Tropical Rice pudding

It’s Hump Day, I hope your week is going well after the long weekend. 🙂 I don’t think I’ve had rice pudding since I was a kid. I never really liked rice growing up, it was what my mom made for dinner when we had no other food left in the house. I did however like her rice pudding, she would make it with maple syrup and raisins and it was delicious. I saw a photo online of rice pudding recently and thought I should try making it myself. To be honest, my first attempt was a complete fail! I was using a method I found with pre-cooked rice and eggs, where you bake it in the oven….I’m not sure where I went wrong but the end result looked like throw up. So I started from scratch again, I  found a cooking method that works and is very simple. Don’t worry this recipe is the bomb! 😉 You don’t even have to feel guilty eating it, because it’s super clean and healthy!
