    HokiesMom's Note:

    I can say this is heart healthy because I found this recipe in the American Heart Associations Healthy Recipes booklet. I love the taste of this pudding! The first time I tried to make rice pudding when I was a teen it came out looking like a form of cement - needless to say I've improved and this recipe is now a favorite.

      I used vanilla soy milk in this, so I skipped the vanilla and only used about 1 Tblsp of sugar as the milk has sugar in it. I think I could have added a little more sugar though as it was not quite sweet enough. This is easy to make and made a nice addition to out Sunday brunch. Thanks for the recipe.

      This was very easy to do even though I had to stir a lot. But it was worth it. Great taste. And healthy! Thanks Melissa :) Made for Market tag

      Almost 4 1/2 stars. This has really good flavour. I loved the lemon and cinnamon in this! But like another reviewer I found the texture off. It seemed like it needed to be cooked longer with more milk maybe. I used rice milk for the nonfat milk to be dairy free (I have had no problem doing so in other rice pudding recipes) I used white Basmati rice and brown sugar which I would do again. If you don't watch it the high temperature does make it overflow. If it could be made a bit softer I may make it again. Made for Potluck Tag Fall 2009.
