Rice Smoothie (Pudding Taste)

You may have not thought of ever making a rice smoothie, but if rice goes in a pudding, why can’t it go in smoothies?

So, I tried it! I chose classic well-known flavors with the rice.

I aimed to achieve the same taste you would get from a fruity rice pudding.

So I guess you could call this smoothie a rice pudding smoothie! You have to try it, you will be surprised how good rice can be in a smoothie!
