Mini Ambrosia Rice and Custard Pots

I love custard and rice pudding and those made by Ambrosia are especially delicious. However, I rarely buy these foods any more. Too much sugar, too high in calories etc etc.

But, they do say a little bit of what you fancy is good for you, and there is a way of indulging in these snacks without worrying about the calories.

Ambrosia’s mini pots of rice and custard are just 55g in size and contain a mere 55 calories.

Ambrosia already sell individual pots of rice and custard and a Light Rice option see post. The 120g pots of creamed rice have 121 calories, while the 125g pots have 126 calories.

To be honest, I think these mini sized pots are aimed at the younger members of society – namely toddlers and small children! But there’s no reason why grown ups can’t treat themselves to one of these pots now and again.

These mini pots are perfect for the 5:2 diet or whenever you just need a little bit of creamy sweetness. Eat them with a teaspoon to make it last a bit longer because there are only about 4 heaped teaspoons worth in each pot.
