    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


    I really enjoyed this! I modified it by using vanilla almond milk so I did not add any more vanilla or sugar. About half way through I added dried cranberries and chopped walnuts. A fabulous and healthy desert!  -  08 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
