Portuguese Lemon Rice Pudding – Arroz Doce com Limao
This recipe for Arroz Doce is a variation from the original that uses milk. This recipe is made using condensed milk and lemon pudding. This dessert comes out very rich, creamy and lemony.
Thanks to Leonor Santos for the recipe and photos! I love the Acores tablecloth! Enjoy!
1 pound Carolina rice
4 cups whole milk
4 cups water
2 cans condensed milk
1 stick Margarine
Zest of 1 lemon

In a heavy pot place rice, milk, water, margarine, condensed milk and lemon zest. Stir from time to time.
When the liquid starts to boil, lower flame and keep stirring from time to time.
When the rice is cooked and all the liquid is absorbed turn off burner, remove from flame. Add the instant lemon pudding and stir fast until everything is incorporated.
