Welcome to our brand new blog: Jenn & Jac Snack. Here you will find unique recipes, silly musings and daily snack attacks. We can’t wait to share our #snacklife adventures with you! For our first post we decided to make something that truly reflects our “culinary point of view”. We decided on, drumroll please…Fruity Sticky Rice! We used our favourite non-dairy milk, coconut milk to make this quick, easy, and yummy dessert that would be perfect to bring to a summery party or an afternoon picnic. It’s a little thicker than a rice pudding, but has that same soft and creamy texture. The vanilla bean and honey give it a warm sweetness and the mixed fruit adds a colourful tang. This recipe makes enough for two, but you can easily double or triple it for a bigger crowd.
- 2 cups of cooked sushi rice
- 1 1/2 cups canned coconut milk
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 vanilla bean pod, scraped
- Pinch of sea salt
A plethora of mixed fruit (We used fresh coconut, mango, sour cherries, strawberries and banana) How to make it: – Mix coconut milk, honey, vanilla bean seeds and sea salt together in a medium pot over medium heat. Whisk the mixture as it heats up to break apart the vanilla bean. -Once the coconut milk mixture starts to bubble add in the rice and reduce to a simmer. Keep stirring and simmer until most of the coconut milk has been absorbed/evaporated. -Chill the rice until completely cool. Top with fruit. A perfect summer dessert!
