Recipe: Banana or Pineapple Sticky Rice


A Gluten-free, Dairy-free Whole Food Recipe 

We all need a little comfort food every now and then. So here’s a dessert that’s a satisfying alternative from the usual high-sugar confections — not only because it is mildly sweet, but it also contains healthy fat from coconut milk.


1 1/2 cups sushi rice
3 cups water
2 TBS raw agave nectar
1 TBS of vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
2 cans of organic coconut milk
Chunks of banana or pineapple

1. Combine rice and water. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer and cover with a lid. Rice is done when all of the water is absorbed. This rice takes less time to cook. Check it after 20 minutes.

2. Let rice cool to room temperature and then add the coconut milk, a pinch of salt, agave nectar and vanilla extract. Adjust amounts to taste. Makes 8 generous servings.
