Mango Sticky Rice


We went out with some friends to a Thai restaurant recently and for dessert we had mango sticky rice.  I thought I was in heaven – it was SO good.  I’m pretty sure it was also drowning in sugar because it was very sweet.  I wanted to try making it at home as a simple low-sugar version.  So this is what I came up with:

It was creamy, sweet and delicious   My 2 year old ate it for a snack and for breakfast this morning.  Success.

  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 2 – 3 tbsp sugar turbinado, cane, brown,
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • Peel and chop the mangoes.
  • If you want to serve individually, place a round mound of rice on a plate and top with chopped mango.
  • Stir the remaining sweetened coconut milk thoroughly, transfer to a small serving bowl and pass it separately, with a spoon, so people can spoon on extra.
