When I searched rice pudding on the WW app it ranged in points from 7 to 18!! I knew I could make it lighter than that.
(This post contains affiliate links. Please see my disclosure for more info.)
My rice pudding came out to 5 points for blue, green and purple.
It’s perfect for dessert or a snack. And it’s filling!
My daughter bought me a rice maker for Christmas. It’s pretty much the best thing ever!
I love making rice at home but it was always hit or miss before I got this rice maker.
This is the rice maker she bought me:
You simply add the rice and water, put the lid on and flip the switch. You’ll have perfect rice in 30 minutes!
I was a little too excited the first time I used it and ended up making 6 cups of rice. I had so much leftover I decided to make rice pudding.
The main way I was able to lower the points in this rice pudding was by not using any whole milk or cream. Instead I used skim milk.
Instead of using sugar I used granulated Splenda. You can use whatever sweetener you prefer, or even sugar. Just make sure to add the points.
For this recipe I used rice that was already cooked. I like to use jasmine rice. If you have leftover rice from a Chinese restaurant that would be perfect too.
I added the cooked rice, skim milk, Splenda and salt to a saucepan and let it cook over medium heat for 15 minutes.
When it was done I added some vanilla extract and sprinkled cinnamon over it.
This rice pudding also tastes great with some fat-free Reddi Wip. You can have up to 4 tablespoons for 0 points.
My daughter loves rice pudding and she approved of this recipe. That’s really impressive considering she likes the super creamy, high point rice pudding at restaurants. 🙂
Yield: 4 servings (5 points for blue, green and purple)
