Simple Rice Pudding

For some reason I've developed an addiction to rice pudding. I don't know how it happened, but I just LOVE this stuff so much. It's become on of my favorite post lunch/post workout treats. And since it's just rice, sugar and milk, it's not a bad post workout treat either. A good amount of simple carbs and some protein. I did try to cut down on the sugar by subbing in some stevia and it turned out perfect!

Simple Rice Pudding
Prep 5 min
Cooking 1 hour
Servings 8


  • 3/4 cup long grain rice (135g)
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 cups reduced fat milk (2%)
  • 1/4 cup sugar (48g)
  • 1/4 cup stevia in the raw (6g)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


  1. In a small pot, bring rice, water and salt to a boil.
  2. Let the rice simmer, covered, until the water has been fully absorbed (about 15 minutes).
  3. Stir in the milk, sugar and stevia and cook, uncovered, over medium heat for about 30-40 minutes, stirring continuously to avoid burning, until it's reaches a thick and creamy texture.  
  4. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  5. Transfer to bowls and let cool. Can be served at room temperature or chilled for later. Keep in an airtight container in the fridge.
