There are tons of recipes out there for rice pudding and I have tried lots of them because my husband loves this stuff.  Some of you may have family recipes that have been passed down and you use only that one, well if you are up to a change you need to try this rice pudding recipe that is made with Earl Grey tea.  What an interesting spin on the flavor!  I made it for my husband and he tried hard to pin point the different flavor but couldn’t 🙂  I’m sure you could make it with other flavored teas if you wanted to try like a green tea  – now that might be awesome.  Enjoy!!!!  For comments/questions email ramona@lowfatdivablog.com

Rice Pudding

  • 1 1/2 cups water

  • 1 Earl Grey tea bag

  • 3/4 cup basmati rice

  • 1 cup no fat half and half

  • 1/4 cup blue agave syrup

  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/2 cup skim milk

  • 1 /4 cup egg beater

  • 2/3 cup golden raisins or regular if you choose

  • 1 tablespoon Blue Bonnet Lite

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or use Beanilla for a much better flavor

  • Combine water and tea bag in a saucepan. Bring water to a boil. Remove and discard the tea bag. Stir rice into boiling water, reduce heat to low, cover the saucepan, and cook until the moisture is absorbed into the rice and the rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Transfer the cooked rice to a clean saucepan.

  • Pour 1 cup no fat half and half  and agave syrup over the cooked rice; season with kosher salt. Place the saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until the mixture is thick and creamy, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir 1/2 cup  skim milk, eggbeater, and raisins into the rice mixture; simmer another 2 minutes while stirring.

  • Remove from heat. Stir butter and vanilla extract/Beanilla into the rice mixture until the butter melts.

  • Spoon into serving dishes and either serve warm or chill a bit and serve at room temp.

NOTE:  A dollop of low fat whip cream on top can be added or if you are a serious rice pudding person, plain is usually the way to serve it.
