CORE Creamed Rice / Rice Pudding

Serves: 3 - 4 (depends on whether you add fruit or prefer a large serve)

Difficulty: Easy - Just make sure you stir it - makes a mess if boils over or catches on bottom.


  • 2/3 cup white rice
  • 600ml nonfat milk
  • 150ml water - if needed


  • vanilla essense
  • sweetener
  • cinnamon/nutmeg
  • stewed fruit (Core) or sultanas (not Core)


Add rice and milk to a nonstick saucepan.
Warm milk until it starts to bubble, then turn to lowest heat and let simmer, stirring regularly so it doesn't stick.
Optional - add sultanas here
Optional - add vanilla and sweetener while simmering.
The milk will absorb into the rice. If it looks dry and in danger of sticking and the rice is not yet tender, add a little water. It should be simmering for around 20-30mins.
Optional - If adding fruit, add in the last 5 minutes just to warm through. Stewed or canned apples, peaches, apricots and pears are great, so is 2 fruits.

This is great hot or cold and also makes a great breakfast when you are bored with cereal.

Non-dieters might like to top with brown sugar, maple/golden syrup, honey or jam
(WWers can do this too, but don't forget to add the points though)


I've been told this works fine in the oven and has a golden skin
Bake at 165°C (325°F) for 1 hour or until rice is cooked, stirring occasionally.

I don't see why it wouldn't work in the microwave too - it's essentially just the "absorption method" with milk instead of water. Just use a tall container.

Also works well in slow cooker - allow about 4 hours

Not on Core? The total for this recipe is 10 points without fruit

This was absolutely beautiful. I added 2 tsp of sweetener, a couple of drops of vanilla essence during cooking and served it with a chopped banana and some Queen Maple syrup, divine!!!
