Cinnamon Brown Rice Pudding with Almond Milk | Sweet Remedy | | @Sweet_Remedy

Rice pudding is so easy to make I’m not really sure why I waited so long! My mom loves it and Joe’s mom loves it so why haven’t I made it for these wonderful ladies yet? I decided that I needed to make some but I only had almond milk and brown rice on hand. I figured that would be fine and went with it.

Brown rice is healthier anyway!

I really wanted to add dried figs and maple in the mix but I decided this time I would stick to cinnamon since I was making it for other people. Next time I’ll experiment with some flavor combinations. Doesn’t fig and maple sound pretty great?

During the slow boil, I was afraid that the milk was going to curdle so I had the heat on low. Too low because  it took absolutely forever for the milk to cook down and thicken the rice. When I say forever, I really mean FOR-EV-ER!  I hope some of you get the reference here. Extra points if you knew what I was referencing without clicking the YouTube link!

I brought these bowls filled with pudding over to Joe’s for dessert and they were promptly devoured after dinner. I left some for my mom, who didn’t even bother to eat it.

If you don’t like raisins, feel free to omit them or eat around them. I won’t be offended.
