Almond Milk Rice Pudding w/ Honey

I love to find new ways to treat my kids (yes Stelios, you too) that are not packed with sugar and dairy.  This is an easy recipe that I adapted from a children's cookbook and it was super easy and tasty. It makes quite a small amount, though, so you may want to try it out and if you like it double it next time.  In Greece rice pudding (rizogalo) is a common treat and since we live in Greece I decided to ditch the sugar and use our beautiful honey from the mountains of Crete.   We actually get it as a gift from my husband's family - another perk of living in this beautiful country.

Ingredients:

1/2 c long grain rice
3 1/2 c almond milk (I make mine, you find the recipe here)
2 TBSP honey
1 tsp vanilla
dash of salt

Instructions:

1- In a large saucepan mix the milk and rice and bring to a boil.
2- Reduce the heat to medium low and stir often until it thickens and it has the consistency of rice pudding (around 35 minutes)
3- Stir in the honey and vanilla and remove from the heat to cool
4- Scoop into 2-4 small bowls and enjoy, or refrigerate covered.
5- Top with raisins, cinnamon and nuts if for a more hearty snack.

(If you don't want to have a skin formed on top, cover it with the plastic touching the pudding, but my kids LIKE that skin on top and eat it before it even gets to the fridge)
