Making rice pudding in the slow cooker is a cinch, because, as with most slow cooker recipes, you simply put all of the ingredients into the slow cooker and press the button. It also gives your kitchen an irresistible aroma that will have you ready to dig in, as the cinnamon lends an aromatic flavor to the rice pudding. The addition of chia seeds lends a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids. Almond milk is used in cooking the rice in place of dairy milk so it’s perfect for vegans. Enjoy!
