For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

There’s something super comforting about rice pudding – creamy, sweet and delicious. Add all of that with a hint of sunshine with some coconut and tangy passion fruit and you’ll find it’s the perfect combination!

You can add any tropical type fruit you like to this Tropical Rice Pudding. I like passion fruit, but mango or pineapple would also work well.

Any pudding rice would work with this dessert, though we have found that Arborio rice cooks quicker and gives a good creamy texture.

This rich dessert would fool anyone into thinking it was high in Calories. Instead, this Tropical Rice Pudding is less than 400 calories!

You could even have some extra fresh fruit on top to make it even more filling!

How Weight Watchers friendly is this Tropical Rice Pudding recipe?

Rice is obviously not one of the most Weight Watchers friendly foods. This amazing Tropical Rice Pudding is 11 Smart Points per portion.

What is Sukrin?

We use Sukrin 1 which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin 1 over onAmazon UK.

Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange aftertaste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this Tropical Rice Pudding.

If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.

That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.

Synning the sweetener in this Tropical Rice Pudding

As you will probably know Slimming World brought out some new recommendations regarding the Syn value of granulated sweeteners. This means that:

Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend you 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 Tropical Rice Pudding uses 3 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 4 portions. That’s far less than a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any Syns on for the sweetener itself.

How do I make this Tropical Rice Pudding?

Step 1

Add the rice and milk to a saucepan on a low heat. Cut the vanilla pod in two and scoop out the seeds, adding them and the pod to the saucepan. Cook for around 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until the rice is tender and creamy.

Step 2

Once cooked, stir in the sweetener and juice and zest of the lime.

Step 3

Serve immediately topped with one half of the scooped out passion fruit over the top, and one half to garnish.

    1. Hi Susan
      Rice can sometimes be more absorbent that suggested, depending on the type used. As mentioned in the recipe blurb, we tend to use Arborio rice, rather than pudding rice, as we prefer the texture.

    1. Hi Sue
      A vanilla pod gives the most intense flavour, but if you don’t want to use one you can add a teaspoon of vanilla extract.

  1. Hi, I have made this several times – its delicious! However, I do agree with Susan, the quantity of liquid versus arborio rice isn’t right. I made it this afternoon with 200g of arborio rice and it was perfect. You may need to adjust (decrease) the amount of lime and sweetener accordingly.

  2. I’d like to try this for breakfast. Do you think it would keep in the fridge ok if I made 4 portions and had it over 4 days?

    1. Hi Ceri
      The rice pudding would keep for up to 48 hrs in the fridge.
      Just a word of advice – although rice is a free food, this is considered to be a tweak when following the SW plan.
      Obviously, this comes down to personal choice, but if you’re substituting it for cereal or oats then you could potentially end up eating more than you ought to, as you’d still have your HexB too – this is where the tweak factor comes in!
