“I can say this is heart healthy because I found this recipe in the American Heart Associations Healthy Recipes booklet. I love the taste of this pudding! The first time I tried to make rice pudding when I was a teen it came out looking like a form of cement - needless to say I've improved and this recipe is now a favorite.”
