaurant with my parents and one of the desserts on the buffet table was rice pudding. I’d always save some room to enjoy it. 

I talk to people and they either love it or hate it. I’m definitely team love. I’d eat rice pudding every day if my waist line would let me! Realistically, I like to make it every few months. A little indulgence for our family.

This particular rice pudding isn’t made like others you might have tried. It has no sugar. Instead, the sweetness comes from the addition of marshmallows and crushed pineapples. It’s SO EASY!

How to Make Pineapple Rice Pudding

The first step is to cook the rice. I used Uncle Ben’s converted rice that takes about 20 minutes to cook on the stovetop. 

Add the chopped marshmallows to the hot cooked rice. Stir until the marshmallows completely melt.

Add in the drained crushed pineapple and stir to combine.

Stir in whipped cream. 

Add to parfait dishes and chill in the fridge until it’s cold. 

To serve, sprinkle with cinnamon and add a maraschino cherry on top.

I had company over when I was making this recipe. Everyone said it was delicious – even the pineapple haters. The taste of pineapple isn’t overly strong. It’s just a light hint.

One time I made this dessert and I undercooked the rice. It ruined the whole thing. No one likes crunchy, sweet rice – ick! I’m always more careful now to make sure I properly cook the rice so the whole batch isn’t a waste.
