Today is the last day for the Dessert theme and am making Strawberry Rice pudding. I love this pudding as it is healthy, good for diabetics and strawberries helps to keep bloodsugar level low and also can satisfy their craving.



Rice pudding or kheer are easy to make and deliciously smooth and creamy, you can add any flavour to it. As strawberries are in season it is god way to use and enhance the flavour of pudding. Not only it good for adults but also good for babies you can add some chopped nuts, cook together and makes a lovely meal.
