This is a creamy rice pudding that bursts with berry flavour and just a touch of maple sweetness. It makes a terrific snack, dessert or even breakfast, served warm or cold.

  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups (500 mL) 1% milk
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) short-grain (arborio) rice
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (500 mL) blueberries or raspberries (thaw, if frozen)


  • In a deep, heavy saucepan, whisk flour into milk. Stir in rice and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring often.
  • Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 to 25 minutes or until rice is very tender.
  • Remove from heat and stir in maple syrup and vanilla extract. Let cool slightly (the pudding will thicken upon cooling).
  • Stir in berries. Divide the pudding among 4 small bowls. Serve warm or cold.
