Keto Cauliflower Rice Pudding

Who knew cauliflower rice could be so versatile?! Well, I didn’t! I used to prepare non-keto rice pudding all the time, though now I wanted to make a keto version that was just as good!

Keto cauliflower rice pudding crossed my mind and I began testing the different ways I could make it taste just like regular rice pudding. 

My tests were successful, as I couldn’t believe how delicious it turned out. Now it’s most definitely one of my go-to desserts. 


Keto Cauliflower Rice Pudding Ingredients:

Vanilla Cinnamon Cauliflower Rice Pudding 
Chocolate Cauliflower Rice Pudding 


What is cauliflower rice?

Cauliflower rice is basically cauliflower thrown in a food processor, broken down into small pieces resembling rice.

The texture is a perfect substitute for anything that contains actual rice in the recipe. Even better is that it’s low carb, and cooks very fast.


Why unsweetened almond milk instead of whole milk?

Unsweetened almond milk has way fewer carbs than whole milk. It also makes this recipe completely dairy-free.

You could use coconut milk as a low carb option, but keep in mind that coconut milk has more carbs than almond milk.


What does it mean to temper eggs?

Tempering Eggs is the process of slowly warming the eggs before introducing them to your recipe, so they mix smoothly.

For example, if you have a hot pot of milk and stir in eggs, you’ll end up with little scrambled egg bits in the milk instead of a smooth mixture.
