Chrissy Teigen’s Creamy Rice Pudding Recipe

Chrissy Teigen is known for her outgoing personality and her cooking skills in the kitchen. Recently, her rice pudding recipe popped up online for people to try out, and it’s a quick recipe for anyone who enjoys rice pudding or just wants to give it a try. This recipe can be whipped up in just over thirty minutes!

Here are the ingredients that you will need in order to complete this recipe: 5 1/3 cups whole milk (plus a little more if you want to)
1 cup heavy cream (plus a little more if you want to)
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (plus more for sprinkling)
1 cup rice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon orange zest
Small piece of a chocolate bar (you can pop it in a fridge or freezer to chill for an extra bit of crunch)
Generous pinch fine sea salt


Here are the directions you need to make this quick dish.

  • Combine 5 cups of the milk, cream, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a gentle boil over medium-low heat (make sure to watch it because that milk can boil over fast!)
  • Stir in the rice, return to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring often, until the rice releases its starch and the mixture has thickened, 30 minutes (the pudding will continue to thicken as it cools).
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and orange zest. Press foil, plastic wrap, or parchment paper on the surface of the pudding and let it come to room temperature, about 30 minutes (or chill for an hour or two if you like cold rice pudding).
  • Stir in the remaining 1/3 cup of milk to loosen, and feel free to add more milk or cream to get the consistency you want. Divide among bowls, grate some chocolate and orange zest over the pudding, and sprinkle with cinnamon if you like.
