Cherry Brown Rice Pudding

This was one of those posts that I was just going to forget about.  The pictures aren’t that exciting, in fact I think they’re kind of bland.  But at the same time, I’m a huge fan of brown rice pudding and this was definitely delicious and not bland at all.  I said it last time I made brown rice pudding but I’ll say it again.  If you don’t like rice pudding made with regular white rice, don’t give up on this!  I’m not really a fan of regular rice pudding, but made with brown rice it’s one of my favorite desserts.

You can stick with raisins like I did the first time I posted about brown rice pudding, or you can add different dried fruits – or even some fresh fruits are yummy, like apples – or you could even leave it plain.  There are so many variations!

Brown rice is one of those things I usually have in the fridge, and if not I have extras stored in the freezer for when I need them at a moments notice.  Next time you make brown rice make sure to make a big pot Cherry Brown Rice Pudding

I ended up topping my rice pudding with some cherries that I had in the freezer that I cooked with a little honey and cornstarch.  Fresh cherries would be amazing in the summer, but I prefer this as a wintertime dessert because it’s so filling, creamy and comforting.  Not to mention I think it’s even more delicious served warm, but cold isn’t bad either Cherry Brown Rice Pudding
