Chocolate Rice Pudding

Sorry for the lack of updates recently. I've decided to knit most of my Christmas presents this year and it's been keeping me really busy. I start work next week though (yay I'm employed, wooo, money!! WIN! etc etc) and I want to make the most of my freedom and get some good cooking done.

As everyone in the UK knows, it's been snowing a lot. I've been stuck in the flat for the last few days and I just cannot stop eating. I dunno what it is about this weather but it's turned me into some kind of binge eating beast. I had a baaad day food wise yesterday and wanted to cut down on my syns today. I also fancied chocolate. So this how I ended up making todays marvellous recipe.

Chocolate Rice Pudding

  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder (9 syns)
  • 1 litre soy milk (Healthy Extra A)
  • 50g sweetener (or 100g sugar if you want the full fat version)
  • 125g pudding rice
  • splash of vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 150C. Grab a large mixing bowl and put the cocoa powder in there with 4 tbsp of boiling water. Whisk.
  2. Gradually add the soy milk and whisk it up some more
  3. Add the vanilla and sweetener/sugar....whisk
  4. Add the rice...and you got it. Whisk whisk whisk.
  5. Pour the mixture into a greased oven proof dish (I sprayed some fry light into mine so I didn't have to syn any butter/oil)
  6. Bake in the oven for 1 hour 45 minutes, stirring every 15-20 minutes to stop the skin that forms on top from burning.
So the recipe for this is supposed to serve 4, but they are 4 massive portions. I had the full portion though, it was bloody laaavely and I couldn't help myself. The full portion gave me 1 healthy A extra and was 2.25 syns. I added a strawberry soy yogurt to it (another 2 syns) and it was really good. That was just me being a bit of an obscene greedy cow though. OBSCENE.

Anyway, enjoy!
