  3. Pour cream into a bowl, and whip until light and fluffy soft peaks appear. Fold into chilled rice pudding. Serve in small bowls, topped with frozen raspberries.

Easy to make. Definitely top it with berries, otherwise, it was like eating those plain-o store bought rice pudding. I didn't enjoy it but my daughter thought it was good.
