With it being Mother’s Day in the UK this Sunday, I wanted to choose a sweet and tasty dessert that both children and adults would love! My Mango Sticky Rice. This South East Asian dessert is one of my all time favourites. When entertaining I would normally balance the whole meal - so if the appetisers and mains are light, I might finish with a slightly richer dessert like this one. Or if my mains are richer with stronger spiced dishes, then I tend to serve a fruit-heavy based dessert for a refreshing finish. OK, so this is not a dessert for those looking to loose weight or be healthy. However, you can make some small changes to at least cut some of the fat and sugar. Try using reduced fat coconut milk and make sure the brown sugar is organic or you can try substituting with date or coconut sugar which carry the same full flavour. You can feel good about eating lots of mango which contains vitamin A and C, and 25 different kinds of carotenoids, not to mention them being high in fibre! Seems we can feel virtuous after all - ha ha! Enjoy your weekend! Love, Ching x
