It’s not everyday that you see black rice pudding. At least for us it’s the first time. When our friend Kludeta Skënderasi showed us the photo, it didn’t even look like rice pudding. Then when she explained that for the recipe, she used black rice: as a mom of two children, always in the search for the best and healthy method of cooking, she is looking for ways to level up the traditional cuisine to make them more tasteful and appealing to her kids. One of her ‘inventions’ is this black rice pudding, that it’s worth trying, if not for the taste, you should for the healthy nutrition.

A serving of black rice contains 160 calories, but it offers many useful elements, the deep violet color, just like in blueberries, shows the large quantity of antioxidants in this product.
