Dont like Oatmeal like me? No problem. Make this 10 minute Brown rice pudding and add fruits and nuts and eat up. The pudding can be served hot, warm or cold. It has brown rice flour that thickens up the almond milk into a smooth silky pudding. The banana and the dates are enough to sweeten it. Add sugar if needed. With a hint of vanilla and layered with ripe bananas, mango and walnuts, this is almost a treat. Add a pinch of cinnamon or cardamom or some ginger bread spices and try this banana nut pudding.
You can also just blend up 1-2 frozen bananas to a pudding texture and layer them with the fruits and nuts and serve. But me being with my amazing teeth, it is practically impossible to eat this cold during the winter. I like hot cereal or porridge, just not Oatmeal. And I really love bananas (and hubbs is allergic, so no one to finish this up if it is cold) and would rather not wait for summer. So I usually serve this up warm. It is as delicious cold as well.
You can also use cream of rice or wheat or farina or white rice flour to make the pudding. The hot cereal pudding takes like 7 minutes to get done unlike whole or broken grains. Chop up fruits and done. Or make ahead and serve.
