sugar free creamed rice for baby

Sugar Free Creamed Rice


  • 500 ml (2 cups) milk
  • 1/4 cup of brown rice (you could also use white but brown is more nutritious)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or you could use extract)
  • 1 small cinnamon stick
  • Honey or maple syrup to drizzle - suitable for babies 12 months plus


  • Combine milk, vanilla bean paste, cinnamon stick and rice in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Cover with a lid; lower temperature and simmer for about an hour to an hour and a half. (brown rice will take quite a bit longer than white rice).
  • It is ready when most of the liquid has been absorbed, keeping in mind it will thicken up quite a lot once cool. Serve warm or cold on it own, or drizzle with honey and top with fresh fruit


To sweeten naturally try adding a mashed banana once cooked and cooled
For little babies, add to a blender and puree until smooth. Try adding a date when pureeing for another flavour with added natural sweetener
