Cinnamon Rice Pudding with NoodleSlim Rice

I will admit that I wasn't sure if this would work at all but nothing ventured, nothing gained and I really like how it turned out. Rice Pudding is such a great comfort food so I really wanted to come up with a low fat version and put my own spin on it.

Cinnamon Rice Pudding
1 portion of NoodleSlim rice
1 tbsp cinnamon 
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp vanilla extract
150ml almond milk
2 tbsp cornflour 

1. Place all the ingredients in a small saucepan and stir until combined
2. Heat over a medium heat and continue stirring 
3. When the mixture starts to thicken, reduce the heat and continue stirring

4. When it has thickened sufficiently, remove from the heat and serve in a bowl.

You can add fruit as a topping. I chose bananas but you could choose berries.

The cinnamon gives the distinctive brown colour to the pudding. You may think the seasoning is quite a lot but NoodleSlim rice has no flavour on its own so it needs strong flavouring or the pudding would be tasteless. The NoodleSlim rice softens but does retain more bite than ordinary rice. This reminded me a little bit of semolina pudding.

The recipe makes two generous portions which are 4 Smartpoints each. The pudding can be kept in the fridge and is delicious cold! 

So it's a bit of an unusual way to use NoodleSlim rice but sometimes it's good to try something really different and I wanted to show the versatility of the NoodleSlim products. Speak to you soon
