This is good, but it isn't rice pudding or a custard. It is arroz con leche. Milk and rice and sweeteners. My grandmother's rice pudding recipe has eggs and butter, so I think I am just being spoiled by that. It is good, but it definitly lacks the fat/flavor of a genuine rice pudding. A great option for going lite, though. Also, to prevent it from getting crazy thick, stop cooking it before it gets pudding thick; it will thicken up as it cools some more. If you miss the mark and cook until pudding thick, I like to just stir in extra milk once it comes out of the fridge to get it back to a smoother texture.
