Plated + Served: Holiday Rice Pudding


Holiday Rice PuddingRice pudding, aka Arroz con Leche, is probably one of the most popular desserts around… and there are about as many ways to make it as there are abuelas (grandmothers) in the world. But I promise, this one will become a family favorite!

My friends at Right@Home wanted a traditional dessert with a modern, colorful twist, so I layered tropical dried fruit, cranberries and chopped pecans between the creamy sweet rice pudding. I made it in the Large Square Ziploc® brand VersaGlass® container… pretty and portable!

Right@Home, the bilingual website, is a great place to find more fantastic holiday recipes like this one. There are also lots of tips on how you and the family can clean and organize the house before the holidays gets here.

    WOW! I really hope you didn’t just give away my abuela’s and mami’s secret recipe! 🙂 I don’t know what they put in theirs but it was/is amazing.
    Thank you for sharing this on the Thumping Thursdays Blog Hop.

      Haha! Thanks for stopping by and for you sweet words! Let me know if you try the recipe (although if your mamí has a secret recipe, it is probably fantastic!).

    Hi, I just popped over from the social hop. I’m a new Linky Follower, stop over and follow me, too. I love your blog, it’s colorful, with a lot of yummy recipes. I just posted my Mother’s awesome cranberry bread recipe.

    I LOVE THIS! I have been looking for a rice pudding recipe that is WHITE. (Usually they are yellow and don’t taste like the Jewel Chef’s Kitchen deli in Chicagoland.)
    I can’t wait to try this, pinning to Pinterest!
