Today, we are happy to share with you the recipe for a fan favorite — Rice Cream with Strawberry Sauce from Epcot’s Norway Pavilion!
This classic Norwegian dessert can be found on the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall menu in the dessert section. But fans who aren’t interested in booking a table for the princess character encounter can also find this sweet treat at Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe.
Because Rice Cream is a chilly, rich dessert, it makes a fun alternative to ice cream. And it’s also a good choice if you aren’t in the mood for sugar shock; the sweetness here comes from the beautiful, bright red strawberry sauce, which complements the creamy rice pudding perfectly.
This adapted recipe does not require fresh strawberries, making it a perfect option for an autumn dessert when the summer berries aren’t in season. 🙂
I’m thinking this would make a lovely addition to a holiday dinner, no?
Rice Cream with Strawberry
Ingredients for Rice Cream:
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup short-grain white rice
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Ingredients for Strawberry Sauce:
1 cup strawberry preserves
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
In a 3- or 4-quart saucepan, bring 11/2 cups of water to a boil with the salt. Add the rice, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook the rice for 15 minutes or until all of the water has been absorbed. Add the milk and simmer for 20 minutes or until all of the milk has been absorbed. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and let cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, in a blender, combine the strawberry preserves, 1/2 cup water, and lemon juice and blend until smooth. In a bowl, whip the cream with the sugar and vanilla. With a rubber spatula, fold the whipped cream mixture into the rice.
Transfer the rice pudding to a large bowl or to individual serving bowls and drizzle with strawberry sauce.
