I have a wonderful Egyptian friend who almost always brings her special homemade rice pudding to our ladies’ pot luck parties. It is just so good….creamy and smooth…mmmm. So you can imagine how delighted I was when I received some rice pudding samples from Nestle Carnation……a normal one and a chocolate one. I always use the Nestle Carnation condensed milk and the evaporated milk but had not tried the rice pudding. In fact I never realised such a thing existed…haha. So I was excited to try.
I had never had rice pudding until I came here. I only remember that I had rice porridge mixed with condensed milk when I was young and I liked that very much. But the rice pudding here is more creamy.
I read the instructions and found it was really easy to follow.
Just pour the contents into a small pot. I cooked both the original type and the chocolate type. It’s the same way to cook them.
Add 270ml of milk and bring to boil. Keep stirring. After a few minutes, maybe 5 minutes (I forgot to check the time), cover it and leave for 5 minutes. Just cook till the rice is quite soft. Dish it up and serve. It takes about 10 minutes altogether.
This rice pudding is really simple and easy to cook. I find it creamy and delicious. Personally I find that the chocolate rice pudding is really chocolatey and delicious. It doesn’t taste too sweet. I find that the original one is a little too sweet for me. But for those who have a sweet tooth, this would be perfect.
The Nestle Carnation Rice Pudding range showcases four varieties - Original, Cinnamon, Chocolate and Caramel. Each packet contains a dessert mix, which transforms into a creamy tasting, homemade dessert by simply adding fresh milk, whisking and heating in the microwave or on the hob.
The different varieties in the Nestle carnation Rice Pudding range taste great on their own – but you can also try adding fruit, a spoonful of homemade jam or even a few chocolate sprinkles as a treat. Or try using Nestle Carnation Evaporated Milk to create an even creamier tasting pudding.
The range is free from artificial colours, flavours, preservatives and sweeteners. The Original, Cinnamon and Caramel varieties are also low in fat. Each pack contains enough rice pudding to make 2 servings and cost about 80p per packet.
So, if you like something quick, creamy and filling, give this a try. Have fun cooking!
