A chocolatey and vegan twist on traditional Arroz con Leche.
This recipe is inspired by on the of most popular recipes on the blog—Arroz con Leche.
Chocolate Arroz con Leche is the perfect dessert to make during the cooler months. It is also a great treat for breakfast.
This Chocolate Arroz con Leche is rich, creamy, and not overly sweet.
There are two types of chocolate used in this Arroz con Leche. The combination of Mexican chocolate and cocoa powder make this arroz con leche extra chocolatey.
In my original Arroz con Leche recipe, I used a cashew cream to make the rice pudding creamy. Even though it’s fairly easy to make the cashew cream, it can take a little longer to make since you have to soak the cashews. I wanted this chocolate rice pudding to be even easier, so I used coconut cream to create a luscious and creamy rice pudding. I also really like the combination of coconut and chocolate together.
To infuse extra flavor into the Chocolate Arroz con Leche, the rice is cooked with strips of orange zest and a cinnamon stick.
I love the combination of chocolate, orange and cinnamon together.
This is the perfect easy dessert to make on a chilly, cold night.
