Warm “Rice” Pudding

Here’s a yummy way to add some fiber to your diet:

Warm “Rice” Pudding

1 cup Hood Calorie Countdown Dairy Beverage (or 1/2 cup cream + 1/2 cup water)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon Fiberfit Liquid
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons glucomannan powder
1 package orzo-shaped shirataki noodles

Whisk “milk,” vanilla, Fiberfit, and cinnamon together in a glass bowl.  Slowly whisk in glucomannan powder.

Rinse shirataki noodles under hot water in a colander; drain.  Add to pudding and mix well.  Microwave for 2 minutes on high.  Stir and serve.

This makes 3 servings @ 1 net carb each (with Hood).

If you don’t have the orzo-shaped noodles, you can cut another shape into small pieces.

You can let the pudding cool before eating, but I recommend heating it first and not just adding the shirataki noodles to the cold pudding because the noodles absorb the vanilla flavor while cooking.

I tried the “Rice Pudding” without heating it; it stayed fluffy, even with the noodles added, and still tasted good.  I tried a shape called “mini pearl pasta.”  I prefer the orzo shape, but this was good, too.  I even gave some to my son and he liked it.

The texture with the noodles and the glucomannan powder is strange, but the taste is good.  I finally figured out what texture the noodles have: gummy bears!  They aren’t sweet of course, but that’s the texture they have.
