As a customer favorite, your Lexington Thai restaurant, White Coconut Thai, knows what you crave. For some it is the savory flavors of authentic Thai cuisine, but for others, it’s the last course that takes the cake (no pun intended). Yes, we’re talking about dessert. Either way, it is our job to make sure those cravings are met!
Here, the White Coconut family is taking a look at a few Thai desserts that not only satisfy but are easy to make!
Mango and Sticky Rice
Although a seasonal option at White Coconut Thai Restaurant, mango and sticky rice is a traditional street food offering that hits the spot! The combination of fresh mango, coconut milk, and sticky rice topped with a salted coconut sauce and sesame seeds is the perfect combination of diverse flavors.
While high quality frozen mango can be substituted for fresh, this dessert is best served at the peak of mango season during the early spring.
Coconut Ice Cream
Another traditional offering in Thailand that is hard to find elsewhere is coconut ice cream. No, we are not talking about a vanilla alternative with additives and other ingredients. We are talking about old fashioned coconut ice cream made from pure coconut water, limited ingredient coconut milk, and quality palm sugar. Simple, easy to make, and always delicious.
For a truly authentic experience, forget the bowl or cone. Thai ice cream is served in a fresh, fluffy bun!
Fried Banana with Honey
Simple and quick to make anywhere, bite-sized Thai style fried bananas are a perfect way to cure your sweet craving! Sliced and drizzled with fresh local honey, this is a perfect on the go treat as well! However, if you have time to sit and enjoy, try topping your fried bananas with coconut or green tea ice cream! We promise you’ll be glad you did!
Rice flour and coconut batter make this dessert full of unexpected, yet perfectly satisfying flavor!
