Chocolate Black Rice Pudding

This is SO easy and so yummy! This recipe is inspired by my friend who made a similar version for me. She ate a non-chocolate version and decided to make it for my family when we visited her, but a chocolate version! She knows me too well!
What's even more cool is the health benefits of black rice "Forbidden Rice", including anthocyanins (antioxidant), lutein, fatty acids and more! Check this out:
This is like rice pudding and can be tweaked in multiple ways to fit your palette. I've included a few ingredient variations below.
I serve this warm and reheat leftovers, but it could be eaten cold as well. Keep in mind, it's filling! Small servings are best, especially if eaten after a meal.

  • Cook black rice in water as directed
