Do you like rice pudding but hate all the mussin and fussin involved with making it???? Well then this recipe is for you. All you need is a crockpot, a spoon, and the ingredients. Sounds easy huh?
So lets get started, first lets gather up what we shall need:

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 cup dried cranberries or cherries (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla
Pinch of salt

1 cup sugar
1 cup uncooked rice
2 qts. (8 cups) vanilla soy milk(I have also used homemade Rice Milk...RICE MILK RECIPE and homemade Oat Milk, if lends a slightly different taste, ALL GOOD)
