Mexican Rice Pudding Pops

Fun and festive Mexican Rice Pudding Pops made with a classic Arroz Con Leche Recipe. Creamy, sweet, and chunky with golden raisins and cinnamon.

If you love rice pudding I’ve got a special treat for you today, Pudding Pops made with a Mexican Arroz con Leche recipe.

These pudding pops were inspired by a latina friend who tells me the most elaborate tales of dishes she ate growing up in Mexico. One of her favorite childhood treats was Arroz con Leche, a creamy decedent rice pudding that her abuelita used to make her with leftover rice.

Adi tells me a good Arroz con Leche recipe has 3 milks, like a tres leches cake, and uses cinnamon sticks not ground cinnamon.

She swears she can taste the difference between rice pudding made with cinnamon sticks and one using ground cinnamon. Hmmm…

After tasting Adi’s warm silky Arroz con Leche recipe, I wondered how it might taste frozen.

Rice in a pudding pop?!?

Heck yes!

These ultra creamy, yet chunky, pudding pops are a unique summer treat. They certainly aren’t what you’d expect when someone offers you a popsicle, but are very appealing.

The base of the rice pudding is rich and sweet, yet not overly sweet, which makes the little bits of golden raisin really standout. I loved the subtle spicy essence of cinnamon and nutmeg and the substantial texture.

These pudding pop are strangely hearty, but in a good way.

    What an interesting idea. I love rice pudding when it’s warm and creamy but also leftovers cold from the fridge. So why not uber-cold? Love it!
