Oh the things we associate with adulthood as kids. 

When I’m an adult- I’ll work a corporate 9-5 job, sit at a desk and have a black briefcase named Nigel.

Wrong. 

I tried that out and realised my fulfilment factor was at an all time low. 

When I’m an adult- I’ll have a beard, wear ironed Ralph Lauren shirts and matching ties. 

Wrong. 

One pair of track pants and a single hoodie gets more use than all my shirts combined. Also, Ralph Lauren shirts look like bloody muumuus on me. 

When I’m an adult- I’ll stop using hair wax, have a combover and never let my hair grow past my ears.

Wrong. 

I am a mop in human form

When I’m an adult- My sister and I will help my mother with the bills, discuss the current political climate and consider mowing the lawn fun. 

….I broke our lawn mover trying to find the ‘on’ switch. I was then informed that you had the pull the level and it required petrol to start up. 

When I’m an adult- I’ll drink coffee. 

Right. 

Oh coffee. They don’t call you liquid gold for no reason.

As a kid, this one was perhaps the biggest indicator of adulthood- Enjoying coffee and drinking it 0n a daily basis

I remember growing up, coffee was something which was deemed unsuitable for kids. Maybe it was the combination of caffeine and childhood development or maybe Oprah said it and my mum took it as verbatim but for me- It wasn’t something I grew up drinking.

Being the rebel I was, I’d enjoy coffee in every other form besides that. Whenever we’d get ice cream, coffee would be my flavour of choice and when given the chance to choose a candy at the supermarket, I’d always pick the Kopiko coffee drops (Side note- I am legitimately going to buy a pack the next time I’m at the supermarket…Craving = sparked). When it came to desserts, however, tiramisu would not be my first choice.

Why?

‘Tiramisu contains alcohol so you’re not allowed’. 

Traditional tiramisu doesn’t contain alcohol but mum had a Christmas issue of ‘Women’s Weekly‘ which had a theme of ‘adding spirits to everyday desserts.

Thanks mum. I hope an upcoming issue of the Women’s Weekly claim that sons should be treated like royalty over daughters

Safe to say, I never tried Tiramisu properly until I was at a high school formal and it was one of two desserts offered. To say I was a fan would be an understatement- I not only ate my own desert, but my dates tiramisu, my friends’ dates tiramisu AND my English teacher’s tiramisu. 

See what deprivation does? 

This Healthy tiramisu rice pudding is part of my the various rice pudding variations mentioned here. High in protein, sugar free, gluten free and vegan, this is the perfect healthy breakfast choice to prep the night before to eat cold in the morning or warm if that’s how you roll! The added protein powder provides a protein boost and the sweetness. The combination of coffee granules and cocoa powder provide the necessary dark, bitter taste which compliments it perfectly. For those who aren’t a fan of the caffeine in coffee (like Niki), I made this using decaf granules and it still provides the coffee taste, minus the….zing? 

Several readers who tried out the original Apple Cinnamon version advised me that for those watching their carb intake, can make it using a product called ‘miracle rice’ which is a pretty much carb free substitute. Whilst I cannot personally vouch for it, from feedback, it seems to be a great alternative so don’t let the ‘rice’ in the recipe hold you back!

Ingredients

Instructions

Stovetop Version

  • In a saucepan, add the cooked rice, sea salt, cocoa and coffee granules and mix well. Add you milk of choice and bring to a simmer on medium heat. After 5 minutes, add the vanilla protein powder and mix until fully incorporated. Add additional milk if desired and continue to simmer until desired thickness. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the coffee granules, cocoa powder and granulated sweetener of choice and mix well. If eating the pudding warm, top immediately and serve or reserve to top once eaten cold.

Microwave version

  • In a large, microwave safe bowl, add the cooked brown rice with the sea salt, cocoa and coffee granules and mix well. Add the dairy free milk and microwave for 1- 2 minutes, watching to ensure it doesn't overflow. Remove from the microwave and stir though the protein powder until fully incorporated. Add more milk (if protein powder is thick) and cook for an extra minute. Remove from microwave and set aside.
  • n a small mixing bowl, combine the coffee granules, cocoa powder and granulated sweetener of choice and mix well. If eating the pudding warm, top immediately and serve or reserve to top once eaten cold.

Notes

* For a carb free version, use 1 package of miracle rice
** For a stronger coffee taste, add an extra tsp or so
*** Eyeball the liquid. Dependant on your protein powder, you may need more or less. Similar to oatmeal, if you prefer a thicker rice pudding, reduce the liquid.

  1. My poor Mom thinks her kids will never be adults. My brother at least is married, but all he cares about in his life is to snowboard, surf and travel together with his wife (he turns 40 this year). And me, well – we know I am by far not grown up. Or where is my pregnant belly, my handsome caring husband and my gardener?

    You know I am not a huge coffee fan, but I guess I would just sub the coffee with double cacao 🙂

  2. I wrote a post about not feeling like an adult after turning 23 and my mummy emailed me to say that it still hasn’t happened for her…she’s 55.
    So, I pretty much give up on ‘adulthood’ haha
    This rice pudding tho, I’ll never give up on. #breakfastofchampions

  3. And it’s offical I need to hire you as my personal breakfast chef. Turning a childhood classic into a grown-up dessert-type breakfast? Sign me up!
    Me and my non-existent fiancé/at least boyfriend of many years living together in a purty apartment in a hip city. Both working in our dream jobs and making enough money to travel the world whenever we feel like it, obviously. So yes, I clearly need a little more time to let these adulthood scenarios become reality. Real life seems a lot easier and more achievable from a child’s perspective for sure.

  4. I think I would actually like this even though I don’t care for tiramisu because the flavor I don’t like in it is the alcohol. I don’t want alcohol with my chocolate thank you very much. But I love anything coffee and always have like you. I was the weird child ordering coffee ice cream at 5 years old. Glad I’m not the only one.

  5. I always thought that once I was an adult, I would actually have a good grasp on financial concepts like student loans and credit scores. Nope, I am 21 now and that hasn’t really happened yet. Maybe some day. That calorie-free “miracle rice” sounds like a slightly frightening product–I googled it and all it consists of is water, glucomannan (fiber), and calcium additive. At least rice has nutritional value to it!! I mean, if people choose to eat it, that’s not really my business, but I tend to be suspicious of those calorie-free products. The point of food is to provide you with energy, AKA calories…Rant aside, this recipe looks very tasty–I haven’t had rice pudding in years, so this provides me with an incentive to finally make some again. Even though I don’t drink coffee (I know, what college student doesn’t drink coffee??), I do enjoy the taste of it every once in a while, especially in desserts.

    1. Some day indeed! It doesn’t sound the greatest, but for those following a low carb diet, I suppose it’s a good alternative!

      Please do try it- It’s great seeing you on here again Kendra!

  6. You forgot the Lady Fingers soaked in wine that gives Tiramisu it’s characteristic spark. Don’t worry, I’ll add enough in mine for everyone 😉

  7. You guys, I’m never gonna grow up because I HATE coffee! And tea! Maybe it’s because my momma never let me have anything coffee (not even candy!) as a kid because of the caffiene. Okay, coffee isn’t so bad when it’s barely coffee AKA 1/2 cup of sugar and a wheelbarrow of creamer. Too bad because this pot o’ rice is making me salivate like a panting dog.

  8. as a kid, i always went for rum raisin ice cream because of the ‘alcohol’ and i always stole my dads coffee..(what im trying to say is i used to take a sip here and there when he was not around…and thats when i fell in love with coffee)..btw this is sooo happening!

  9. This is kind of freaky, because I literally pulled some chocolate rice pudding out of the oven about half an hour ago! Never made it before (burnt my lip trying it)! Wow, your Tiramisu version looks awesome! Let’s just say we’ll be trying one more time before posting anything on my end 🙂

  10. I am chuckling at all your when I am adult….but you are right about coffee. And looking at your recipe, I think this rice pudding would be the BEST way to start the day!

  11. Tiramisu may be one of my favorite desserts of all time…and knowing my sweet tooth, that says a lot! It was my first ‘fancy dessert’ that I learned how to make. I suspect I like it even more because I know it’s Italian, and we all know that everything Italian is amazing, right? 🙂 So tiramisu rice pudding. That’s straight genius. You’ve figured out how to have my favorite dessert for breakfast…and I don’t feel bad about it. That requires a virtual *fist bump*! Also, I totally resonated with your ‘when I grow up’ comments. For me, when I grow up, I’m going to enjoy reading the newspaper. Haha. Newspaper. What is that??

    1. Haha, when I posted it I was like…I wonder if Dave’s love of Italy extends to dessert.

      Omg. Mate. We will dine at Eataly. Yes.

      Sorry, that just clicked. My mum reads the newspaper for the PICTURES.

  12. I love your kid’s eye view of the adult world. And as for your view of the sibling relationship, well I think you need to let your sister do a guest post (or has she already?) to give us her side of the story. While I don’t like rice pudding, I’m so taken with this post, I’m almost thinking of giving it another try – or at least making this for someone who does love rice pudding. It looks so good, I could almost forget that you’ve taken out the sugar (from a sugar-lover) 🙂

  13. Totally a coffee addict, every which way.
    Tiramisu is just heaven on a plate, right?! So definitely making it into a breakfasty dish is the way to go. Love this…though you could totally swirl in some mascarpone and a splash of Marsala 😉

  14. How funny ☺️ I love that you picked out a name for your future briefcase! I actually grew up w parents who didn’t drink coffee so never thought about it until I dated a guy who loved it. I’m hooked on it now and tiramisu is my all time fav dessert next to Kahlua cake

  15. ooooooooooooh. tiramisu is one of Jason’s favorite things. I think I need to make this for him (since he did not get any of my salted caramel apple oats the other day…). I’ve got some ‘splainin’ to do.

    um, did I see you are MOVING TO NEW YOOOOORK? (I’m a dork). I am also officially jealous. YAY!

  16. What a yummy combination! I have never tried making rice pudding but tiramisu was one of my favourite desserts before going vegan.. This might be a great way to have it again!

  17. That’s great you’ve got such a passion for coffee throughout life – you ended up creating amazing stuff! Even though this tiramisu version doesn’t have any cream cheese, it still looks fabulous and luscious. I would definitely give this a try (if someone makes this for me) 🙂
