Pumpkin Rice Pudding

There are only a few rice pudding that I enjoy, and this fluffy Pumpkin Rice Pudding is one of them. The girls are obsessed with it, so I try and make it for them a few times during the holiday season. It’s a great vegan recipe and if you’re counting calories use brown rice for a healthy alternative.
Pumpkin Rice Pudding

It’s a nice combination of rice pudding and pumpkin. Not too sweet, creamy, fluffy – simply perfection. Can you taste the flavor already? Using ingredients you’ve in your pantry, this will be ready in 30 minutes or less. If you want a bit of a crunch, you can add 1/3 cup of finely chopped pecans to the mix. It will make a dessert for the family on a cold fall day or any day for that matter.

    We love RICE PUDDING and I’ve been making it ~ using a recipe from my great great grandma ~ like, forever! It’s kind of our main COMFORT FOOD (surpassing even Mac & Cheese.)

    I must say I’ve been a real creature of habit… That said we do love pumpkin (and I kind of hate BAKING, as in PIES and pastries (to labor and detail intensive for me) so…

    Pumpkin Rice Pudding sounds mighty fine to me. Thanks!
