I used orzo pasta (I was making some anyway for another dish--I just threw in extra especially for this dessert) and Truvia in place of the white sugar (I googled the amount and I got eight packets to equal 1/3 of a cup). I chilled my Kitchen Aid mixer and beater attachment for an hour or so before whipping the cream. As I was whipping the cream, I gradually added one packet at a time until I'd added them all. This was a wonderful dessert--the kids and I thought it was incredible. I was so tickled that I pulled it off using orzo and Truvia! I can't get over how easy it was. I think I might take one of the other reviewer's suggestions and try using chopped mandarin oranges and maybe a little unsweetened coconut in this dessert next time.


I had leftover rice and whipping cream so this fit the bill. Made exactly as written. Easy to make and quite tasty!


Very easy to make & delightfully light!
