In a Pinch Banana Rice Pudding

This is great if you need something quick and easy for your baby/ toddler for desert. So... I know it isn't technically how rice pudding is made - but sometimes with a little one it's hard to find the time to bake one for almost 2 hours. If you need something sooner then this is for you!
I recommend using Alpro Junior soya milk as it has a higher fat/ vitamin content than regular soya milk.
The best rice to use is 'Pudding Rice', but if you don't have any on hand it will also work with regular white or a 50/50 mix of white and brown rice.

Half a cup of uncooked rice
1 Cup water
2 Bananas
1 Cup of Soya Milk
You could also add: 2 Tsp Almond/ Cashew Butter, 1 TSP Nutmeg or Cinnamon, 1 TSP Ground Flaxseed or Flaxseed Oil

First off - you'll want to cook the rice. Early on in Small's weaning journey I invested in a small portion rice cooker and it's been an absolutely amazing thing to have. Add twice as much water as you have rice, flick the switch and leave. Perfect rice every time. If you don't have one of these wonderful gadgets - follow the instructions on the packet and cook on the hob.
Into a food processor add your cooked rice, pealed bananas and milk (plus anything else you are adding to the mix) and process.
Depending on your child's chewing ability you may need to add more or less soya milk.
