Beat the heat and indulge in these frozen remakes of the classic Thai mango sticky rice dessert! Made with actual rice grains,the recipe for this creamy sweet goodness is really straightforward, doesn’t take long to make and is friendly on the figure too. What a sweet deal! (Literally)
To achieve those sweet flavours, this guilt-free dessert takes advantage of the natural sugars in white rice. Unlike conventional white rice, Kinmemai Better White Rice has more fibre, vitamins and immune system boosting nutrients. Moist, fluffy and slightly buttery, each grain of rice is carefully checked for their taste and texture before they go up on the shelves. With their advanced polishing techniques, these grains of rice are rinse-free and can be cooked straight away – meaning more time to make more popsicles!
Adding some lime zest to the heated mixture of rice and milk helps to lighten up the buttery flavours. Be sure to let the mixture cool or it will be too watery to fold in the mango cubes. Once done, quickly pop them into the freezer and await your cold treat!
Juicy bits of mango mixed with coconut milk and chewy grains of rice, this interesting twist to the traditional mango sticky rice dessert is delightfully refreshing and serves as a healthy summer treat for all ages to enjoy!

Sourced directly from New Zealand, Pure South Lambs are fed with grass, lowering fat content and enriching their meat with iron, zinc and vitamin A. With outdoor grazing methods, in the pristine fields of New Zealand, Pure South Lamb racks are more succulent and tender than their grain-fed counterparts. Very often lamb chops are served with herbs and garlic, so in our recipe we added an Asian touch to the usual herbal flavours.
Brown, sweet and savory. Asians very own version of barbecue sauce, Hoisin sauce, delivers a sweet dark flavour to the lamb chops. Whisk together Hoisin sauce and the condiments before slathering all the flavour boosting marinade over the entire surface of the lamb rack. The best way to get melty roasted lamb meat? Make sure to cover the dish tightly with foil so those precious juices don’t evaporate. For a much richer, meltingly tender lamb meat, do a second round of slathering. Get more of that marinade onto each lamb chop and roast in the oven again.
With minimal effort needed and just a little bit of patience, just leave it to the oven to do the roasting for you and this hearty midweek dinner is guaranteed to please!
