Here's a super easy rice pudding recipe!
1 cup Arborio rice
2 cups milk
2 cups half and half
vanilla- 1 tsp
cinnamon (1/2 tsp), nutmeg (1/4 tsp), allspice (1/4 tsp)- or, you can use pumpkin spice, and Starbucks up your rice pudding
Sugar- 1/4-1/2 cup- depending on your taste (we like ours less sweet)
Possible additions- orange peel, coconut, chopped pecans, raisins,dried cranberries, or other dried fruits (apricots and pineapples are very nice when added together! especially with coconut and pecans- so tasty)
Put milk and half and half in slow cooker for 2 hours on high. Stir in sugar, vanilla, spices, coconut, chopped nuts or any other additions. Pudding will thicken quite a bit. If you like a more liquid pudding, add 1/4 cup more milk.
