Healthy Desserts – Sticky Rice with Mango

Healthy desserts? Get out of here… That is an oxymoron.

You have a point. However, sweet creamy desserts are something we all crave. No matter how strong your willpower is eventually, we all cave in. That is unless you are an android. (call me if you are, I would love to meet ya)

This 4 ingredient, gluten-free dessert is one of my favorite healthy desserts. The creamy coconut with the warm rice is so satisfying. Also, the sweet and sour of the fresh chilled mango adds a whole new dimension to this dish.

Try this easy gluten free dessert this summer when mangoes are plenty and sweet.
