Rice Pudding 1

‘Rice Pudding’

Serves: 1

Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a great week! Yesterday was another day of gorgeous weather! Absolutely amazing! I took some time to get outside and soak up some of that sunshine…it felt sooo good! Too bad today and tomorrow will be filled with heavy showers! Can’t win them all though, right?! πŸ˜‰

Today’s recipe came about from an extra bag of cauliflower that I had sitting in my fridge. I had originally planned on making a cauliflower crust pizza , but for some reason that didn’t happen. So, instead of letting this wonderful vegetable spoiled, I turned it into something sweet to satisfy my craving one day. It was so good I ended up making it two days in a row! The cold version, would be perfect for these warm days we are having….or the hot version for the cold rainy days πŸ˜‰ I hope you enjoy!

Fit Ingredients

  • 1 c (170g) riced cauliflower (about 1.5c before ricing)
  • 1 c coconut milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1 tbs (7g) vanilla whey (or egg protein) *
  • 1.5 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (more or less to taste)
  • Optional: raisins, walnuts, shredded coconut

*Can add more if you’d like


  • medium pot



1. Bring your riced cauliflower and coconut milk to a simmer in your pot.

2. Simmer for about 8 minutes, making sure to stir so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom.

3. Add in the remaining ingredients and continue to simmer for about ~5-7 minutes or until the cauliflower becomes thick and creamy.

4. Serve in a bowl. Garnish with additional toppings, if desired.

Rice Pudding 5

This recipe can be served hot or cold. I ate it both ways and found that I enjoyed it more the next morning when it was cool.Β  It was even thicker after sitting in the fridge and much creamier too! I topped mine with walnuts and additional raisins and it was the perfect quick snack before yoga! πŸ™‚ Don’t worry…..there isn’t a trace of cauliflower flavor in the recipe either! πŸ˜‰

  • One thing is for certain - I am making this tonight, what a truly excellent way to use cauliflower! I made the pizza crust for the first time this weekend and I'm a complete convert.. Scrummy! :) x

  • It amazes me the things you can do with cauliflower, seriously. I've just recently become obsessed with cauli rice. I didn't even think of turning it into a sweet treat!

  • Leave it to you to come up with this kind of recipe, because I would have NEVER thought of doing this with a head of cauliflower. The idea of eating it cold for breakfast sounds awesome. I think I would add chia seeds and nut butter too. YUMMY! Stay dry today....

  • This is awesome! You are so creative!!!

  • Seriously?? You are ridiculous. And I mean that in the most awesome way possible. I don't like rice, but I always like the warm flavor of rice pudding. So this is just pure genius. I mean, I know cauliflower rice is all the rage, but pudding? That's a new (and genius!) one.

  • I spy a happy face!!! :) I love that with the happy face from raisins. If it is not, in my mind it was! :) I eat cauliflower but it is not my fave veggie so this is a great way to snazz it up! :)

  • Love it. So creative. Pinning :)

    Sarah this was an amazing post workout breakfast! I made it before the gym and let it cool in the fridge while I was sweating away to see if I'd like it chilled or warm better. Definitely warm for me! This is definitely getting added to the breakfast rotation! Thank you!!!!
