It’s National Rice Pudding Day! Yum. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s simply rice with milk, sugar, and spices. The ingredient list might be simple, but the flavor is not! My mouth is just watering thinking about it. Yum.

I’ll be honest, I always thought this was just a Greek staple because I typically see it on the menu at Greek restaurants. But it turns out, according to Arcadia Publishing it has very long history in cultures from around the world! It may date all the way back to 6000 BCE and it wasn’t always a sweet treat. But now it is and I want some now!

Here’s a great 5-star rated recipe for an extra creamy rice pudding if you want to make your own at home!
