I love using unsweetened almond milk; it’s thicker than cow’s milk, and I also like recipes which are vegan friendly and therefore suitable for people who cannot have dairy.

As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. Slimming World have confirmed what this change means.

Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend members count 0.5 Syn per tbsp. If using smaller amounts, like a pinch or teaspoon, there’s no need to worry about Syns at all.

The recipe for this Low Syn Spiced Rice Pudding uses 3 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 4 portions. That’s 3/4 of a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

When making rice pudding, it’s really important to get the right sort of rice. You can use either pudding rice or arborio rice. I prefer to use arborio rice as I find it keeps a more al dente texture.

I like a quite dense, baked rice pudding like this one – if you prefer it more runny then add some water into the pudding halfway through. This can also be cooked on the hob but would require constant stirring and would probably take around 45 minutes to cook.

Lets talk about nutmeg! You can use your bog-standard ground nutmeg for this Low Syn Spiced Rice Pudding recipe. But, having said that nothing beats the taste of freshly grated nutmeg, so here at Pinch of Nom we always like to go for the freshly ground option.

You’ll need a very fine grater for this, you could even get one like this which is specifically for nutmeg. You can pick one up for a few pounds on Amazon.

  1. This is just divine I used to make it with water and milk using my normal milk allowance didn’t realise u got so much more allowance on Almond Milk and this was so creamy I did mine in the slow cooker cause I don’t like the skin rice pudding makes in the oven…

    Iv used half the milk for my allowance well I used 400ml milk but only 100ish grams of pudding rice as I’m planning to have the whole lot to myself(no one else will eat rice pudding) and oh 1tbs of sweetener so 1/2 syn for the whole lot

  2. Just to let you know, this is showing up on the vegetarian search but muller lights are not veggie – they contain gelatine. I’m guessing that you could just use fat free natural yogurt instead and add a bit more vanilla extract?

  3. I make a syn free rice pudding that I love. It’s not as solid as this one though. Mine is not an exact recipe; I chuck the pudding rice in a saucepan and cover with sugar free cream soda. I let it cook in the pan until it’s sucked up all the liquid starting to go crispy on the edges. Then stir in a muller light and enjoy. I used to make the same mixture in the slow cooker over night (needs much more liquid to prevent burning the house down though), then stir in yogurt and free berries to have as an alternative to porridge in the morning.

    1. Hi Karen,

      You can use cows milk but would have to alter the amounts or syn accordingly. It may also affect the cooking time so you’ll have to experiment!

      Hope that helps!

    1. Hi Laura,

      Yes I should think it would freeze ok in portion. You might need to loosen it with some extra milk once it defrosts.

      It would keep in the fridge for a few days. Be sure to reheat thoroughly – you might need to add some extra milk to loosen it.

      Hope that helps!

    1. Hi Colette
      You can get Sukrin on Amazon or the Sukrin website. We like using it because it is exactly the same weight, consistency and sweetness of normal sugar so you can just replace sugar one to one. It also doesn’t have the nasty taste that other sweeteners do because it’s not artificial

  4. Made this in the slow cooker at the weekend, absolutely loved it and so did my other half. So easy to just bung it all in and leave it and Certainly doesnt feel like a diet.

    1. Hi Nicola
      Yes, you can make it in the slow cooker. It would probably need about 4 hours on high, but check to ensure the rice has absorbed all the liquid and is cooked.

  5. After just over an hour there wasn’t a drop of liquid left in mine. Added the yogurt but was afraid to leave it in for another 30 mins so took it out after another 5. Will definitely try it again, probably at a lower oven temp

    1. Hi Niamh
      In the blurb of the recipe page, Kay does mention that she likes a thicker, dense, more baked rice pudding. She also suggests that if you like it runnier you should add more water. Hope that helps.

  6. I found that 300g was way too much rice (even with added water and an extra muller light) and made it very thick. The flavour was good, but I’d try halving the rice quantity next time.

  7. I’ve made this without the spices, only the vanilla for flavour and it’s delicious. Also made it in the microwave successfully. Great to eat anytime.
