Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Chocolate Rice Pudding
This slow cooker chocolate rice pudding is a follow up to the 2-Ingredient Crock Pot Chocolate Rice Pudding I made a couple weeks ago.
While it was good, I wanted to try to make one with richer, deeper chocolate flavor.
So, I decided to adapt this chocolate rice pudding recipe.
Still really easy with just a couple more ingredients, it was the rich and creamy deep chocolate slow cooker chocolate rice pudding I was hoping for.
The Skinny on Slow Cooker Chocolate Rice Pudding
The key to this crock pot chocolate rice pudding’s creaminess is short grain rice (arborio), which is what you use for risotto.
I used a combination of almond milk and evaporated skim milk, since that was what I had on hand. The calories are a bit lower (175 instead of 199), if you use all almond milk but not enough to change the Points.
Each serving of this rich and creamy slow cooker chocolate rice pudding has 199 calories, *5 Weight Watchers PointsPlus and *10 WW Freestyle SmartPoints.
Slow Cooker Chocolate Rice Pudding Recipe
- 3 tablespoons cocoa
- 4 tablespoons water
- 1/2 cup short grain rice (arborio or calrose)
- 4 cups skim milk (I used a combination of almond milk and skim evaporated milk)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 1-1/2 Quart
- Grease the inside of the slow cooker.
- Stir together the cocoa and water in the slow cooker. Then whisk in the milk, sugar and rice.
- Cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours, until the rice is tender and mixture is thick. (If you can, give it a stir every hour or so)
