A few years ago, I fell in love with this Easy Rice Pudding Recipe. I have since made adjustments to keep it lower in points while on Weight Watchers. There is nothing as wonderful as a flavorful rice pudding for dessert, and this fits into my points allowance on a regular basis!

The slight hint of cardamom is what I love about this recipe. You can easily find cardamom in the spice section of any store, but if you aren't going to use it regularly, I recommend going somewhere with a bulk spice department and getting just 1-2 teaspoons at a time. That way you aren't wasting spice but will have it on hand when you are ready to make this rice pudding recipe.

This easy rice pudding recipe truly is one of the most simple dessert options I have ever made. While many prefer slow cooking rice, I love Minute Rice for things like this dish. It makes it a bit lower in points, as well as making it convenient for a last minute option. We usually sprinkle a few shavings of almonds on top for added crunch, or my favorite way to serve it is with chunks of pineapple or mango mixture into the pudding.
