rice pudding

arroz con leche


Yield: 1 medium bowl (2.5 cups / 600ml)

Serving Size: 1/2 bowl (1.25 cups / 300ml)




  • 2 cups (480ml) unsweetened heavy whipping cream (OR 15oz coconut cream)

  • 1 tsp (5ml) vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon (or 1 cinnamon stick)

  • 1/4 cup (48g) keto bulk sweetener (powdered erythritol, Swerve, allulose, tagatose, etc.)

  • 8oz Miracle Rice (or other low-carb rice sub) (OR 12oz riced cauliflower, steamed and with excess water squeezed out)

  • 1 tsp guar gum (OR 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum)

  • 1 Tbsp (14g) salted butter (OR coconut oil)






As of 2019, it seems that allulose is not easily available outside of the USA, so try tagatose (almost identical to allulose) which is available on iHerb in most countries, linked below!

1. PHeat the cream together with the erythritol, cinnamon, and vanilla over medium heat. Once the sweetener has dissolved, add the rice substitute and bring to a simmer.

2. Sift over the guar gum in a thin layer, whisking immediately until very well incorporated. Continue whisking and simmering for a minute or two until the pudding starts to thicken slightly. At this point, remove the cinnamon stick and turn off the heat. Whisk in the cold butter until incorporated, then cool to room temperature and chill in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.

3. This pudding thickens up considerably once chilled, so I recommend waiting until it's fully chilled before serving. This pudding also tastes great with a few low-sugar berries for a tart contrast.














































When you're as obsessed with sweets as I am, skipping dessert is not an option, but all the "sugar-free" treats I find in stores/restaurants never quite taste like dessert. After discovering that GOOD low-carb dessert recipes are so hard to find, I started experimenting and creating my own. TPH exists so that diabetics, carb-resistant people like me, and anyone else looking to avoid sugar can enjoy truly decadent desserts that won't cause insulin resistance or tooth decay.
