Rice Pearls a la’ Baked Apples

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 2 bags No Calorie Rice Pearls
  • 1 Pack Simply Delish Pudding (sugar-free)
  • 4 large apples, cored and slightly hollowed
  • 1 tablespoon honey/brown sugar


  • Preheat oven to 180. Wash and core apples. You want to make the hole about an inch in diameter, so there is enough room for stuffing. Place cored apples in a lightly sprayed rimmed baking dish.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk and prepare your choice flavor Simply Delish pudding (sugar-free).
  • Drain, rinse and pat dry your No Calorie Rice Pearls before combining with your pudding. Fill apples with the pudding mixture (pack it down slightly).
  • Bake, uncovered, for approximately 35-50 minutes (this time will vary depending on your apples, so keep an eye on it). To test for doneness, pierce apple with a knife. If it slides through fairly easy it’s done. Serve with a drizzle of honey or grill with a sprinkle of brown sugar!

Remove from the oven, and spread the brown sugar, and sprinkle with the cinnamon powder, and put under the grill

No Calorie Noodle Kugel

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 4 Eggs
  • Quarter cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground Nutmeg
  • 2 bags No Calorie Noodles
  • Half cup fat-free yogurt
  • Half cup fat-free smooth cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup Raisins, dark or golden
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  • Drain, rinse and dry your no calorie noodles before combining with raisins in a large bowl.
  • Beat the eggs in a separate bowl. Add the sugar and beat together until the mixture is thick. Beat in the yogurt, cottage cheese, vanilla, nutmeg and a pinch of salt to taste.
  • Add the noodles and raisin mixture and fold everything together. Scrape into the prepared baking dish. Push the pasta down into the egg and yogurt mixture (it will not be completely submerged, but try to cover as much as you can).
  • Place in the oven and bake 40 to 45 minutes, until the kugel is set and the sides are browned. There will always be some noodles on top that brown and become quite hard. You can remove these from the baked dish if you wish.
  • Allow to sit for at least 10 minutes before serving. Serve hot, warm or at room temperature.
