During the cooler winter months, cravings for warming, filling desserts and treats rise, making it difficult to lose pregnancy weight.
Luckily, there are plenty of ways to fulfill this need without ruining your healthy eating plan.
This recipe for Raspberry & Pistachio Rice Pudding is a delicious, low-calorie dessert or afternoon snack option that is packed with vitamins and minerals thanks to the raspberries and pistachios.
Mix the recipe up by interchanging different fruits and nuts for the topping – walnuts, almonds, macadamias, prunes, sliced banana and shredded coconut are all great options.


  • 1 cup of Arborio rice
  • 4 cups of reduced fat milk
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1-2 drops of vanilla essence
  • 1 small punnet of fresh raspberries
  • 4 teaspoons crushed, raw pistachios

Optional Extras:

  • Replace the raspberries with blueberries, chopped banana or kiwifruit
  • Substitute the pistachios with chopped walnuts or almonds
  • Use unsweetened almond milk instead of dairy milk
  • Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top


  • Put the milk, vanilla essence and honey into a large saucepan and bring to the boil.
  • Add the rice and simmer, stirring frequently on low heat for 20-30 minutes until the rice is cooked.
  • Add more milk if the liquid evaporates and the pudding mixture becomes too dry.
  • Once the rice is cooked (tender to touch), remove the saucepan from heat and let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Serve warm in dessert glasses or small bowls, with raspberries and crushed pistachios on top.
