Let’s talk ingredients, if you’ve never cooked with coconut milk, we suggest using the canned variety that can be found in the international section of your grocery store. It has a natural sweet flavor but the sugar will help to sweeten it up even more! Why not pick up a second can or two to keep on hand to try out this frozen Coconut Rice Pudding Ice Cream.
Why add cornstarch? The cornstarch will help to thicken your coconut milk sauce to make it more rich and creamy and essentially add to the recipe deliciousness.
Tips for finding a ripe mango: If you’re not sure how to pick a mango that’s just right, first observe the color and see if it is mostly green or green and red. Many ripe mangos turn red as they ripen but this is not always a good detector.
Try to lightly squeeze it to see if it feels hard or slightly soft-you’ll want one that is slightly squishy. You can also smell near the stem as they give off a pleasant fruity aroma when ripe.
If you can’t find any fresh or want a quicker version of this recipe, find them in the frozen fruit section.
