Puerto Rican Arroz Con Leche (Rice With Milk)

Puerto Rican Arroz Con Leche (Rice With Milk) created by Syntia S.

In Puerto Rico this recipe is simply a rice soup made with milk. Usually made for babies, children, or when someone has a bad stomach. It is a comfort food. In other Latin American countries 'Arroz con leche' might be a dessert made with sugar and cinnamon. Our rice dessert is called Arroz con dulce, made with coconut.

    It was quick and easy! My husband and children loved it and I am so happy to be able to share my traditional dessert with the family. Thank you so much. Now I know where to go for all my delicious but forgotten recipes!

    Just like my mom's. When my kids were little my mom would make this for them and now whenever they need Abuela's comfort this is the go to recipe. Today my son is home sick with an uneasy stomach and I needed a reference recipe. Thanks for including it. It's great to have the proportions since I forget them. We don't use sugar.
