My 14yo is complaining that she's getting bored with her foods. She can go months eating the same things every day, but then suddenly she  gets sick of that and wants something different. Last year she was all about the smoothies before school, but she's only done that once this year, and didn't really like how it made her feel.

She really misses being able to grab a glass of milk the way her B brother can. She misses rice pudding, yogurt, and cereal with milk. I can make or buy compliant granola cereal, but then what does she eat it with? She doesn't like the taste of almonds or soy, and anyway soy doesn't seem to agree with any of us, so I no longer buy that. Rice milk is pure carbs, and not a good base for a quick meal or snack.

Does anybody have any clue how I could make a rice pudding that tastes good and isn't pure carbs?

Just use water, add banana, walnut butter?, pumpkin or sweet potatoes to thicken or add oak flour to the mix and don't forget the cinnamon or maybe cardamom

I think I'm fresh out of oak flour. Would pine or beech flour work instead?

My old recipe called for about half a cup of raw rice and 4 cups of milk, plus sugar and vanilla. The milk provided protein and fat. I think if I made this with water it would be very bland, and I don't have enough rice milk in the house (besides, how would that differ nutritionally from adding another 1/4 cup of rice to the mix?)

Pine needles are good in Chile and beans.

what about adding some walnut oil? or ghee? still not much protein. Egg whites? I've never done that myself so don't know if it would work.

Lola, I've seen dozens of recipes for non-dairy milks. The almond milks taste too "almondy" for DD2's taste, and the grain-based milks are too carby to make a real "milk substitute" nutritionally. Coconut and cashews aren't BTD compatible. Yet she expects me to magically make her rice pudding that tastes just like dairy rice pudding, will fill her up in the mornings before school, and is BTD compliant for Os.

I'm vaguely, remembering a recipe, from a long time ago, where one would whip egg whites, almost stiff, then add rice and sweeteners, pour into a 9X12 greased pan, bake, and when finished, the top was a golden yellow in color, so I'm wondering, if the top had beaten egg, on it, sprinkled with sugar. (Not sure, but remember, it was very tastey) and I wasn't much of a rice eater.  I'm sure raisins could be added, to it,too.

OK, here's what I decided to do:

I've only tried the "almond milk from almond butter" method, which DD2 doesn't care for. I figured that making almond milk from blanched raw almonds may yield something more like milk and less "almondy". So I made a batch of that, which used 1/3 cup almonds and 2 cups of milk. Then I took a look at our "tried and true rice pudding recipe" and saw that it calls for 5 cups of milk, 1/2 cup each of rice and sugar, and 1 egg (added at the end.) I cut the recipe in half and used the whole batch of almond milk, plus 1/2 cup of homemade rice milk, and then 1/4 cup of white rice and 1/4 cup of honey.

At the end of the recipe, I'll still use a whole egg instead of using half an egg (or just the white or just the yolk.)

I'll let you know how it comes out. Once the recipe is perfected, I'll post it to the recipe database.

I made a batch of rice pudding today, using a combination of almond and rice milk (and rice, and vanilla, and an egg, and honey). It's for her breakfast tomorrow morning, so I'll let you know tomorrow how she enjoyed it.

ruthiegirl, I noticed that you'd just posted last night that you would serve the rice pudding this morning.  Did it pass the test?

You could always throw a little butter in there when you cook it for extra creaminess and dairy flavor, too

She's eating it, but she's not 100% satisfied with the flavor or texture. It's too thick and not sweet enough for her taste. I think next time I'll make it with sugar rather than honey.

I also want to experiment with making it with water, not almond or rice milk, and adding the egg at the end. That would majorly simplify the process. That, or I'll use all almond milk and use the normal amount of egg (1 egg for every 5 cups of liquid, not 2.5 cups) so it's not too thick.

I've made a rice pudding in my crockpot and let it cook all night.  I'll often mix it with millet or just millet by itself as the grain instead of the rice.  I haven't tried quinoa yet, but it's a thought.  It's ready to eat in the morning.  I've been using rice milk, which I know you said wasn't your choice, Ruthiegirl.  I add some compliant sweetner and cinnamon.  I put the crockpot on high for about an hour before going to bed and then down to low for overnight.  It's great to wake up to the wonderful smell in the morning and breakfast is ready.  I usually make a large amount cause my husband likes to eat it later too.

That is too funny? No...but I imagine they may have been thinking of suggesting "oak milk"

I was going to suggest millet as it so quick to cook too I used to eat it for breakfast & either add a dash of cream & then extra water, or just stir in butter (& extra water) if I wanted a more savoury taste...

That would still be "all grains" in the morning. I'm making a breakfast, not a dessert. I want to add almond milk or enough eggs to provide some protein to the pudding.
