Cranberry Rice Pudding Parfait

Growing up, pudding was always a part of my life. We made it on a regular basis, and it was a treat I always loved. I tried almost every flavor, but there’s one I didn’t try as a kid – and that was rice pudding.

Honestly, rice pudding always seemed like “grown up food” to me as a kid. It was something I just never thought to try. It was something my mom and grandma ate, but not for me. Well, I was seriously missing out as a kid. Sometimes I wonder what was wrong with me (that’s just the tip of the iceberg!).

Anyway, I got the opportunity to whip up something fun with Kozy Shack® rice pudding this month, just in time for National Rice Pudding Day yesterday. I took inspiration from the flavors in my favorite salad, it was so good – the sweet rice pudding played off the tart cranberries and I just kept coming back for more.

Basically, you need this in your life. Celebrate Rice Pudding Day a little late and whip this up – you won’t regret it. Simply take some Kozy Shack® Rice Pudding and layer it in a pretty glass with dried cranberries and a few pecans. Keep going until you get to the top, post it to Facebook or Instagram (because everyone takes photos of their food, right?), and dive in.

The best part – it’s made from real food. I love that when I buy Kozy Shack® pudding, I know it’s made from real ingredients and no junk. I’ve now tried all the flavors of pudding Kozy Shack® makes, and I’ve loved them all. 

And now that I’ve written this, I’m hungry. Off to make another parfait….

What’s your favorite Kozy Shack® flavor? What do you top it with?

    I don’t know that I’ve ever heard of doing a rice pudding parfait, only parfaits with yogurt. However, I LOVE rice pudding, so this is a fab idea!
