Not a good idea - it is usually made with a white rice (high GI carb) and with lots of added sugar.Originally Posted by leg_press
If you do want 'cream of rice'/rice pudding then make your own with basmatti, brown rice or wild (or a mix with basmatti, brown, wild rice), skim milk and protein powder.
Here is a recipe I know of from John Berardi. I have never tried it, but I know people who have and who enjoy it.
• 1 cup cooked basmati rice. Prepare the basmati rice in bulk by adding a cup of rinsed rice to 1.75 cups boiling water, cover and simmer on low heat for 15 minutes, remove from heat and fluff with a fork.
• 2 cups skim milk
• 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (you might add some Splenda to get the desired sweetness).
• 2 tablespoons sugar-free instant Jell-O vanilla pudding
On medium-low heat, simmer the cooked rice in milk for 20 minutes or so, until rice bulks-up, cover and cool for a few minutes, then add the protein powder (and Splenda if necessary), and a dash of salt, stir, cover and put in fridge until it cools. Add Jell-O mix to cooled mixture, whip, and you're all set.
