Mango and Sweet Sticky Rice
This is my favorite dessert!! Ok, one of my favorite desserts because I mean there's cake and ice cream haha. I love ordering this dessert when I'm at my favorite thai place, it's light and sweet and very tasty. The recipe turned out well; I did overcook the rice slightly but it was still all good. You will need to use sushi rice for this recipe since it is sticky so head out and get that whenever you can. Grab some canned coconut milk and maple syrup as well and you are set! Oh, and of course, a few mangos because who can eat just one. You will only need to slice about half the mango but why not eat the rest??
So, without further delay, here is the recipe and preparation:
1 cup of uncooked sushi rice
1/2 cup of pure maple syrup
1 mango, slice
1 can of light or full fat coconut milk
Sesame seeds (optional)
Cook your sushi rice according to the package and set aside. Don't overcook it like I did but even if you do, this recipe is still awesome :) Combine the can of coconut milk and maple syrup in a small saucepan and heat on low, mixing well. While the milk and syrup are heating up, slice the mango into long pieces.
Spoon the rice onto a plate and pour the coconut milk and maple syrup mixture on top slowly. Put the slices of mango on top of the rice and milk and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top of the mango (I didn't have any, this is an optional step). Serve and enjoy!
Notes: if you need a bigger sweet fix, add more maple syrup to the milk or pour syrup over the rice after serving. Taste the coconut milk while it's heating up and make sure it's sweet enough to your liking. You won't need to use all the coconut milk/maple syrup mixture for the recipe so just refrigerate what you don't use. Buy BPA-free canned coconut milk.
