Here is another easy recipe sent in from Janine. I've made rice pudding before but it usually contained condensed milk, so it wasn't the healthiest dessert going around. This recipe is beautiful and isn't sickly sweet. I loved it. I added some lemon curd to my portion. Yes, it might seem a little odd but on the weekend, I made some lemon curd and as it has to be eaten within a couple of weeks I have been adding it to everything! After adding a spoonful to this rice pudding I was in heaven for a couple of minutes! Now, this blog isn't about me, it's about our toddlers. Freya loved this. She was a little standoffish at first but after trying a few sultanas she was hooked. Thank you Janine.
