We love a warm pudding & here is a gorgeous creamy rice pudding that is easy to make, is gluten free & absolutely delicious.
This is the basic vanilla recipe. You can add so many different elements & flavours, depending on what’s in your pantry & what tickles your fancy. In this batch we added cinnamon, strawberries, blueberries, almond slivers & pistachios.
Can be eaten at anytime of the day. We have been eating it for dessert, breakfast & as a snack. Thermomix instructions included. Enjoy!

We’ve been thinking for a long time about how to make a Christmas pudding without all of the dried fruit. We can’t think of a Christmas without a delicious pudding and some custard or ice cream on the side.
We’ve decided to do two versions of Christmas pudding.
This one is for those people who are happy to make it on the day. It literally only takes a few minutes. So whilst the family is making a start on the dishes you could whip this recipe up.
This pudding was inspired by our favourite Sugar Free Recipes iPhone and iPad Cookbook App, “Sweet Poison Recipes”, by David Gillespie.
We love custard. It may not be cool or fashionable but there is something very comforting about a warm bowl of custard and it is something we have always had at Christmas.
When you go sugar free there are some classics that you have to learn to make without packet convenience – and custard is one of those classics.
It is actually surprisingly easy to make and tastes so much better when made from scratch, with fresh ingredients instead of a powder.
All it needs is a good stir!
We know a lot of you are not only sugar free but also gluten free or grain free on Paleo or Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) inspired eating plans. This gave us the idea of developing a Christmas pudding that was completely sugar, grain and lactose free. So on Christmas you too can enjoy pudding with everyone else.
