Low Carb Creamy No Rice Pudding

These delicious creamy pots of Low Carb Creamy No Rice Pudding taste absolutely divine. You would be hard pressed to guess that you weren’t eating rice pudding, as the flavors are sensational. They taste like a cross between a rice rice pudding and a delicious creamy baked custard. The texture is created by using cottage cheese to replace the rice, which it does beautifully. I also love the benefits that using cottage cheese adds to the recipe.

Sub half of the cream for unsweetened coconut cream.

  1. Karen, I must send my congratulations for this recipe, what a winner. Wasn’t sure about the cottage cheese but as I have loved other of your recipes I gave it a go. My my, it’s beautiful, well done once again.

  2. 5 stars
    I forgot to sprinkle on the cinnamon before baking and so had fun trying different flavourings once these puddings were cooked. Cardamom worked especially well (my favourite spice), but a wondrous breakfast was had when I dusted on a generous amount of cacao and added blueberries and more cream. Yum!!! Next time I make them I’ll add some finely sliced lemon zest to the mixture – can’t wait.
    Thanks Karen, this is a real winner!

    1. Thanks Helen. You inspired me to make these. I love cardamom as well- it would be great in this recipe. My favorite way to eat it is with a dollop of cream but I may have to try it for breakfast as well.
