Enjoy a Low-Calorie Rice Pudding Recipe

· October 9, 2018
While you may associate dessert with sugar and calories, low-calorie rice pudding is a healthy, well-balanced alternative. Here are two great recipes!

Many people think that desserts have to be full of calories and sugar. However, they don’t have to be. Today, we’ll show you how to make low-calorie rice pudding.

First of all, you’ll need skim milk. We recommend it for your cholesterol and because it’s low in fat. Plus, one cup contains 300 mg of calcium. Therefore it’s perfect for people who need more calcium, like women during menopause.

In this article, we’ll show you a recipe that’s healthy because it’s low in fat and high in calcium. It’s a great way to watch your weight and give your health the attention it deserves. Of course, you’ll also need a balanced diet and physical activity.

Low-calorie rice pudding is an excellent part of a balanced diet; it’s not only low in calories but also high in protein and carbohydrates.


  • 1 cup of white rice (170 g)
  • 4 cups of skim milk (1 liter)
  • A grated orange peel (from one orange)
  • A grated lemon peel (from one lemon)
  • A natural sweetener
  • 1 cinnamon stick, or cinnamon powder

All of the ingredients are easy to find. In addition, they’re all-natural and therefore better for you than other desserts.
