Keto Rice Pudding with Cauliflower

You'd never guess this keto rice pudding is made with cauliflower! With my secret method, it has the the same creamy texture we all love about rice pudding. Cauliflower rice pudding is not only amazing comfort food, it's also super healthy - and keto, with just 3.8g net carbs per serving.

  • 10 x 8 inch baking dish (or smaller)


  • 1 large cauliflower, in florets 300g / 10.5 oz
  • 1 cup / 240g heavy cream (double cream)
  • ¼ cup / 60 ml almond milk unsweetened
  • ½ teaspoon grated nutmeg or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 egg yolks large
  • 1 teaspoon arrowroot powder or ¼ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ¼ cup / 40g golden Lakanto
  • 1 tbsp / 15g butter + some for the dish
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest from roughly 1 lemon


  • Pulse the cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse until chunky. Place in a glass bowl, cover and microwave for 3 - 4 minutes. Squeeze out the water using a muslin cloth or fine tea towel. Place in a bowl and fluff with a fork.
  • Preheat the oven to 150C/300F and butter a 10 x 8 x 2 inch baking dish. (You can use smaller if you prefer.).
  • Place the cream, almond milk, half the nutmeg and vanilla in a pan and heat until hot, but not boiling. About 2 minutes.
  • Mix the egg yolks, arrowroot (or xanthan gum) and 3 tablespoon of sweetener together in a bowl using a hand balloon whisk. Add a little of the hot milk and whisk again to combine. Add the rest of the cream mix slowly, whisking continuously. Place back on the hob to thicken. About 2.5 minutes. Stir through the cauliflower rice.
  • Place in a baking dish and sprinkle with the remaining nutmeg/ cinnamon, 1 tablespoon of golden Lakanto and lemon zest and dot with butter.
  • Cook for 15 minutes until golden on top.

For a speedier version, skip the oven step. Simply keep the pudding on the stove for a further few minutes, then stir through the butter and serve with 1 tablespoon of golden Lakanto and the rest of the nutmeg or cinnamon plus lemon zest.
