Best Ever Cream Soda Rice Pudding | Slimming World Friendly Recipe

Delicious and creamy, low syn and so easy to make. This Slimming World friendly rice pudding is a winner with all of the family. Only a few simple ingredients to throw together this delicious dessert.

There are two types of people in this world… Some who like rice pudding and some are strange! Just a personal opinion there of course, but I literally adore the stuff. With Jam, Apple, Nutella, Cinnamon, Raspberries or simply on it’s own. 

Is this recipe Slimming World friendly?

Many many moons ago I created this recipe before the meanies at Slimming World decided they were going to create something called a “tweak”. Before this disaster the recipe was classed as Syn free. Unfortunately that is no longer the case. 

What is a tweak I hear you say?

A tweak is when you use a particular Syn free food in a way it is not meant to be consumed. 

Slimming World state:

Rice puddings made up with diet drinks: Using diet soda (or any other Free liquid, including water) to make up pudding rice is a tweak as it makes bulky Free rice – intended to be eaten as part of a satisfying, Free Food packed meal – very easy to overeat between and after meals.

For this reason I would recommend allowing 2 Syns per portion.. but again I will leave that decision up to you. 

Why you’ll love this recipe….

    I’m cooking this right now but the rice doesn’t seem to be thickening up ? I doubled the ingredients above and am now simmering it.

    What am I doing wrong? Or so I just keep simmering? Help please ?

    Love the rice pudding recipe with soda & the new Mullerlight yogurt vanilla cheesecake flavour makes it even more creamier.

    I made this tonight and it’s lovely. However I made too much. Does it keep till next day ok? Can you reheat it due to having yoghurt in it?

    I wouldn’t reheat but delicious cold with a chopped banana

    Hi. This sounds lovely thank you. Just wondering how the syn value is 2 per portion? Do you have to Syn the Rice or Soda? If not using one Muller light for the whole recipe would be 1 syn for the whole lot?
