Arroz Con Leche (Mexican Rice Pudding)

Hi guys! How’s your week going? I hope you’re accomplishing all of the goals you set out to do this week! If not, you got 3 more days! :). I did accomplish ONE big thing this week and couldn’t wait to tell you about it!

My blog got a new shiny look and it’s looking fabulous if I say so myself:)I LOVE clean looking blogs, with easy to follow links and not flashy colors.  For some reason I’m very attracted to monochromatic  tones – I’m even transitioning my home to this look as well. The old blog was close to this but this style is even cleaner. I think by keeping your blog simple, your food images have a better chance of standing out and that’s definitely my goal!

I added a new page (PRESS) where I list the places where I’ve been featured and some popular links where my recipes have been shared. I’m also thinking of starting a new blog series called “Back to Basics” where I share quick recipes that can be used as foundations to other recipes. Like pesto, enchilada sauce, salad dressings, different kinds of salsas, pizza dough, etc. So watch out for that soon!

If you’re reading this thru a feeder, please click the link HERE and take a look at my new and shiny blog! I welcome your input and would love to hear what you think 😀

Since the announcement of my blog’s new look took the spotlight, I figured I would share a simple dessert recipe to go along with it.

As simple this Arroz Con Leche is, it is also very delicious and so easy to make! It’s one of my few childhood desserts I used to have. In fact, my mom used to make only two dessert for us; this one and Platanos Con Crema (Bananas & Cream). Maybe she only had two in her rotation since she wasn’t a dessert person (like I used to be :).

Note: For this recipe I used La Lechera for the Sweetened Condensed milk since that’s the one I grew up with. But you can use any if your grocery store doesn’t carry it.

    Nadja Eleonora - Hi, I found you when googeling for gluten free derserts :)
    My first thought when I saw this recepie was OMG!
    Did you know that this pudding is what we in sweden eat for christmas (called “Santa Claus porridge)- to most of us it’s eaten hot as breakfast or cold with added whiped cream and oranges (and some extra drizzles of sirup) as desert on christmas eve.

    Love to see familliar recepies in other parts of the world- yay 😀

      ana @ fit, fun & delish! - Hi Nadja, I’m so glad you found my blog! I had no idea about this rice pudding is a tradition in Sweden. So cool to know that! Adding whipped cream sound delish! Thanks for the idea and thanks for stopping by!ReplyCancel
