Ingredients for Mango with Sticky Rice

Coconut, mango and sticky rice recipe can be made healthy, with just a few ingredient swaps.

Low Calorie Tips for Making Thai Sticky Rice Recipes:

  • Canned unsweetened light coconut milk… Instead of using full fat, sugar added coconut milk, use light and unsweetened coconut milk. It won’t change the flavor (because of what we use in the next point) and it won’t change the consistency. But it will save you 100’s of calories and lots of fat.
  • Zero calorie all-natural sweetener… We have found a “sugar based” all-natural zero calorie sweetener that is great in recipes like this sweet and sticky rice with mango. Swap out the sugar for this sweetener and save lots of calories and sugar.
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes… Unsweetened coconut is much lower in calories and sugar, and if you love the flavor of coconut, this is much more traditional. A Special Low Calorie Tip: If you can only eat sweetened coconut flakes because you can’t stand unsweetened. You do have the option to omit coconut flakes all together. The coconut milk will give this dessert the flavor it needs, and many recipes for sticky rice don’t even call for flaked coconut.
