Ingredients

FOR THE RICE DREAM:

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Basmati white rice, can substitute regular white rice
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2/3 cup chocolate hazelnut spread
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

FOR THE RASPBERRY/STRAWBERRY SAUCE:

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 3 tablespoon sugar (I used demerara sugar)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Instructions

FOR THE RICE DREAM:

  • In a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups of water to a boil. Add the rice and salt, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook the rice for 15 minutes or until all of the water has been absorbed.
  • Stir in the milk and simmer on low heat for 20-25 minutes or until all of the milk has been absorbed and the rice mixture is creamy.
  • Stir in the chocolate hazelnut spread and transfer to a bowl. Set aside and let cool.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the cream with the sugar and vanilla and whip the mixture with a hand or stand up mixer until cream has stiffened. Using a rubber spatula, fold the whipped cream mixture into the rice, mixing until thoroughly all is combined.

FOR THE RASPBERRY/STRAWBERRY SAUCE:

  • In a small saucepan, combine both fruits, sugar, and lemon juice. Place over medium-low heat, cook for about 10 minutes, then smash the fruit pieces with a masher or the back of a spoon. Continue to cook for another 5-10 minutes, or until mixture thickens. Can strain mixture to remove the seeds, if desired.

TO SERVE:

  • Divide rice mixture among 6 individual bowls, spoon desired amount of the raspberry/strawberry sauce on top of each one, cover with plastic wrap, and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

Notes

  • Can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days
