Thai Mango Sticky Rice, White Girl Style

Thai mango sticky rice is incredible. After a spicy Thai meal full of garlic, basil, ginger, and curry, the creamy coconut flavor of the rice combined with a sweet juicy mango tastes so subtle and so perfect. Unfortunately, it is supposed to be a pain in the butt to make.

One day, I was feeling a bit adventurous, so I decided to give it a whirl using only the ingredients found in my cupboard. This is normally a recipe for disaster (pun intended), but this time it worked! By "worked," I mean that this Caucasian woman feels like the end result is close enough to what Thai restaurants serve. The real test will come when I serve it to my Thai mother-in-law.

Here is my simple, three step, four ingredient recipe:


  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • a few tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk
  • a juicy, juicy mango cut up


  1. Cook the rice.
  2. Just before the rice is done, gently stir in the coconut and sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Serve with mangoes. Sprinkle it with sesame seeds if you're really going for the Thai restaurant look.

Now, if I can only figure out an easy way to make a yummy Thai meal to eat before it...
