Coconut Rice – 4 Ingredients

A wonderful sweet dessert! Serve with fresh Mangos to bring an exotic flair to top off your meal.

Note: This is NOT Thai Sticky Rice (glutinous rice).  Jasmine rice cooks up light and fluffy and will not taste or feel like sticky rice.  Sticky rice has whitish grain as opposed to opaque like jasmine rice. Try a rice cooker or double boiler to make cooking this dessert in a flash.
