Did you know that it was recently National Rice Pudding Day? Summer celebrates pudding every month with National Chocolate Pudding Day on June 26, National Tapioca Pudding Day on July 15 and National Rice Pudding Day on August 9. We were very excited to celebrate National Rice Pudding Day at my house! Our favorite is Kozy Shak® rice pudding!
We don’t have much time to celebrate summer before the back-to-school season gets started. What are you up to before summer winds down? My kids have been hanging out with grandpa. He watched them while my husband and I went away for a few days to celebrate our anniversary.
I gave my dad some fun ideas for creating snacks with Kozy Shack® rice pudding. If I don’t give him some ideas for healthy snacks, he’ll fill the kids up with nothing but ice cream and candy. Luckily, my kids love these rice pudding options too!
Pudding for breakfast?
Yes! A combination of rice pudding with raisins and granola provides calcium, protein and grains to help my kids start their busy summer days. Best for grandpa is that my kids can make these easy breakfasts themselves.
A great afternoon snack for grandpa and the kids is rice pudding with fresh berries. It’s such a great time of year to get berries at my local farmers market like strawberries and blueberries. They pair so well with the Kozy Shack® rice pudding. My kids always want seconds!
My dad is watching his weight, at only about 200 calories, I taught him how to make a dessert treat that is just as delicious and satisfying as a much higher calorie option. One of my favorite mix-ins are ginger snap cookies. The entire family loves this one!

Kozy Shack rice pudding and tapioca puddings are my favorites. It’s a treat I hide from everyone else.
I’m not a big fan of rice pudding but I’d try the rice pudding with fruit or the rice pudding with ginger snaps combo. Thank you for sharing this post.
Thanks so much for sharing Celebrating Summer with Healthy Rice Pudding Snacks! We love Kozy Shack Puddings too! I love their rice pudding too! I have made it from scratch too! I believe that pudding is a great summer snack or dessert! I’ve made a couple of “pudding pies” this summer already! I just use an already prepared graham cracker crust for the pie crust! The first one I made was all chocolate pudding with whipped cream on top. Then I took some Kit Kat Bars and broke them in half and made flower shapes on top of the whipped cream! They all loved it! The second one I made, I put chocolate pudding on the bottom of the crust first and vanilla pudding on top of the chocolate. I then put the whipped cream on top of that as well. I took a chocolate candy bar and grated it up to sprinkle all over the top of the whipped cream! They loved this one too! I think before summer actually ends, I’ll make one with rice pudding because now I’m hungry for it! Thanks again for sharing Celebrating Summer with Healthy Rice Pudding Snacks with all of us! I honestly do appreciate the ideas! Thanks again! Michele 🙂
My son would be so astonished at pudding for breakfast lol!! He’d think I was nuts and then I’d be the coolest mom ever!!! As if I’m not already 😉 Thank you for the great ideas!!
