Low Syn Cream Soda Rice Pudding

Delicious and creamy, low syn and so easy to make. This Slimming World friendly rice pudding is a winner with all of the family.

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. 

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.

  1. 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 ?

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

  3. 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?

  4. 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?

  5. This is the first time I made this rice pudding and I must say this ticked all the right boxes for me I do like to have a nice little treat this I hope I can find something else low syn pudding thanks for this
