Breakfast, dessert or an anytime snack, this low-FODMAP Lemon Vanilla Rice Pudding is fresh and surprising. It has a creamy texture and amazing flavor that everyone will love (dare I say it tastes like a fruity breakfast cereal?)  Plus it is vegan and gluten-free.

Low-FODMAP Creamy Lemon Vanilla Rice Pudding; Gluten-free, Vegan

Although this recipe has not been lab tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients (using available FODMAP data at time of posting)

Serves 4

Prep time: 10 minutes

Bake time: 1.5 hours

Bake 250 F


  • 1 medium lemon, zested
  • 1/4 cup jasmine rice, or other rice
    • Jasmine rice has a pleasant texture, beautiful flavor and a lower glycemic index than shorter grained rice, so I prefer to use this
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (or 1/2 a vanilla bean, pod split and beans scraped out)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (for vegan version) or 2% lactose-free milk
  • 1 cup coconut cream (canned)
  • Garnish: low-FODMAP Lemon Sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 250°F
  • Zest the lemon completely
  • Mix the zest with rice, sugar, and salt in a 9-inch pie dish (or other oven-safe casserole dish)
  • Stir in the milk and coconut cream
  • Stir in vanilla
  • Bake uncovered for about 1.5 hours, stirring halfway through
  • Once cooked remove from oven, it will thicken as it cools
  • Can be enjoyed warm or chilled
  • Garnish with low-FODMAP lemon sugar, lemon zest or sugared lemon peel

  • Bright and lemony flavor with that rich vanilla taste…

  • Low-FODMAP Lemon Vanilla Rice Pudding is creamy and delicious!
