Almond Spice Rice Pudding from Leftover Rice

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by MissLinguist

I just made up this recipe. I had a lot of leftover jasmine rice, and decided to try an experiment. My mom used to make rice pudding from leftovers all the time, but I added my own flavors for this one. The quantities are approximate, and you can modify according to your taste or according to the amount of leftover rice you have.

I didn't have flax seeds or almond extract, but I made this with coarse ground almonds, agave instead of sugar, nonfat milk, and raisins. It was easy, satisfying, and tasty!
