This week we’re doing a recipe swap with Sam from Lunchbox Labels & More

Easy & Delicious Rice Pudding


Hi there!

My name is Samantha (Sam) and I am the owner of Lunchbox Labels & More! I create unique personalized labels for Lunchboxes and more without restricting you to a set theme. I am excited to be doing a blog swap this week with Ashlee. You can check out Ashlee’s amazing ‘Honey chicken rice paper rolls’ recipe over on my blog, where you will also find some other great lunchbox filler recipes.

Now onto the Easy & Delicious Rice Pudding recipe!

I have been making this recipe for my kids for years and it is not only delicious it is also REALLY easy! This recipe comes from my friend Mimi who is an amazing cook amongst other things! Check out her Facebook page ‘Mimi’s Savings Secrets’ for some great tips and recipes.

I will often make this for dessert and for lunch boxes (it will do dessert one day and a few lunches!)…And tastes amazing hot or cold. My kids prefer it cold so it is a great lunchbox filler. Our Bento Box range includes a small container and spoon, which are the perfect size for taking to kindy/school. You can check out our Bento Box options in the ‘Ready to Go’ section of our website store HERE.

Easy & Delicious Rice Pudding



¾ cup Arborio (medium grain) rice

1 litre of milk (I use skim milk)

1-2 teaspoons vanilla essence

2 tablespoons sugar




Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and stir continuously over a high heat until the milk starts to boil.

Remove from the heat and turn the hot plate off. Stir the mixture and return to the hot plate. Put a lid on and leave for 30 minutes. Watch initially for milk bubbling over…if this happens remove from the heat again for a few minutes then return to the hot plate.

After 30 minutes stir the mix. The rice should be soft at this stage. Put the lid back on and return to the hot plate. Leave for another hour. Stir and serve or chill to serve hot or cold later.
