Made for ZWT-8 Family Picks, this as an insanely creative idea for a smoothie! I took heavy cues from the other reviewers. Like Sydney Mike, I subbed a frozen banana for the ice cubes since I dislike the watered-down effect that melting ice creates in a smoothie. I also used a well-frosted glass for its chilling effect. All reviewers agreed about the need for a sweetener, so I added 1/2 packet of Sweet & Low. My only negative was that 1 tbsp of vanilla extract made that flavour excessive for a single serving. This is another appealing "dessert in a glass" recipe that also uses up leftover rice (if it's still very moist) & is also worthy of making rice just to make the smoothie. I liked this a lot. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. Edited to Add that I used my stick-blender w/a wide-mouth lrg jar to make this recipe in a flash. :-)
I'm with the first 2 reviewers in adding a bit of sugar! Also substituted a frozen banana for the ice cubes, but other than that, the recipe was followed! Absolutely delicious, for sure! Will be making this one again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in the current Let's P-A-R-T-Y! event]
I made this for toddler DD hoping I could get her to have rice as she doesn't normally eat it. She wasn't keen on this one as the rice was still solid going through her straw, this one was for mummy, I love rice pudding so for me I quite liked this, I did add a sachet of equal to sweeten it a bit though, very nice!
