Today, we’re doing another Baking with Toddlers post and making a delicious and gorgeous Christmas dish of Swedish rice pudding with raspberry sauce. It’s sounds fancy, but it’s super easy to make, and a great one to get toddlers involved in! We’re partnering with fairlife ultra-filtered milk for our recipe today.
Have you heard of fairlife milk? It’s high in protein, lactose free, reduced sugar (cut in half!). They start with high quality milk from independent American family famers committed to humane animal care and sustainable agriculture. Then, their unique filtration process concentrates the milk’s natural ingredients like protein and calcium while filtering out lactose and reducing the sugar.
A cup of fairlife ultra-filtered milk contains 13 grams of protein and half the sugar in conventional milk. Every cup of fairlife milk is a good source of 9 vitamins and minerals without any artificial hormones. So it’s more of the good stuff from milk and less of the bad! Hooray!
We found a great recipe for our Swedish rice pudding with raspberry sauce here at Saveur. The ingredients you’ll need are: milk, arborio rice, vanilla, whipped cream, raspberries, sugar
First we poured 8 cups of whole fairlife milk into a pot. Stir in 1 1/4 cups of arborio rice (risotto nice), and 1/4 cup of sugar. Let cook, stirring frequently for about 40 minutes until liquid is all absorbed. Add 1 1/2 t of vanilla.
Time to test our raspberries while we wait!
Mash mash mash 2 cups of raspberries, and add 2 T of sugar. You could do this in a blender but mashing is kind of the best toddler activity ever (you might even have time to check your email for a second while they’re going on at).
Mix your rice pudding with 2 cups of sweetened whipped cream, and spoon into bowls.
Drizzle the raspberry sauce around, top with a couple more raspberries and mint for decoration. So delicious! Creamy but not too sweet, and so festive.
So much fun spending time in the kitchen with this crazy three year old!
