It’s no secret that Jonathan is the science major in this whole Smarter Science of Slim thing, while I am the creative, arty one – which is funny because I can’t paint to save my life, and I’m not particularly crafty, either. But give me food or pixels, or food and pixels, and I’m all over it.
So it is with a huge amount of pleasure that I share with you a dish that Mr. Bailor himself introduced me to: *SANE Rice Pudding. Of course I fiddled with it slightly – heaven forbid that I could make something WITHOUT TWEAKING IT FIRST. I don’t care who gives me a recipe – it ain’t going to be posted on my blog unless I’ve made it with my own hands first; and then eaten it. Even if it is just assembly.
It’s the easiest thing in the world to make, and you can eat it for breakfast or dessert, or any time in between. You can make a big batch for the whole week and just keep it in the ‘fridge. There’s gobs of protein in this puppy, so if you struggle with getting enough protein in, consider a cup of this after lunch or dinner. Or both.
And of course, it’s got no rice in it – but it really does remind me of rice pudding – except it doesn’t make me fall asleep, put on weight, or grow a muffin top.
- 1 cup / 8 fl oz. non-fat cottage cheese
- 1/3 cup / 1 oz. / 30g vanilla whey
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon – it doesn’t take much!
- Xylitol or equivalent sweetener to taste, if needed
- Stir ingredients gently in a bowl until completely mixed.
- Sweeten to taste, if required.
DING! That was easy.
