I've done something sort of crazy lately that is completely out of my character.
Two weeks ago I basically stopped drinking coffee.
It was right around then that I discovered Stash Tea. If you're like me and have been drinking supermarket brands your whole life, you've probably never thought much about the flavor. This tea is like discovering beef carpaccio when you're whole life you've thought burgers were the best way to eat beef.
Stash Tea was nice enough to sponsor a giveaway for this post. One winner will get:
(1) Orange Spice 20 ct box
(1) Blueberry Superfruit Caffeine Free 20 ct box
(1) Mangosteen with Matcha 18 ct Box
(1) Moroccan Mint 20 ct box
My husband and I both love the Blueberry. Ok. We love all of them, but the Blueberry is amazing. I would probably drink it instead of water if I had an endless supply. I wanted to make something to do it justice and my friend Garrett suggested rice pudding. I'd never made it before, but was a little obsessed with a store in NYC that only served rice pudding. I thought I had a pretty good idea for what it should taste like. This is nice and creamy with a big blueberry flavor. I hope you like it.
Tea Infused Blueberry Rice Pudding
45 minutes, plus 3 hr chill time
3 cups of water
1 cup sushi rice
2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup half & half
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 pint blueberries
Cook the rice with 3 cups of water and 3 teabags as you would normally. Once rice is done, add milk, leaving the teabags in this mixture. Open your remaining tea bag and add the contents to this mixture. Cook for five minutes on medium heat, it will slightly thicken up. Add the cornstarch to your half and half and mix. Once lumps are gone add half and half to your rice. Remove the tea bags. Add vanilla, sugar, and blueberries and cook for 10 minutes on medium. Remove from heat, spoon pudding into a storage bowl and chill for at least three hours. Serve cold.
