Fruity Sugar Free Rice Pudding Recipe

Fancy something sweet but fed up of baking? Worry not because with a whip of a spoon we can make a delicious dessert on the oventop too!

Before gluten free was a thing rice was not widely considered as a base for dessert. Probably not even considered today but people now have heard about making things from rice flour and such. Therefore making something sweet from rice isn’t as strange as years ago when the only dessert made from rice was rice pudding.  It’s passed down from mother to daughter for generations. No advanced skill needed just a couple of minutes at the hob.

Then here it is a naturally gluten free dessert. It didn’t need any trick or modification just plain rice and milk. Traditionally we should put sugar into it to make it from somewhat edible to delicious but we substitute some of that ingredient with honey. This won’t make it anywhere near sweet enough to be enjoyable so adding some natural candies will tilt the scale into the territory of deliciousness and healthiness.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Brown rice (white is fine too)
  • 1½ cup Water
  • 1½ cup Milk
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon Honey or sweetener of choice
  • 7 oz / 200g Fruits of choice
  • ½ cup Whipping cream for decoration (optional)

How to make:

1. Pour rice, boiling water, milk, honey and the vanilla into a medium size saucepan.

2. Cook it in medium to low heat, stir time to time. Do not let the rice to stick at the bottom of the saucepan as after that it can burn fast and believe me, burnt rice hasn’t got pleasant taste.

3. Keep cooking it until we see only a little bit of liquid on the top. Then turn the heat off and put the lid on top of the saucepan. Leave it until the rice soaked in all the liquid.

5. Check rice if it’s cooked properly. It should be soggy and soft. (If it’s too hard it may need a bit more milk into the saucepan and leave it longer.)

(In the meantime whip the cream.)

6. When rice is cooked, start putting them into bowls. Layers look cool: rice, fruit, rice, fruit, whipped cream, fruit.

On hot summer days it's perfect dessert straight out of the cold fridge. In the winter we can serve it hot without cream straight after it is ready. In either way, fruit rice is a delicious dessert for any day of the week.
