1/4cupof brown rice(you could also use white but brown is more nutritious)
1teaspoonvanilla bean paste(or you could use extract)
1small cinnamon stick
Honey or maple syrup to drizzle - suitable for babies 12 months plus
Combine milk, vanilla bean paste, cinnamon stick and rice in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Cover with a lid; lower temperature and simmer for about an hour to an hour and a half. (brown rice will take quite a bit longer than white rice).
It is ready when most of the liquid has been absorbed, keeping in mind it will thicken up quite a lot once cool. Serve warm or cold on it own, or drizzle with honey and top with fresh fruit
To sweeten naturally try adding a mashed banana once cooked and cooled For little babies, add to a blender and puree until smooth. Try adding a date when pureeing for another flavour with added natural sweetener
