Skinny Strawberry Rice Pudding Recipe

Arborio rice cooked with milk and a little sugar and then combined with gently cooked sliced strawberries
Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 4 cups nonfat milk
  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom or 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced strawberries

Instructions

  • In a large saucepan, combine the rice, 1/4 cup of the sugar and the cardamom.
  • Bring the mixture to a gentle boil and then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer, stirring often to keep it from sticking to the bottom. Cook until thick and creamy, about 35 minutes. (The rice should be very soft and plump.)
  • While the rice is cooking, in a small saucepan, combine the strawberries and remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Heat gently, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves and the strawberries begin to soften, about 3 minutes.
  • Remove the pudding from the heat and stir in the strawberry mixture.
  • Let stand at room temperature to cool slightly. Serve warm or place in a covered dish in the refrigerator until chilled.
