This 3-ingredient rice pudding is the ultimate dessert that's as easy as 1-2-3! With just rice, whole milk, and a touch of sweetness, it's the perfect blend of simplicity and deliciousness!
Add the maple syrup, arborio rice, whole milk, and water to a saucepan over low heat to medium heat.
Cook for 18-20 minutes stirring regularly so the rice does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
The rice pudding is done when the rice is cooked but there is still some liquid left in the pudding.
Make sure you do not let the mixture boil. If it boils, you run the risk of curdling the milk and having chunks in the rice pudding.
For added flavor, mix in vanilla extract or a pinch of salt to the rice right before it is done cooking.
