We all know that too common feeling of not knowing what you’re in the mood for. Savory might be the way to go, but a sweet snack will satisfy your taste buds. Well, what if we told you that you could have the best of both worlds, guilt free?
Full of iron, vitamin E, and antioxidants, black rice is a nutritional powerhouse. It also happens to be super delicious. Not to mention, it’s got about nine grams of protein in every serving. Here, I simmer it slowly in water and coconut milk, and top it with ripe mango. It plays to both sides—a little sweet, a little salty. In the right crowd, I’d even get away with serving it for dessert. Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow gave us a treat to die for, something so yummy we’re pinning this recipe to our fridge (we bet we’re going to make it at least once a week from now on).

How To Make Black Rice Pudding With Coconut Milk & Mango:
- ½ cup black rice
- 2 cups of water
- ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons full-fat coconut milk
- 1 date, pitted and diced
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ mango, peeled and sliced
- In a small saucepan, combine the rice, water, cup of the coconut milk, the date, and the salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to maintain a simmer, cover, and cook for 45 minutes, stirring halfway through to make sure the rice is not sticking.
- Divide the rice pudding between two bowls and pour 1 tablespoon of the coconut milk over each. Top with the mango and serve.
