    Vegan Maple Almond Arroz con Leche Recipe

    If you’ve gone vegan, or have issues with dairy products, it can be hard to find those sweet treats that we all crave, especially the traditional ones abuelita made for us. For about 100 calories per half cup serving, Maple Almond Arroz con Leche makes the perfect afternoon pick-me-up at work or late-night nosh.


    Ingredients
    6
    cups
    almond milk
    1
    cup
    uncooked rice
    2
    sticks
    cinnamon
    1/4
    cup
    pure maple syrup or agave syrup
    1
    teaspoon
    almond extract
    *
    slivered almonds, for garnish
    Directions
    Pour the almond milk, rice and cinnamon into a medium pot. Bring to a simmer over high heat, then lower to medium heat and cook uncovered until the rice is tender and the pudding is thick, about 30 minutes total. Make sure to us during the mixture every 1 to 2 minutes, so the rice does not scorch and stick to the bottom of the pan.
    Once the rice is tender, remove from the heat, and allow to cool briefly. Add the maple syrup and almond extract, stirring to combine well.
    Top with slivered almonds and serve warm.
