Gingered Rice Pudding

This creamy rice pudding is a cinch to make and a lovely way to enjoy a sweet treat. While many rice pudding recipes feature cinnamon and raisins, this version uses crystallized ginger and orange slices for a sweet, yet tangy twist.


  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1 1/2 cups 1% milk
  • 1 cup artificial sweetener
  • 1 cup crystallized ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 cup whipped cream
  • Orange slices (optional)


  1. Bring water and rice to a boil in a small saucepan. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for about 30 minutes.
  2. Add 1 cup milk and continue cooking for 15 minutes. Rice will continue to absorb milk, but there should be some liquid. Add more milk if necessary.
  3. Serve warm with a dollop of gingered whip cream or refrigerate and serve cold. Garnish with thin orange slices, if you like.
