This delicious, enticing rice pudding is made with fat-free skim milk and light unsweetened coconut milk to help cut down on the calories. It's also flavored with ground cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves to help cut down on the rich sweetness. You can serve it right away, or let it chill until cold, so it can hang out in the fridge right until you need it. Stirring rice while it cooks is usually not recommended because it releases the starch, which prevents the rice from becoming fluffy. In this recipe, however, stirring helps the rice to form the soft, creamy texture that makes rice pudding so comforting.
