This twist on a classic dessert is simple to make but decadent in taste. For a splash of color and a nutrient boost, top with chopped oranges, strawberries or blueberries.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup white rice, uncooked
  • 2½ cups low-fat milk divided
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 (3 4 ounces) package Jell-O vanilla flavored instant pudding mix
  • cinnamon optional

Directions

In a medium saucepan, add 1½ cups water and rice; bring to a boil. Stir once and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is cooked. Add 2 cups of milk and sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring often until creamy, about 15 minutes.

Stir in remaining ½ cup milk, egg yolk and pudding. Cook on low heat, stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired. Serve warm.
