Heart Healthy Cinnamon Rice Pudding

Heart Healthy Cinnamon Rice Pudding created by Boomette

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.

    This had great flavor. The cinnamon and lemon really go well together. My only problem with it was the cooking time. Mine took about 45 minutes and could have cooked even longer, but it was starting to dry out. The rice was a little too al dente. I used Arborio as called for. Maybe cooking at a lower temperature for longer would help. Made for ZWT8

    Great flavors without being to sweet, I like the creamy texture that wasn't to dry and the use of the aborio rice made a nice differance from plan white rice - I love rice pudding and this is a very nice version that I enjoyed. The only thing I did differant was to cut the recipe in half for me and DH. Made for ZWT8 the Tiffin Challenge.
