Lemon and Rum Raisin Rice Pudding

I saw two different recipes for rice pudding, plus remembered how my mom makes it (a Russian-style rice pudding) and decided to create my own version. This is definitely the ultimate comfort food.



  • 4 cups of Organic Whole Milk (plus more if needed until rice is tender)
  • 1/2 cup of Organic Long Grain Rice
  • 3 tb spoons of Granulated Sugar (more or less to taste)
  • Vanilla extract, a splash
  • Zest of half of Lemon
  • 1 tb spoon Light Rum
  • 1/2 cup of Raisins


In a small bowl, place raisins and pour rum, mix, set aside.

In a heavy, medium-sized saucepan combine, milk, rice, sugar, and vanilla. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the rice is tender, about 25 minutes.

Remove from heat, add lemon zest, rum soaked raisins and mix well. Let cool, serve.
