  • 2 bottles (470 mL) Vanilla Ensure® Advance
  • 60 mL (¼ cup) Arborio rice (or short-grain white rice), uncooked
  • 15 mL (1 Tbsp) pure maple syrup
  • 1 cinnamon stick

How to make

  • Using a sieve, rinse the rice under cold water.
  • In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients. Cook over low-medium heat, stirring frequently to ensure ingredients don’t stick to the bottom of the pan and to prevent a skin from forming on the top. Do not boil.
  • Reduce heat to low for 20 to 30 minutes or until the pudding reaches a consistency slightly more liquid than you would like. Remove from heat and let cool uncovered; more liquid will absorb during this time.
