Rice pudding reminds me of my childhood! I love this version topped with a mixture of fresh fruit. For variety, you can swap the banana for a different exotic fruit, such as papaya or pineapple.

Method
  1. Place the banana, fresh fruit, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg in a saucepan with 60ml water and bring to the boil.
  2. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, or until quite tender but not mushy.
  3. Add the cooked rice and skimmed milk, mix thoroughly, bring to the boil and simmer for a further 10 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle with raisins and a dusting of cinnamon, and serve warm.
Dried fruit, such as apricots and berries, or tinned fruit (in juice rather than syrup) work well too
