Ingredients

Using basmati rice adds a special fragrance to rice pudding. This is a true comfort food that warms the heart and definitely the soul. Try serving this rice pudding with other favourite fruits like strawberries or peaches.

3 cups (750 mL) enriched vanilla soy or rice beverage or milk
1/2 cup (125 mL) basmati rice
3 tbsp (45 mL) granulated sugar
1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla
1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cinnamon or cardamom
1 mango, peeled and thinly sliced

Preparation

  1. In heavy saucepan bring soy beverage and rice to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and cover and cook for about 30 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Stir in sugar, vanilla and cinnamon.
  2. Divide into custard cups and top with sliced mango.

DID YOU KNOW?

Bone is a living tissue, that is constantly renewing and repairing itself from everyday wear and tear.  However, like many nutrients, calcium is absorbed less effectively as we age.  Try out our calcium calculator to see if you are getting enough in your daily diet.
