Arroz con Leche (Rice Pudding)

IMG_0120 IMG_0127

This arroz con leche recipe is completely vegan!! (Even though it literally means “rice with milk”) It is also free from refined sugar, and has a low glycemic index.

I made this recipe a few months ago, and I just wanted to throw it up on the site right now. I took pictures late at night, so they’re not very good. The pudding was good though. It’s quite easy to make, and relatively  healthy for a dessert. I’m working on a post about diets and our g-g-generation, so look out for that if that’s interesting to you.

Servings: 3

Cost per serving: $1.90

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c of uncooked, medium-grain rice
  • 1 c water
  • 3 c Unsweetened Almond milk
  • one cinammon stick
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 2.5 T stevia

To make:

  1. Rinse the rice
  2. Place rice, water, and almond milk in a pan and bring to a boil
  3. Once it boils, add the cinnamon, cover it and let it simmer on low for about 20-30 minutes. It’s ok if you let some steam escape and stir it because your’e not trying to make perfect little rice grains.
  4. Add the cloves, stevia and agave nectar.
  5. Eat, eat, eat

Substitutions:

  • If you’re not vegan, you can always add a bit of sweetened condensed milk instead of the stevia.
  • You could just use regular vanilla almond milk, and that would be enough sweetness.
  • You can substitute almond milk for soy or coconut milk if you want to keep it vegan, but I think almond milk is the richest.
