I have been on this healthy kick lately, but I really don’t want to give up eating dessert. One of my favorite things to snack on are these Paleo Cauliflower Dessert Rice Pudding.

Cauliflower Rice Pudding

The ones in the stores aren’t fattening, but they are filled with preservatives. I figured that I would try to make it myself with cauliflower rather than regular rice to make the recipe Paleo.

While rice is not so bad, I would rather eat my grains in the form of bread. MMM bread! One of my favorite things on earth…but I digress.

Health Benefits of Cauliflower

Cauliflower is a pretty amazing food and is said to have tons of health benefits. I am not a medical doctor, but based on what I have been reading: Cauliflower fights cancer, boosts heart health, works as an anti-inflammatory, boosts brain health, and also has digestive benefits.

It is also rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients. It’s filled with goodies like vitamin C, beta-carotene, kaempferol, quercetin, rutin, and cinnamic acid. Antioxidants help provide your cells with extra defense against free radicals.

Antioxidants in the body help resist aging caused by your everyday exposure to pollutants and stress.

Cauliflower Dessert

This Cauliflower Dessert is the perfect dessert for someone who is trying to lose weight or maintain their current weight.  

This cauliflower rice pudding is fat-free, vegetarian, paleo, gluten-free, sugar-free and it still tastes great! You can learn all about how to eat paleo here with this beginner’s guide.

Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Rice

I used a bag of frozen Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Rice, but you could definitely make your own and get even more nutrients from fresh organic cauliflower.

Make it Whole 30 Cauliflower Rice Pudding

To make this Whole 30 Cauliflower Rice Pudding, you will need to use Whole 30 compliant Coconut Milk or Almond Milk.

My favorites are Trader’s Joes Coconut Milk or Thai Kitchen Unsweetened Coconut Milk. Also, for Whole 30, you can skip the sweetener.

Paleo Rice Pudding Recipe

Ingredients

  • Cauliflower Rice
  • Cinnamon
  • Egg white
  • Honey

4 tsp of honey is about 5 drops of stevia and 5 drops of monk fruit

To make this cauliflower rice pudding recipe good for those of us on the Paleo Diet, you need to use non-dairy milk to help make the pudding creamy.

The process of making pudding is pretty simple and the egg whites are the key ingredient to thicken it up.

For flavor, I used cinnamon throughout the process and then added some cinnamon on top at the end.

To add the sweetness of pudding, I used 2 tablespoons of Honey and then added 2 more spoonfuls at the end because I wanted the rice pudding to be a little sweeter.I made the pudding in my Premium Stainless Steel Casserole Pan.

It is extremely easy to use pan that I keep using again and again. The last recipe that I published using it was the Italian Wedding Quinoa Soup

How to make our Cauliflower Rice Pudding?

Start by adding 1/2 the cauliflower rice to large sauce pan so that it covers the bottom of the pan. Set the stove to medium heat.

Add the almond milk into the cauliflower rice. Mix the cauliflower and almond milk together so that it line the bottom of the pan.

Wait until the bubbles start and cover for 5 minutes.

Then, take the cover off and add the sweetener (honey or alternative), the remainder of the cauliflower rice, and cinnamon. Mix the everything together and let simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.

Next, take the pan off the heat and mix in the egg white so that it coats the cauliflower.

Add the pan back on the heat and keep stirring until the mixture thickens. It should take about 2 minutes.
