Creamy Vanilla Millet Pudding

By Shannon February 5, 2014 Desserts

Want a nice warm dessert, but don’t want a lot of starch? Try this creamy vanilla millet rice pudding.  Millet is not just for the birds! Millet is such a wonderful grain that can often be substituted for wheat or rice.  It is starchy, and similar to wheat, but it is gluten free.  This recipe is perfect for those who want a lot of flavor without a lot of starch.  It totally reminds me of being a kid.
