Rice Pudding


A creamy, often well-tolerated, high-calorie pudding that works as a great dessert for those needing to add protein and calories to their daily intake. For those requiring a lower fat alternative, reduced-fat milk may be substituted. Non-dairy, lactose-free options like soy, rice, or almond milk can work as well. Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 cups of whole milk, reduced-fat milk, or non-dairy alternative
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 3/4 cups of long grain white or brown rice
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup dried fruit of your choice (optional)
  • Cinnamon or nutmeg for sprinkling on top (optional)
  • Tip: for extra cinnamon flavor, boil rice with a cinnamon stick added to the water
