Chilled Summer Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is an English classic. This recipe adds a twist of flavours and is best served cold along side the fruit combo. It’s enough for four people and surprisingly only about 150 calories per portion.


  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 pint whole milk
  • 60g risotto rice
  • 40g runny honey
  • 4 cardamon pods (broken with the back of a knife)
  • Rind / juice of a small orange
  • Grated nutmeg
  • 1 mango – diced
  • 50g strawberries – diced

What to do 

  1. Butter a medium size earthenware dish (big enough to take about 700ml of liquid).
  2. Put the rice, honey, milk, cardamon and orange rind in the dish and gently stir with a fork.
  3. Put lots of nutmeg on top and bake in the oven at 140c for an hour and a half.
  4. While it cooks mix the mango, strawberries and orange juice and set aside in the fridge.
  5. When both are well chilled serve a portion of the rice with the fruit along side.
