    Recipe Tips

Creamy Coconut Rice

Treat yourself to our take on a traditional Southeast Asian dessert, ready in less than 30 minutes. Explore new flavors and tastes without having to spend hours in the kitchen. Our Success® Boil-in-Bag Jasmine Rice makes this Thai dish easier without the hassle of having to worry about a ton of clean-up afterward!

If you’ve never cooked with coconut milk before, we suggest using the canned variety that can be found in the international section of your grocery store. It has a naturally sweet flavor but the sugar in this recipe will help to sweeten it up even more. Pick up a second can and you’ll be ready to try out our Frozen Coconut Rice Pudding Ice Cream whenever the craving strikes!

We also use cornstarch in this recipe as it helps to thicken the coconut milk sauce and make it more rich and creamy.

Mangoes 101

If you’re not sure how to pick a ripe mango, first look at its color to see if it’s mostly green or green and red. Many mangos turn red as they ripen so this is a good first step in choosing a ripe mango.

Try to lightly squeeze the mango to see if it feels hard or slightly soft. Ideally, you want one that is slightly soft. Try to smell the mango, near its stem. When ripe, mangoes give off a pleasant, fruity aroma.

If you can’t find any ripe, fresh mangoes or want a quicker version of this recipe, you can use frozen mango.
