Dried Mango Rice Pudding

I had bought a large bag of dried mangoes from Costco. I know many folks love them but I just cannot eat them plain. They just have an odd smell to me. But if I cook with them I love them. Oddly enough in a slow cooked rice pudding they come to have the texture of dried peaches!

Dried Mango Rice Pudding


  • ½ cup uncooked white basmati rice (or long grain rice)
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup chopped dried mangoes
  • 4 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • ¼ tsp dried powdered ginger
  • ¼ tsp fine sea salt


Preheat the oven to 325°.

Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl, transfer to a 1½ to 2 quart baking dish.

Bake uncovered for 2 to 2½ hours, stirring every 30 minutes.

The rice should be tender with sauce left – if you over bake it will become very thick. As the pudding cools down, the sauce will thicken up into a pudding. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator.




  1. So simple, yet so incredibly delicious. Mango is just to die for.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
