Norwegian Rice Cream

No Christmas without some good old Norwegian rice cream. We always have rice cream for dessert on Christmas eve, just because of the absurd almond competition where we all suddenly turn 5 and try to trick each other into believing that we’ve got the almond. When someone actually finds the almond we’re all suddenly full.

But rice cream is nice cream! I prefer it with cherry compote. From the shops yup, but you can of course make the sauce yourself. I do that myself sometimes.

The almond was supposed to be decorative, but it just ended up looking silly.


The porridge:

  • 500 ml water
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 250 ml porridge rice
  • 400 ml coconut milk (one large tin)
  • 750 ml soy milk
  • A little sugar and vanilla to taste if you like

Whipped cream:

  • 2-3 packs Gryr whipping cream (depending on how much whipped cream you prefer)
  • A little sugar/powdered sugar and vanilla sugar, optional

To serve:

  • Compote or raspberry sauce

This is how you do it:

  1. Bring water and salt to a boil, add the rice and let it simmer on a low heat until most of the water has evaporated.
  2. Add soy and coconut milk, sugar and vanilla and let the porridge simmer on a low heat until it has the preferred consitensy. This will take approximately 1 hour.
  3. Stir every now and then. It’s very, very important that the temperature doesn’t get too high.
  4. Let the porridge cool down completely before you mix it with the whipped cream (important!).
  5. Whip the cream. You can cool it in the fridge for a little while to stiffen it up.
  6. Mix the porridge and whipped cream together carefully, and add more sugar and vanilla if needed.
  7. I prefer real vanilla sugar by Oetker or Tørsleffs, or you can use a vanilla pod.
  8. I tend to avoid the horrible vanilla sugar by Freia/Ica, it only tastes of artificial vanillin!
  9. Serve with berry sauce or compote.
  10. I like to serve it with cherry compote, but homemade strawberry or raspberry sauce is also delicious.
  11. I made this sauce (siden finnes ikke), and I might make it again this year. I Highly recommended it! Raspberry is nice.
