Thai Sweet Sticky Chia with Mango

2 Apr

Ataulfo Mangoes are now in season and Whole Foods is giving one of my readers a $75 Gift Card!*

Coconut Chia with Mango. I prefer it a lot more mangoes.

Do you ever crave for Thai Sweet Sticky Rice with Mango?  Well… I do!  This is so easy and simple to prepare, I wish I had done it sooner.  I love this as a dessert and even as a breakfast pudding.

Mix together in a bowl and set aside overnight:

pinch of sea salt

1/2 cup raw local honey

1 cup chia seeds

3 cups fresh coconut milk (about 2 Thai coconuts: open and place white meat and coconut water in the high speed blender and puree)

The next day, top the pudding with mangoes and sprinkle on some sesame seeds.  If you want, you can drizzle some sauce on top (freshly made coconut milk mixed with more raw local honey).

*To join the Whole Foods Giveaway, just comment below with your fave mango recipe and we will choose the winner noon, 15th April 2014. Whole Foods will email you the $75 Gift Card! Good luck! And enjoy other ways to eat mangoes!

    This looks really good, I am having immense cravings. I also have a potentially stupid question: I know nothing about coconuts, but when I look up Thai coconuts, they look white. The only young coconuts I’ve seen available in my area are green in appearance. They have very little edible ‘meat’ (which is transparent and jelly-like) and the juice is mild in flavour. Would that be suitable to use?

      Where are you? Anyway, yes, that’s good too!! The Green is what they take off before they package the coconuts and send them off for shipment. That would absolutely be suitable!

    Interesting replacing sticky rice with chia seeds. Will need to give this a try. I do like a corn kernels, tomatoes, black beans, avocados, lime juice and mangoes with 1tsp cumin, 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, 1tsp chili powder and salt recipe. Mostly as a salsa but can be salad.

    Mango avocado salad
    6 cups arugula leaves
    1 mango, peeled and cut into long slices
    1 avocado, peeled and sliced
    ½ red onion, sliced
    1 tbs lime juice
    For the spicy orange vinaigrette
    1 tbs champagne vinegar
    4 tbs orange juice, about ½ orange
    2 tbs lime juice, about ½ lime
    4 tbs olive oil
    ½ tsp cumin
    2 tbs finely chopped cilantro
    1 red chili or hot pepper, sliced
    Salt and pepper

    Combine all the ingredients for the salad dressing in a jar, close it tight and shake until the ingredients are well mixed.
    Soak the onion slices in warm water with a dash of salt and 1 tbs lime juice for about 10 minutes.
    Rinse and drain the onions slices.
    Toss the arugula leaves with half of the vinaigrette.
    Add the avocado slices, mango slices and onion slices to the arugula mix, drizzle the remaining vinaigrette on top.

    I love love mangoes with sticky rice but I don’t like eating white rice so this is perfect for me thanks!! I don’t have a fancy high speed blender can I do this any other way? My favorite way to eat mango aside from with sticky rice or just on its own is in a spicy indian chutney

    My favorite mango recipe is super easy – it involves putting frozen mango chunks in the food processor with Greek yogurt and blending away. It makes a sorbet-type frozen treat that we all love. Yum! What a great giveaway – so fun!

    My kids love just eating mangos plain (especially if they are perfectly ripe!). We enjoy them mostly in smoothies!!

    Mango and Strawberry Salsa!!
    – SO SIMPLE just mangoes and strawberries drizzled with balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, OJ and a little lime juice!

    That does look delish! My favorite mango recipe comes from when I was living in a tropical area, and we’d pick mangoes up so juicy and sweet! and also coconut I like to saute fish and then add freshly grated coconut and slices of mango, along with a little honey and soy and coconut milk!

    I love my mango and banana smoothie. Simple yet delicious and nutritious!

    I like to make a shrimp stir fry, and first saute garlic and fresh ginger in hot grapeseed oil. Then add sliced onions, then snow peas. I also add my own mung bean sprouts. I make a sauce with cornstarch, pineapple juice, soy sauce and add that to the mix. Then I add the chopped mango and cashews. I love ripe mango!!

    • Rosie April 5, 2014 at 1:24 pm #

      woops! I add the shrimp after the snow peas (first saute the veggies, then add the shrimp before you add the sauce and the remaining ingredients). !!!

    I love to make mango salsa! The sweetest and spiciness is killer!

    What a wonderful giveaway! I am addicted to desserts so my favorite mango recipe is Mango swirl cheesecake. So easy to make, and SO DELICIOUS!

    Honestly, I love mangos raw. Mango lassis are great, too. So is mango ice cream!

  18. Christina H April 14, 2014 at 10:21 pm #

    I have to say that I often sue mangos to prepare Bobby Flay’s black bean salad with mango and mango dressing. The bean salad combines black beans, garlic, scallions, tomatoes and mango. It is then dressed with mango, lime, red onion, cilantro, cumin, olive oil and salt and pepper. Yum!
