Properly creamy, sink-your-spoon-in rice pudding is a wondrous thing. We’ve gone heavy on the comfort here, but eased up on the calorie and fat count.

Ingredients

  • 100g pudding rice
  • 750ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 2-3 tbsp clear honey to taste
  • 4 tbsp full-fat Greek yogurt to serve

Method

  1. Put the pudding rice, milk and vanilla paste in a large saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer over a very low heat, stirring so it doesn’t stick to the base of the pan.
  2. Simmer for 50 minutes, stirring occasionally at the beginning and more often as the rice swells, until it’s tender and the consistency is creamy. Stir in 1 tbsp of the honey.
  3. Divide among 4 bowls, top each with a tablespoonful of yogurt and a drizzle of honey to taste, then swirl through and serve.

  1. Rice pudding is notoriously calorific, but simple to make healthier. We’ve swapped the classic cream and full-fat milk combination for semi-skimmed milk, adding just enough Greek yogurt at the end to give that essential creamy texture.
