Chai Rice Pudding

Chai Rice Pudding

Serves 8

If you like chai tea, you'll love this creamy, comforting dessert studded with apples and raisins. For the best flavor, choose a strong, spicy chai tea; we used Tazo's chai tea bags.
  • 3 ½ cups unsweetened soymilk or low-fat milk
  • 4 black chai tea bags
  • 1 cup short- or medium-grain white rice
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ⅛ tsp. salt
  • 1 medium-sized apple, peeled, cored and diced
  • ¼ cup dark raisins
  • whipped cream for garnish, optional
  • cinnamon for garnish, optional

1. Bring 2 cups water and 1 cup soymilk to a boil in large saucepan. Remove from heat, and add teabags. Cover, and steep 5 minutes. Remove tea bags, squeezing out any liquid.

2. Stir rice, sugar and salt into tea mixture. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 minutes. Add remaining 2 1/2 cups soymilk, and simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes, or until rice is soft. Stir in apple and raisins; remove from heat. Cover pot, and let sit 10 minutes.

3. Spoon pudding into 2-quart heatproof dish. Serve warm or cold, with whipped cream and cinnamon, if desired.

this sounds good, and I had recently purchased Thai Iced tea in a huge bag at an Asian store. I might try making this with the Thai Iced tea since I have so much of it.

This just didn't have the creamy consistency I was expecting out of the rice pudding--maybe it would have been better with arborio rice?
