Let's ice the rice!

Before you ask about the silly title, it's a Rice Pudding Ice Cream.

Don't the quenelles of ice cream look like gigantic rice grains?

No? It's just me then. It's possible. The lack of sleep does have some strange effects on me. I've been quite busy lately, that's why I haven't been arround much. But life is slowly going back to normal so here I am! And with ice cream!

I love Rice Pudding! Love it! Rice pudding was what my gradma allways made on Sundays or on any special ocasion, so in my family rice pudding is THE dessert. Don't be mad at me for not sharing the recipe, but the truth is... there is none. My grandma allways eyeballs it and so do I (of course, I've learned from her). But the good news is that I'm sure this ice cream will work with any rice pudding.

RICE PUDDING ICE CREAM

  • 2 cups creamy rice pudding*
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp glucose or corn syrup

* My rice pudding was flavoured with orange and cinnamon. Other ingredients were: rice (obviosly), milk, sugar, salt and egg yolks.

Mix the milk and glucose (or corn syrup) and heat just to melt the glucose. Add to the rice pudding. Blitz together until you have a thick liquid (I've used an inmersion blender). Pass through a sieve to discard some stubborn rice grains. Let it cool completely and churn.

I did feel a bit bad for "destroying" my rice pudding, but it was so worth it! Perfect for the warm winter days we are having arround here!

And now some Thank Yous: Thank you Magnolia Mom for the "Your site measures up" award, thank you Mavele for the "Blog amigable" award, thank you Dragon for the "Inspiration" award and thank you Lisa Michele for the "Triple" awards! You girls all deserve a big bowl of rice pudding ice cream!

I have a friend who is the biggest rice pudding nut. If he saw this ice cream, he'd go bonkers. It's another one of your many very clever ideas.

Bob said...

That sounds wicked good!

Katrina said...

See, now I haven't had much luck with making rice pudding, as you may recall from TWD, didn't really love the stuff, but THIS really makes me want to try again. OR yor could just make some for me! ;)

noble pig said...

I thought Thomas Keller only used the word quennelle...I love it!

Maggie said...

I love diner rice pudding but only rarely make it at home. This makes me want to make a batch just so I can try some as ice cream. It looks wonderfully creamy!

Jeanine said...

Your ice cream does look like large grains of rice! too cool! Now I'm hungry for rice pudding...

Sophie said...

We've missed you! My grandma also used to make rice pudding all the time :). I love this idea! They do look like big granules or rice!

Jude said...

So interesting and creative! I'm thinking of adding a bit of toasted pinipig (flattened young rice) for a bit of crunch :)

Natashya said...

Great idea to make ice cream out of rice pudding! So creative.

I have looked for several years on the internet for a Rice Pudding Recipe comparable to my Aunt Mary's. I can find none. It wasn't even written down in her recipe box. It was one of those eye-ball things, I guess. Oh, how I've longed for the taste of her Rice Pudding.

Emily said...

How cool! All I can think is "what is the texture like?" I have had some bad experiences trying to freeze things with rice in them! Butu this sounds/looks awesome!

Steph said...

I never knew that rice could turn into icecream. How interesting!!

alexandra said...

this is incredible. and yes, the quennelles totally look like large rice grains. i think you are some what of a genius, too, turning rice pudding into ice cream and all ... yum!

That would go well with an iced cold cinnamon latte or tea of some kind!

Emily said...

What a fanastic idea! I love rice pudding, so I could easily eat it as an ice cream.

Cakebrain said...

You don't realize how much I really want to eat that right now...

Y said...

Yum yum yum! I love rice pudding AND rice pudding ice-cream! Wish I could have some now! :)

Zen Chef said...

When quenelles of ice cream start looking like gigantic rice grain it's time to get some sleep Rita. :-P
I love this! Perfect for undecisive people like me. Ice cream or rice pudding? Let's have both! :-)
