If you know anything about me, you know I have a major sweet tooth. Baking sweet confections of goodness and eating them are my top two favorite things to do in the kitchen.
This Sweet Honey Coconut Rice with Fresh Mango was a fun recipe to create and I have no guilt eating it right before bed. 😉
A week or so ago I had a hankering for something sweet. I had recently bought a bunch of mangos (3/$1… how could I resist?) and they needed to me used. Why not make sticky rice and mangos? That’s where it began.
When I am able to make a dish a little healthier without losing flavor, I go for it. I love switching out sugar for raw honey. Partly because I have about 40 lbs of raw honey in my storage room and partly because it’s easier for our bodies to process than white sugar. For this dessert, I went super clean with the ingredients. Jasmine rice, raw honey, water, a pinch of salt (optional), canned coconut milk, and fresh mango. That’s it! No granulated sugar. No corn syrup. Just simple raw honey to sweeten this dessert. It turned out fabulous!
The coconut milk is so creamy and the raw honey gives it a hint of sweetness. It’s not over the top but just enough to leave me satisfied. Add delicious jasmine rice and sweet mango slices, that’s my kind of guilt-free pleasure. It’s comfort food. 🙂
I made mine in an Instant Pot because I’m impatient sometimes when it comes to anything sweet. I added the water, rice, part of the coconut milk, honey and a pinch of salt into my Instant Pot. As the rice cooked, I sliced the mangos and made the sweet honey coconut sauce that would go on top of the rice. Once the rice was complete, I fluffed it, dished onto plates. I added a healthy portion of fresh mango slices and drizzle of sweet honey coconut sauce. Yum!
The sweet yet tangy mango with the creamy honey coconut sauce and chewy rice. AWWWEEEE! It’s scrumptious! You won’t even realize it’s a healthy alternative. This really is such a light, fresh way to give in to your sweet tooth without setting you back or making you feel guilty. I love that about this dish. You can get the full printable recipe here. I hope you love it as much as we do.
