Crock Pot Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is one of my favorites and with this recipe I need to be careful!  This recipe is so easy I could see myself putting this together in the morning for rice pudding every night!  I don’t think my waste-line would appreciate that or would my blood sugar level!  But for a once in awhile treat – this is perfect.

Because you use arborio rice, it is almost like a dessert risotto, so creamy.  I really think the lemon zest makes this perfect finish to it.  Stella and I ate it hot, warm and cold and to tell you the truth I loved it each and every way!

2 Tbsp. ground crispy almonds

3.In a large bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, and vanilla extract. Add to your crock pot and combine. If you want a thicker or richer rice pudding, you could use heavy cream instead or a combination of milk and heavy cream (which I did).

4. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours. The rice will be tender and set into a pudding.
