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.
