I had some coconut cream instant pudding and tried it with that as suggested. Omitted the raisins as I don't care for them in my rice pudding. This was ok, but for some reason didn't seem sweet enough. I may try it again using vanilla pudding. Made for 2008 All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag.
For my family, this was just OK - to us it tasted just like what it was..rice mixed with instant pudding. It gets one extra star for preparation ease, but I will keep my old-fashioned rice pudding recipe. Thanks for posting!
I actually made this tonight, is is so quick and easy, but I found that with one package of pudding it could have used more rice, I guess personal preference, so I boiled 2 more cups of milk and added in 1-3/4 instead of 2 cups of minute rice, then added it into the pudding mix, it was thicker with the added rice. If anyone is looking for a very quick and easy dessert recipe this is a great, thanks mandabears!...Kittencal:)
This is going in the 20 stars file!!! I made this with s/f vanilla pudding, no raisins, already cooked brown rice (dietary constraints) that I warmed with the milk, and added cinnamon. The taste was out of this world. Wonderful recipe and my A #1 Rice Pudding recipe from now on! Not to mention it was Flat Fast & Easy!!!
