Rich delicious creamy Banana Rice pudding with Banana Liqueur

This Rich delicious creamy Banana Rice pudding with Banana Liqueur (optional) is really easy to make and tastes soooo good. Serve it in a nice classy glass and silverware and you can serve it at a formal dinner. I used whole Organic 100% grass fed milk, or you can use lower fat milk, its good either way. I used Arborio rice which is firm and creamy and perfect in rice pudding. I also used full fat heavy whip cream others will not do :). Serve with your best silverware, for that elegant touch and this will wow your guests. Simple dessert with a beautiful presentation. And I used Ceylon Cinnamon. Note about Cinnamon. Did you know that common Cinnamon sold in supermarkets is called Cassia Cinnamon? It originates in Southern China. If you consume too much of it it is Toxic. Ceylon Cinnamon is is native to Sri Lanka and southern parts of India. Ceylon Cinnamon is a high-quality, highly prized spice. I got mine at the local Sprouts. Now Cassia Contains Coumarin, Which Can Be Toxic. So if you consume a lot of cinnamon, I would much rather spend a little more for Ceylon and be safe.
