This superfood breakfast pudding made using our fragrant and nutrient dense Heirloom Black Rice flour is easy to whip up and can be served warm or cold.
This idea is inspired by Jamie Oliver’s Everyday Super Food black rice pudding, but being lazy and lack of time/patience, we have cut down to just 3 steps! With our heirloom black rice flour, we were able to skip all the black rice cooking and blending steps.
Why black rice for breakfast?
Make a switch from your white porridge to black rice! Of all rice variety, black rice is richest in powerful disease-fighting anthocyanin antioxidants, which also has anti-inflammatory properties, and is rich in potassium and magnesium.
Milled from pesticides free semi-polished medium grain black rice, our heirloom black rice flour is fragrant, nutrient dense, and provides high fibre content, and is preferred for people who are on diet.
Research from NUS has found the ability of black rice to slow down absorption of carbohydrates, thus improving blood sugar control and is diabetic friendly.
Black rice breakfast pudding (serves 3)
For the pudding:
- 7 tablespoons of heirloom black rice flour
- 2 cups of milk (any milk of your choice – nut milk will give more flavour than cow’s milk or soya milk)
- 2 tablespoons of raw honey
- Pinch of fine sea salt or himalayan salt
For the topping (actually anything you fancy, here are our and Jamie’s suggestions):
- Toasted nuts of your choice (we use walnuts, almonds and pecans), or crunchy cereal of your choice
- Sliced bananas or grapes
- 6 passion fruits (2 for one serving)
Bring the milk into simmer and add 7 tablespoons of heirloom black rice flour, whisking constantly to avoid lumps. Turn down the heat once the mixture starts to bubble and thicken up.
Add a pinch of fine sea salt or himalayan salt, 2 tablespoons of raw honey and mix well. Turn off the heat. Your pudding is ready!
Assemble! Scoop the black rice pudding into a bowl, or a glass or a jar.
Add sliced bananas or grapes.
Spoon over two passion fruits, so that it forms a bright yellowish layer on top of the black rice pudding. The tartness from the passion fruits balance up the pudding very well.
Top with toasted nuts or crunchy cereal.
Assemble fast, this pudding tastes better when served warm.
You can of course chill it and enjoy the next morning.
