The Lebanese Mohallabieh Pudding
A Low Fat Recipe with Zero Cholesterol
I could say without hesitation that the Mohallabieh is the most made pudding in Lebanon. The term is a derivative of Haleeb, meaning milk. It’s basically a milk pudding that is fragrant with Mastic, Rosewater, and Orange-Blossom Water, and sweetened with sugar. It is served in individual bowls, topped with grounded Pistachio Nuts, and chilled for an ultimate refreshing and nutritious pudding.
This healthy recipe contains 1 gr fat only, and zero cholesterol. We use Low-Fat Powder Milk.
You and your children will love this Mohallabieh pudding for a light and sweet snack that is nutritious. It takes 20 minutes to get ready. I recommend you double the quantity because your family will be asking for more. 🙂
To Your Good Health, Enjoy!
