BrekkyRicePudding

Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil, then add the rice and boil for 5 minutes. Drain and transfer to a heavy-based saucepan. Add the milk, cinnamon, lemon zest and vanilla and bring to the boil over
medium heat. Reduce the heat to low–medium and simmer, stirring frequently, for 20 minutes or until the milk is absorbed, the rice is cooked and the mixture is thick.

Stir in the maple syrup.

Divide the rice pudding among 4 bowls, sprinkle with ground cinnamon to taste, then top evenly with the passionfruit, strawberries and almonds and serve warm with yoghurt.

This can be made the day before and chilled in the refrigerator overnight, if desired. The pudding will thicken on chilling, so loosen with a little extra skim milk, if you like.
