One of my family’s favourite holiday desserts is my Mother-In-Law’s rice pudding. It is quite time consuming to make, but so good. This holiday season, I am re-inventing this holiday recipe using Silk Creamy Cashew Unsweetened Beverage and dried cranberries (raisins more delicious cousin). The final product is a light and delicious dessert filled with cranberries and holiday flavours.
- 3 1/2 cups Silk Creamy Cashew Unsweetened Beverage
- 1 cup white rice
- 4 Tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- Pinch salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries
- Mix cashew milk, rice, maple syrup, coconut oil and salt together in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.
- Cover and simmer for ~ 20 minutes or until most of the cashew milk is absorbed.
- Stir in vanilla extract, cinnamon and nutmeg. Fold in dried cranberries and let sit for 10 minutes.
- If your rice pudding is too thick you can add additional cashew milk until it is the consistency you desire. You can also add additional maple syrup if you prefer a sweeter taste.
- Serve warm.
- When reheating, add a splash of cashew milk to keep the rice pudding creamy.
