Cinnamon Raisin Rice Pudding

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.

Cinnamon Raisin Rice Pudding

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.

Romy - Dear Carrie

Since the beginning of your podcasts with Jonathan I read your blog. Your post are always very entertaining and interesting to read. I’m often a bit sad that I can not eat dairy (cannot digest milk protein) when I see your delicious recipes. I would love to eat the milk rice ;-)

I’m living a paleo lifestyle since almost 3 years and do shot intensive workouts 3 times a week. I feel great and my energy level has never been better.

I live with my family in Zurich (Switzerland) and together with my husband I wrote the first paleo lifestyle guide for German speaking people. It’s an iBook which will be released mid of December. We are already working on a English version. The iBook full of colorful pictures and interactive tools.

I’m looking forward to more of your podcasts and blog posts. Thank you very much.
Kind regards
Romy

Sylvia - Oh so easy and oh so YUMMMM!!!
Carrie, I’m really enjoying all your delicious recipes, but I have a question about this one. Due to being insulin resistant, I’m currently off all carbs and sugars, so should I leave out the raisins in this recipe or is the natural sugar contained in raisins negligible?
Thanks in advance for your reply and thank you and Jonathon for debunking all the rubbish we have been fed (pardon the pun) by so called “experts” on diets and diet fads over the years. I get so cranky when I think about all the WRONG information these people have been brainwashing us with and it’s great to be getting information which can be scientifically backed.
Cheers!
Sylvia

carrie - Hi Sylvia! I am not a doctor or other medical professional, but if I were you I would leave out the raisins until your insulin situation is resolved. Raisins have quite a lot of natural sugars in them, but your body cannot tell the difference between them and refined white sugar. You and us both on getting cranky about mis-information!!

carrie - Romy – THANK YOU so much for all your support! We so appreciate you. Thank you too for your kind words. I am thrilled that Paleo has ben so good for you – that is awesome. And you get to live in such a beautiful country. Thanks for stopping by – it’s lovely to “meet” you.

Colleen - Seriously awesome! My new favourite way to eat cottage cheese and I love raisins! Doesn’t even need any sweetener. Could it be that I’m starting to lose my sweet tooth!!! Thanks Carrie (and JB)!

carrie - It’s amazing what a bit of spice can do!

Bob - Carrie,

I’ve never liked cottage cheese. I simply don’t like the texture. I tried this recipe and I really like it. It tastes like rice pudding and the protein powder changes the texture to make it more custardy. Great work.

Thanks,
Bob

carrie - So glad you loved it, Bob!! Thanks for taking time to comment :-)

Rebecca - Carrie this is delish! I normally hate cottage cheese in sweet concoctions but this is awesome. I threw some sunflower seeds in mine because I too can’t help but fiddle – but with or without I will definitely make this again.

carrie - Love the sunflower seed thing, Rebecca!!

Jerel - I so wanted to love this recipe, but this tasted bad. I’m starting to zero in on the fact that I’m finding I don’t like the taste of the Opt. Nut. vanilla protein powder. I know you don’t specify which protein powder in the recipe, but you have mentioned that this is the powder you use. It just tastes too “chemically” to me. Is there no unflavored protein powder out there? I’d rather add my own flavor to things. Please help!

carrie - Jerel – I think you may be what is known as a “super-taster”. I think you’re right about the problem being the protein powder you used. Unfortunately it is the only protein powder I have used (it’s the one JB recommends so I never felt the need to try any others) so I can’t give advice on how others taste. I found some unflavored ones here: http://www.amazon.com/s/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&linkCode=ur2&page=1&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Aunflavored%20protein%20powder&tag=foodifootn-20 but you might be better off focusing on egg white powder as your protein powder instead: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006ZN4WU/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B0006ZN4WU&linkCode=as2&tag=foodifootn-20 Hope either of those suggestions help! Most people love this rice pudding and I want you to, too!
