This warm and comforting dessert made with raisins and seasoned with a hint of rum and nutmeg tastes just like Grandma's recipe, but... there is a difference. This version is made with SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener.
INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):
- 3 cups whole milk
- 1/4 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granular
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1/3 cup uncooked long grain rice
- 1 pinch salt
- 1/4 cup raisins or mixed dried fruit
- 2 tablespoons rum or orange juice
- 1 pinch nutmeg
Pour milk, SPLENDA® Granular, and vanilla into a medium saucepan. Add cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil. Add rice and salt. Cover and cook over low heat 30 minutes or until most of the milk is absorbed. Stir occasionally. Remove saucepan from heat. Set aside.
Place raisins (or mixed dried fruit) and orange juice (or rum) in small microwaveable bowl. Warm in a microwave briefly to plump the raisins. Add plumped raisins (or mixed fruit) to rice pudding.
Spoon into dessert dishes. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Serve warm or chilled.
