Mango Dessert Thai Vegan Plant Based Recipe

Thai Mango Dessert is a heavenly, super sweet, easy to make vegan treat. It’s perfect for mango season. I swear I could eat nothing but juicy, ripe mangoes for the rest of my days and never want anything else … except maybe chocolate.

This is a pic of the original we had at a Thai restaurant near Lake Michigan. It was so good I couldn’t wait to make it at home. I left out the food coloring, though. It turned out just as beautifully and delicious.

This takes just a few minutes to put together once the rice is cooked. I used some left over rice from making sushi the day before.

Use about a half cup of cooked sushi or other short grain rice and pat it into a cake that will fit and look nice on your dish.

In a saucepan over medium heat, whisk together a cup of coconut milk and 3 tablespoons sugar. Add just a pinch of salt, as well. Heat, stirring often, until almost boiling.

Use lite canned coconut milk, or just regular every day coconut milk. I used coconut sugar, which was nice, but any kind of sugar will do.
