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 👍

This dessert uses a quarter of your Healthy Extra A allowance with Alpro coconut milk drink per portion.

Though if you wish to syn it, it would be 6 syns for the whole lot – other coconut milk drinks vary greatly so do check the syn value and Healthy Extra amounts before using.

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

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

What is Sukrin?

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.

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 Syn Free 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 Syn Free Tropical Rice Pudding

As you will probably know last year 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 Syn Free Tropical Rice Pudding uses 2 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 4 portions. That’s a quarter of a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

    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!
