Very nice. Filling and tasty on a cold, snowy day. I used Diamond Almond Milk (hint of honey & vanilla) since I am trying to use less dairy products. Adjusted sugar & vanilla portions accordingly. - 03 Jan 2015


Oh my goodness this is divine! I eat a lot of rice for digestive issues so get bored quickly with rice pudding. This is a perfect, light alternative. I'm looking forward to cold leftovers for breakfast! Many thanks for the recipe! - 06 Nov 2013
