My 6 year old loves to help me make Rice Pudding. She loves it for breakfast, a snack, dessert, or even to bring along for her school lunch.
It is easy to make so I thought I would share our recipe with you.
You will need:
- 2 cups short grain rice
- 2 Liters whole milk (you can use almond milk or coconut milk as a substitute)
- 3/4 cup raisins (optional)
- 1/2 cup sugar (we use Xylitol)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
Put rice in a heavy pot and cover and add just enough water to cover the rice. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring regularly till water is mostly evaporated.
Add the milk and keep stirring and cooking over medium heat. Once it starts to thicken, add the raisins, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon and keep stirring till it is thickened (to a yogurt like consistency).
Serve warm and enjoy.
We like to keep it in the fridge and warm it up when needed. It thickens more once it is cold so you will have to add more milk when you warm it up.
It is a favorite in our home!
