Arroz Sin Leche

Those of you who know me well, know that I have a gigantic sweet tooth. Well, it's not that big anymore... but I do enjoy dessert every now and then. Hence, this arroz sin leche recipe. With 5 grams of protein per serving and no sugar, it might just be the healthiest version of this latin classic.

The hardest part of this yummy dessert is cooking the rice. I bought about a pound from the bulk section and cooked it according to instructions from the internet. If you buy a specific brand, please follow the instructions from the bag to ensure that the rice is cooked thoroughly.


1 cup of brown rice
2 1/2 cups of water
2 cloves
2 scoops of Arbonne's vanilla protein powder
1 1/2 cups of coconut milk
1/8 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 cup of raisins
1/4 cup of cranberries
1/4 cup of pecans

Paso a paso:

1) Cook the brown rice in the 2 1/2 cups of water (with the cloves) over low heat for about 40 minutes.

2) While the rice is cooking, in a shaker combine the coconut milk and Arbonne's protein powder. Refrigerate.

3) When rice is cooked, remove from heat, and get rid of the cloves and add the protein shake.

 4) Put the mixture back on low heat and add the dash of cinnamon, the raisins and cranberries. Take off the heat when desired consistency is reached.

 5) Serve in ramekins and garnish with pecans. Sprinkle cinnamon al gusto.

6) Enjoy it before your family eats it all. =)
