WW Recipe of the Day: 2-Ingredient Chocolate Rice Pudding
I adapted this recipe for crock pot chocolate rice pudding from the Best of Bridge Slow Cooker Cookbook: 200 Delicious Recipes , where it was described as "silky, sensational and simple."
2-Ingredient Chocolate Rice Pudding Recipe Notes
Made with only 2 ingredients - short grain rice and chocolate almond milk - this crock pot chocolate rice pudding is most definitely simple.
Low-fat. Gluten-free. Dairy-free. And vegan.
Good, but less than sensational—it's creamy and not too sweet with a light chocolate flavor.
I enjoyed it for dessert, as a snack, and even as part of a slightly decadent breakfast one morning topped with fresh cherries—fresh berries would also be delicious.
The original recipe called for ¼ cup chocolate hazelnut spread which was imperceptible so I left it out, cutting about 100 calories per serving.
The key to this crock pot chocolate rice pudding's creaminess is short grain rice (arborio), which is what you use for risotto.
And chocolate almond milk. Unlike regular milk that can curdle in the slow cooker, almond milk can stand up to long slow cooking.
How Many Calories and WW Points in this Chocolate Rice Pudding?
According to my calculations, each serving has 126 calories and:
6 *SmartPoints (Green plan)
6 *SmartPoints (Blue plan)
6 *SmartPoints (Purple plan)
3 *PointsPlus (Old plan)
For a sweeter, richer chocolate flavor, you may want to experiment with additional sugar/sweetener and cocoa powder and/or chocolate chips. Be sure to adjust your Points accordingly!
