Rice is a staple food in the Caribbean, so it's not surprising that it's prepared in many different ways. Rice pudding is one of my favorite desserts sweetened up with cinnamon, vanilla, sugar and evaporated milk.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes


  • 1/2 cup white rice (long grain)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 10-ounce can evaporated milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ground cinnamon for garnish


1. In a saucepan over medium heat, cook the rice, water, salt, and cinnamon sticks for 15 minutes.

2. Add the evaporated milk and sugar when the rice grains begin to split open.

3. Reduce the heat to low and cook the rice mixture until creamy. Remove the mixture from the heat. Take out the cinnamon sticks and reserve for garnishing. Mix in the vanilla extract.

4. Place the rice mixture into individual serving cups and chill for about 1 1/2 hours.

5. Garnish with powdered cinnamon and cinnamon sticks before serving.

Servings: Makes 4 servings.
