Not many people know this, but I do have Swedish roots with my mother being Swedish. Growing up, I spend many summers and Christmases in the south of Sweden. I remember from a young age my mother would always make rice pudding, or #risalamalta, for Christmas. For me Christmas is not the same without it. This recipe is a collaboration with @aitoglobal where I have replaced the dairy products with Oat based products: Aito Oat Drink and Aito Oat for Whipping. I should add this version is served cold,and again is simply how I love to have it.
At times when we have to make more sustainable choices, it is nice to have the option to change the regular dairy based whip to an oat based alternative.

Rice pudding or Ris á la Malta

2 dl grötris
1 tsp salt
4 dl water
8 dl Aito Oat Drink
1 cinnamon stick
1 vanilla pod
2 tbsp suger
2 dl Aito Oat for Whipping

· In a pot place the grötris, salt and water. Bring to a simmer on medium heat with the lid on for 10 minutes.
· Add the Aito Oat Drink and cinimon stick to the cooked grötris. Place the lid back on to the pot and cook for 30 to 40 minutes on a low heat. You want to grötris to swell up soacking up all the liquid. Give the grötris a stir occasinaly while cooking. Once ready set aside to cool and then place in the fridge.
· With a electric whisk, whip the Aito Oat For Whipping in a bowl. You can add the seeds from a vanilla pod and, the sugar. Whip until you are just at stif peak.
· Now take your cold grötris and add a large spoon of the whipped Aito. Stir into the grötris to loosing up the mix. Then with a large metal spoon, gently fold in the rest of the whipped Aito. You can decide how much of the whipped Aito you want to use. I prefer mine creamy.
· Serve with your favourite jam and fruits.
