Banana Rice Pudding

4 ripe bananas, sliced
2 cups cooked brown rice, oats or barley

1/4 cup almond milk or plain yogurt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon dessert spice blend or cinnamon

Combine the bananas and whole grains ingredients in a microwaveable dish.  If the grains or bananas are cold, microwave the mixture for a minute or two to take the chill off. 

In a small bowl or cup, mix the nut milk or yogurt and vanilla extract, sprinkle the dessert spice blend or cinnamon over it and mix well, then stir it into the banana/grain mixture.  Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes, or until the bananas are soft and the grains are heated through. Stir and serve.

4-6 servings

Variations: You may add raisins, currants, pieces of dried apricot or other fruits, chopped nuts, or tiny pieces of candied ginger if desired. If you wish, add a little of your favorite flavored liquer or rum. Garnish with fresh fruits or sprinkle each serving with a little of the dessert spice blend or cinnamon.
