Rice Pudding

Rice Pudding (Level 1 carbo)

3 cups fat free milk
1/4 cup brown rice
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar substitute (I use Whey Low)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Combine the milk, rice and salt in a medium saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer about 25 minutes, stirring frequently, until the rice is tender.

When rice is cooked and tender, remove from heat and add sugar substitute, vanilla and cinnamon. Stir to combine, return to stove and cook 7 to 10 minutes until the rice pudding has thickened.

Remove from heat and cool. *** Transfer to a serving bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Serve chilled and enjoy!

***Sometimes I add 1/4 cup dried unsweetened cranberries and stir into it just before I take if off the burner. This would make it almost level 1.
