Since I haven’t been lucky enough to find the Carnation condensed soy milk (or I have been too lazy to actually look for it), I made my own almond condensed milk using this recipe from Veganbaking.net. I made it the night before in a slow cooker and it was incredibly easy.
After I made my condensed milk, I put it in the refrigerator overnight and made my Arroz Con Leche recipe in the morning. If you’ve never had Arroz Con Leche, it is a delicious rice pudding traditionally served with raisins and cinnamon, with the option of adding chocolate, nutmeg or citrus zest.
Here’s a popular Arroz Con Leche children’s song:
- 1/2 cup white rice, uncooked
- 1 1/2 cup non-dairy milk or water
- 1/2 cinnamon stick
- 1 cup sweetened non-dairy condensed milk (recipe above)
- 1 small box of raisins
- ground cinnamon, as a garnish
In a small saucepan, add rice, non-dairy milk (or water if you don't have any) and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat immediately and simmer until milk or water is absorbed - about 10-15 minutes.
Add non-dairy condensed milk and raisins. Stirring regularly, cook uncovered until milk is combined, which took me about 10 minutes.
Remove cinnamon stick and serve garnished with ground cinnamon. I like to eat mine cold, but if you can't wait any longer, go on and eat it warm because it's still tasty!
