The Benefits of Eating Rice Pudding

By  | 

Rice pudding is an elegant comforting treat that can be served warm on a winter night or chilled as an icy summer treat. Add fruits for natural sweetness, plus aromatic spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg to elevate its flavor profile further.

Eating this delicious comfort food is good for your health, packed full of calcium, iron and fibre.


Rice pudding becomes a high-protein treat when combined with protein powder, providing you with a nutritious snack or meal to build lean muscle and maintain a healthy weight. Plus, post-workout recovery benefits from its presence too – helping avoid muscle tissue breakdown while aiding recovery!

Your choice of milk can make an important impactful statement about its nutritional quality and value in protein rice pudding. Full fat milk tends to contain more fat and calories while skim and plant-based alternatives have lower amounts.

Whisk the egg, sugar, vanilla extract and cinnamon together in a small bowl with an electric whisk until combined. Slowly incorporate half the rice mixture to the egg mixture while whisking continuously. Heat on low until it thickens slightly before serving warm or cold as desired with additional cinnamon topping if desired.


Rice pudding provides an excellent source of calcium, an essential mineral essential for strong bones. Inadequate calcium intake can lead to osteoporosis – a disease more prevalent among older adults.

Combine milk, ice cream and sugar in a large heavy pot and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently to prevent scorching. Continue simmering until rice is tender while constantly stirring to prevent scorching; vanilla should be added during the last ten minutes of cooking time.

Add in the granulated sugar and vanilla extract and stir until everything is evenly distributed. At first, the mixture may seem soupy; however, as it cools it should thicken into an elegant dessert that you can serve both hot or chilled. Garnish as desired with cinnamon powder before serving immediately!


Rice pudding’s combination of high protein, low sugar and fibre content make it an excellent way to help manage weight. Furthermore, diabetes patients can benefit from its soluble fibre which has the added advantage of controlling their blood sugar levels more slowly.

If you want to increase your fiber intake, opt for brown instead of white rice as this type is higher in fiber content and helps promote regular bowel movements and prevent constipation.

Making low-fat milk dessert is an easy and delicious way to satisfy a sweet craving without going overboard on calories and other nutrients. Simply adding raisins can add sweet touch without the additional calories; to boost its flavour and aroma even further you could sprinkle grated nutmeg onto it for garnish. Plus this dish only takes 30 minutes on your stovetop!

Dietary Fiber

Rice pudding is an excellent source of dietary fiber. Fiber has long been recognized for its ability to help curb appetite by fooling the brain into believing you have consumed enough. Furthermore, fiber helps avoid constipation while managing blood sugar levels.

Combine rice, water and salt in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce to simmer covered for 15 minutes until all of the liquid has been absorbed by the grains. Next add milk and sugar; continue cooking over medium heat uncovered until porridge-like in texture; make sure not to allow pudding to boil as this will curdle.

Optional ingredients could include vanilla for an intensely rich taste and cinnamon sticks to add depth of flavor, along with nuts or dried fruit for texture and nuts or dried fruits for crunch. A pinch of saffron adds an exotic flair.

Make sure to use medium-grain white rice or similar varieties like bomba and arborio (the same ones used for risotto), which will create the creamy consistency required in this recipe; dairy-free individuals can substitute full-fat canned coconut milk as an alternative.
