Rice Pudding

Recipe Information
Made in crock pot

Prickly Pear

Serves/Makes:4 or more

  • 1 cup (225 ml) raw converted rice
  • 2-1/2 cups (600 ml) milk
  • 2/3 cup (150 ml) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) nutmeg
  • lemon zest from 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) vanilla
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) heavy cream of half and half, chilled
  • Place all the ingredients, except the cream, in the slow cooker and stir once.
  • Cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours.
  • Serve lukewarm with chilled cream or half & half.
I like to increase the vanilla to 1-1/2 t. and you could, depending on your taste, substitute the lemon with 1/2 t. almond extract. Then serve the rice pudding topped with the cream and sprinkled with toasted almond slices for a change of pace.
