Forget everything you know or think you know about rice pudding. Even though it's true that too many people may think of nursing homes and mushy dessert when it comes to rice pudding, the recipe below shows that doesn't have to be the case. In this version, you get a sweet and light dessert that will have you totally rethinking rice pudding. It may become one of your favorite desserts. Sweet and easy; what's better than that?
The secret is to use half long-grain rice and half arborio rice. The long-grain rice will ensure you get the creaminess rice pudding is known for. And the arborio rice will give it just enough legs to keep it from being the mushy dessert you tend to think of when it comes to rice pudding. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the results.
