Mealthy Tip

Be sure to use ripe bananas for maximum flavor. Remember that the riper the banana, the sweeter the flavor. White sticky rice is a fine substitute for the black rice, but black sticky rice turns a beautiful deep purple when cooked.

I made with white sticky rice. Weird, but good! Great texture. Kinda like rice pudding... kinda.

I love getting mango sticky rice when we go eat out at thai restaurnts, and I was really excited to make this, because it looks classy and elegant. I personally liked it, but my wife called it "a crime against dessert". I think it wasn't sweet enough for her. I guess there's no pleasing some people.

This just didn't taste too great. It wasn't sweet enough as a desert, and wasn't savory for a side or an entree. It wasn't horrible or horribly offputting so it isn't a 2 or 1 star recipe in my book. But it kind of was meh. I'd add some brown sugar and would use butter instead of coconut oil next time, but there likely won't be a next time for this recipe in my kitchen.

I really liked the sauce and the bananas 🍌 The sticky black rice part of the dish tasted just like black rice tastes. There was no sweetness in it, nor could you taste the coconut. If I were to create this recipe I'd add organic maple syrup to the rice part and use a dab of butter to caramelize the bananas quicker. With just coconut oil in the pan the bananas get a bit mushy before the caramelization happens.

My favorite part of this dish was the coconut sauce and banana slices. It was my first time making sticky rice, and my wife and family loved it. We will be making this again.
