Editorial Notes

The ingredient tips, suggestions, variations, facts, questions and answers below are not edits to the original author's recipe. They are not meant to imply any change would improve the recipe.

  • When selecting the mango, look for one that is ripe and fragrant.
  • For best results, use short grain or arborio rice, not long grain rice.

  • Substitute almond milk for coconut milk: Almond milk is a great substitute for coconut milk, as it is dairy-free and has a mild flavor that won't overpower the other ingredients. It also has a creamy texture that will give the popsicles a nice texture.
  • Substitute peaches for mangoes: Peaches are a great substitute for mangoes, as they are a bit sweeter and have a softer texture. This will help to create a smoother and more flavorful popsicle.

Tropical Fruit Sticky Rice Popsicles Replace the mango with a combination of pineapple, papaya, and banana. Peel, cube, and add the fruit to the pot before freezing the popsicles.

Thai Coconut Soup - This creamy and flavorful soup pairs perfectly with the Coconut Mango Sticky Rice Popsicles and is a great way to cool down after a hot summer day. It is easy to make and can be made in advance and reheated.

Thai Papaya Salad - This refreshing salad is the perfect accompaniment to the Thai Coconut Soup. It is made with shredded papaya, tomatoes, peanuts, and a spicy dressing and is packed with flavor. The crunchy texture of the peanuts and the sweetness of the papaya make it a great contrast to the creamy soup.


Q: How long should I freeze the popsicles?

Super good! These were easy to make and oh-so-tasty! Just like sticky rice! I didn't add the full amount of water because I wanted them creamier - and I'm glad I did that! I love how the mango distributed among the rice, so you get mango and rice in every bite! We'll be making these again! Thanks for sharing a lovely summer treat!
