Thai Mango Sticky Rice

Thai Mango Sticky Rice is seriously one of the most delicious desserts out there. If you haven’t tried it before, it consists of sweet glutinous rice (which just means sticky rice and actually contains no gluten at all!) which is flavoured with creamy coconut cream and served with fresh sweet mangoes. Served with a little extra salted coconut cream and crunchy toasted mung beans for some texture. It also just happens to always be vegan, gluten-free!
