Our kids love rice pudding for dessert (when we actually offer a sugary dessert) and we can feel good about the calcium boost and some extra calories after super active days. This is wholesome and delicious for the entire family.

Cardamom Spiced Red Rice Pudding

Please try to use all organic ingredients:

2 cups cooked Red Jasmine Rice (we used Whole Trade Alter Eco Coral Red Jasmine Rice)

2 cups milk (we used organic Vitamin D milk)

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup sugar (recipe calls for 1/2 cup, but I used less and it was still delicious)

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp ground cardamom

1/2 cup raisins (optional, but we love it with raisins)

Serves 4-6

Place cooked rice in a saucepan and add milk. Heat to boiling. Lower heat to a simmer and cook, covered 20-25 minutes or until milk is mostly absorbed. Increase heat to medium, add cream, sugar, vanilla, cardamom and raisins (if desired). Continue to cook until the mixture just begins to thicken again, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to individual serving dishes. Serve warm, chilled or at room temperature.
