I grew up eating arroz con leche. It was a warm treat served during the cold days. To this day, the taste of arroz con leche transports me to my childhood. Now that I’m older, and watching my girlish figure and cholesterol, I’ve tweaked my family’s original recipe to make a Sabroso Saturday: Healthy, Light Arroz con Leche Recipe (Spanish Style Rice Pudding). It’s a lighter and healthier version, that does not sacrifice taste!

¡Buen provecho! / Bon Appetite!
