Love Puddin’


I know “Love Puddin'” sounds like something you’d affectionately call your extra stomach fat, but bear with me. The following is the best recipe for rice pudding or love puddin’, as I like to call it. It’s so good, you’ll be calling it love puddin’ in no time.

2 cups of cooked rice
2 cups of milk (I use almond milk, but soy or dairy milk will work.)
1/2 cup of sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons of butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
a dash of cinnamon
strawberries, raisins or whatever fruit you prefer to sprinkle on top

Step 1: Stir the cooked rice, 1 & 1/2 cups of milk and the 1/2 cup of sugar together in a sauce pan on the stove over low heat.
Step 2: Leave on low heat for 15 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes.
Step 3: After 15 minutes the rice, milk and sugar will come together. Then, add the last 1/2 cup of milk and a beaten egg to the mixture. Stir the milk and eggs into the rice quickly or you will have bits of scrambled egg in the rice!
Step 4: Add the butter and vanilla extract.
Step 5: Sprinkle with cinnamon and garnish with strawberries, raisins or your fruit of choice.
Step 6: Enjoy your love puddin’ with the one you love! Or eat it all by yourself, I don’t judge. It’s good warm or cold!

    Oooh! I cannot wait to try this… I’ll probably make some tomorrow morning and take some leftovers to college with me so I can try it warm AND cold. 🙂 MMM.

        Well, I didn’t get to make it this morning because I discovered we were out of milk (and I had already overslept anyway) so I’m going to shoot for making it sometime this week instead. LOL I will let you know how it turns out though!

        Well, I tried it the other day but I didn’t have enough butter, so it didn’t turn out exactly right I don’t think, but it was AMAZING!
