I adore rice pudding, and I wasn't prepared to give it up just because I wanted to eat low fat. The answer was straightforward enough: substitute whole milk and cream with fat-free milk and evaporated fat-free milk. Add your own flavor, such as cinnamon, nutmeg or ginger, if vanilla isn't enough, and stir in some of your favorite dried fruit. Enjoy your rice pudding warm (as I do) or chilled.
