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!

  • Hello. Can I use milk for this recipe? How many ml? Thanks 🙂

    • Hi Nat, the general rule is that 4 Tablespoons of powder milk or dry milk can be substituted with 1 cup of liquid milk, discarding the water in the recipe. However, I recommend substituting the 3 cups of water in my recipe with 3 cups of milk since the powder milk I used is low-fat and instant.
      Let me know how it comes out with you.
      All the best!

    • Hi there! Of course, you can use milk 🙂 Substitute the 3 cups of water with 3 cups of normal liquid milk. It is the original recipe. I use low-fat powder milk to get a low-fat dessert of same taste and consistency as the original; something low-fat liquid milk would not produce. However, if you want to try it, and would be pleased with the overall outcome, let us know please. 🙂
      All the best, and very happy holiday!
