Rice Pudding, in the slow cooker!
Updated: Jul 18
Slow Cooker Rice pudding.
I am a fan of making life as simple and cheap as possible. Instead of using the wicked sisters rice pudding, making up my own at home with my slow cooker is a much cheaper way of creating this delicious option!
I really LOVE rice pudding, and will use it for a pre or post-training option, especially if I am fitting training randomly into my day.
What I love about it is I can add 1/2 a scoop of my Chocolate Swift Recharge protein powder, and it becomes a chocolate rice pudding. Or I even have some clients add milo.
1 litre (4 cups) milk - use lactose free if required.
1 vanilla bean, split lengthways, seeds scraped or 1 tsp of vanilla essence
1 cinnamon stick
165g (3/4 cup) medium-grain white rice
70g (1/3 cup) caster sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Firstly, rinse the rice under cold water.
In the slow cooker, add all the ingredients and mix until sugar is dissolved.
Cook on high for 2 & ½ to 3 hours or until the rice is cooked and the liquid is creamy.
The duration you cook this pudding may vary depending on the slow cooker you are using. The high setting may be slightly different from the one I used for this recipe. if you are unsure, keep an eye on it for the first ten minutes and make sure it maintains a light simmer and not a boil.
Rinsing the rice under water helps remove a lot of the excess starch, rids of foreign matter and also just helps for a lovely tasting rice pudding. You will also notice the rice will not clump as much if you rinse it first,
This makes 4 serves, butttt depends upon your training goals, and how many grams of carbs you need to fuel your training or refuel from it.
