Healthy Rice Cake Toppings Ideas

 


Rice Cake is a Great Alternative to reduce your daily Bread intake! There are Endless Toppings out there that you can pair with a Rice Cake to make a Tasty, Easy and Healthy Snack or Breakfast!

Chips, Fries, Bread, Cookies, Peanut Butter-Filled Pretzels, M&Ms, Reese’s peanut butter cups, Ice cream, …

You name it! Then after mindless eating I’d feel guilt and shame… 

All these “snacks” have couple of things in common; High Calories, Fat, Saturated Fat, Carbs and Sugar!

And worst of all, they are SO ADDICTIVE that it’s extremely hard to control the suggested “serving size” once you start eating!

After I started my weight loss journey, I started learning how to eat my favorite food with making couple of swaps!

Since then, I’ve limited my Bread Consumption to one or two pieces of Multigrain toast a day. Whenever I crave for more bread, I replace it with one or two Rice Cakes!

Quaker Rice Cakes vary from 30 to 60 calories each depending on their flavor.

Some of the flavors are; White Cheddar, Lightly Salted, Chocolate, Caramel, Butter Popcorn, Apple Cinnamon, Salt Free , Tomato & Basil Rice Cakes.

Besides Plain Rice Cakes, my favorite flavored Rice Cakes are Caramel, White Cheddar and Butter Popcorn!


Top 8 Rice Cake Toppings in my opinion are:

GREEK YOGURT + DARK CHOCOLATE



Greek Yogurt is one of the greatest and healthiest snacks that you can have at any time of the day!

Dark Chocolate is also a very healthy snack, but remember that portion size matters! Reward yourself with 1 piece of Dark Chocolate daily.

I make this Rice Cake with layers of Plain Greek yogurt, Dark Chocolate and Shredded Coconut. These combinations go so well together…


GREEK YOGURT + BLUEBERRIES


Greek yogurt is low in calories, and high in protein and Calcium. Blueberries are sweet in nature and good source of vitamins and Fiber. They also add flavor to your rice cake.

To get more flavor you can pair these toppings with a sweet flavored Rice Cake like Caramel or Chocolate. 


CREAM CHEESE + PEAR


For this Rice Cake, I use “1/3 less fat than regular cream cheese”, and I swear it’s as creamy and delicious as a regular cream cheese!

I pair cream cheese with Pear because it’s highly nutritious, packed with fiber and goes well with cream cheese!

Besides, the creaminess and sweetness of cream cheese and pear takes Rice Cake to another level!


PEANUT BUTTER + JAM


This is for Peanut Butter lovers like myself! Remember I mentioned about my carvings for Peanut-Butter Filled Pretzels? Well, this snack is the greatest alternative to satisfy my cravings for peanut Butter!

Pair Peanut Butter and Jam with a Plain Rice or Caramel Rice Cake to satisfy your sweet tooth!


ALMOND BUTTER + BANANA 


Another healthy snack for Almond Butter lovers! You can never go wrong with adding Banana to your Almond Butter!

Banana is rich in potassium and fiber, and it’s full of nutrients. I top this snack with some shredded almonds for more flavor and nutrition!



FETA CHEESE + AVOCADO + CHERRY TOMATOES + BASIL


Usually I use a plain Rice Cake for these toppings. If I use a Tomato and Basil flavored Rice Cake, I only add Feta Cheese and Avocado because it’s already full of flavors!

This Rice Cake is super tasty , and packed with protein and vitamins.


AVOCADO + BOILED EGG 


This is not only a great snack but also a great breakfast! It’s packed with protein, it’s rich in flavor, and it’ll keep you full for a longer time! I boil my egg for 6 to 7 minutes so it’s Medium.

Pair it with a Salt Free or Butter Popcorn Rice Cake; add a pinch of sea salt and black pepper!


AVOCADO + PISTACHIO


Are you craving for a sweet snack and Avocado at the same time? If so, this is the right snack for you then! This Rice Cake is heavenly delicious…

I top my Mashed Avocado Rice Cake with crushed pistachios and a few pecans and a drizzle of honey!

To get the ultimate flavor, I pair these ingredients with a Plain or Butter Popcorn Rice Cake ! If you like a sweeter snack, pair these ingredients with a Caramel Rice Cake instead.
