Nutritional values

The oat drink is best suited for vegans and people with a lactose intolerance. Pay attention to added calcium when buying, so you can do good for your bones. The vanilla brings a delicious taste to the rice pudding and also has an anti-inflammatory effect due to essential oils. According to a Spanish study, cherries should be able to lighten the mood. It is suspected that the decrease of a stress hormone is responsible for this.

During the cherry season (June to September) you can also serve rice pudding with fresh fruit. It doesn't always have to be cherries, blueberries, strawberries, apricots or plums taste equally delicious with this vegan dish. You can serve the rice pudding for brunch, as a sweet lunch to take to work or as a dessert for 6 people.
