Slimming World slow cooker rice pudding  

serves 6 
2 Syns per serving 
ready in 3 hours 10 mins 

What you need: 

175g dried pudding rice  
700ml skimmed milk  
4 level tbsp sweetener granules  

For the vanilla slow cooker rice pudding: 

2 vanilla pods, split in half lengthways  
2 tsp vanilla extract  
500g fresh blackberries (or your favourite fruit), optional 

For the chocolate-orange slow cooker rice pudding (3 Syns per serving):  

1½ level tbsp cocoa powder  
Orange segments  
1 level tbsp chocolate dessert sauce  

For the cinnamon and apple slow cooker rice pudding: 

½ tsp cinnamon  
½ tsp nutmeg  
chopped apple, to serve  
small mint leaves and pared lemon rind, to serve (optional) 

What you do: 

1. Rinse the rice under cold water and drain well. Tip it into your slow cooker with the milk and 500­­ml water, then stir in the sweetener. To make the vanilla rice pudding, scrape the vanilla seeds from the pod and add to the pot with the vanilla extract. To make the chocolate-orange version, stir in the cocoa powder. And to make the cinnamon and apple rice pudding, mix in the cinnamon and nutmeg. 

2. Cook on high for 3-4 hours, or until the rice is tender. If you’re having vanilla rice pudding, stir through the blackberries (or other fruit), if using; if you’re having chocolate-orange rice pudding, top with the orange segments and dessert sauce; if you’re having cinnamon and apple rice pudding, top with the chopped apple, mint leaves and pared lemon rind, if using.
