  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup arborio rice
  • 3 1/2 cups skim milk
  • 1/2 cup fat free half & half
  • pinch salt
  • 4 tablespoons truvia or splenda or regular sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1/4 cup toasted almonds


  • In a large pot, melt butter and stir in arborio rice to coat grains. Pour in enough milk to cover the rice by 1/3 inch or so. Continuously stir the rice until the milk has been absorbed and mixture turns very thick. Continue this process until all milk has been added. 
  • Stir in half & half and Truvia until rice is cooked to your liking and the desired consistency is reached. Feel free to add in a few more splashes of milk to make the pudding thinner or cook it longer to have it thicker. 
  • Remove from heat and stir in almond extract and vanilla bean paste. Top with toasted almonds and serve warm.
