R is for Rice Pudding - My version.




One thing which never ceases to amaze me at Slimming World is the originality and strangeness of some of the recipes. I wonder who on earth puts some of the ingredients together?
 
I was experimenting with a Rice Pudding recipe - using cream soda. One of the gals had tried it out and thought it was too sweet and sickly - so I tried my own take on it, but using lemonade instead of cream soda. I didn't have any pudding rice so tried long grain rice. Basically I put some rice into a microwave dish and topped up with a can of diet lemonade. Microwaved on full power for 10 minutes and checked to see the lemonade had not dried up. I added another can and microwaved for a further 10 minutes then left to stand for 10 minutes then stirred in a tablespoon of crème fraiche. Tasted absolutely gorgeous. Comfort food in a matter of minutes. Tip - use a large microwave dish as the lemonade rises a lot!
 
This is my T contribution for ABC Wednesday - I am really enjoying this round.

  6. I would have never thought of this in a million years. I just may have to be adventuresome and try it.
    Rice pudding always reminds me of my Mom. She made it often.

  7. Good old fashioned rice pudding, with raisins, was always one of our favourites, but this sounds like an appealing experiment!

  11. Ha! Well you learn something new everyday. My mom used to make rice pudding but with all the non slimming goodness in it. Boy back in those days we made everything with whole milk and butter. My mom lived to be 90!

  15. My Dad and I have the story about rice pudding. He went to England and stayed in the hostel where they fed him English food. Many years later, I went to Canada.
    When we went to an English restaurant, we misread the menu, that rice was rice. My had had an extra servicing. It came as rice pudding. Tasted like our boiling running rice porridge with sugar.
