Rice dessert with seasonal fruit and caramelized cashews
How to prepare a dessert from rice? It is very easy. Boil sticky rice in coconut milk with coconut sugar. When we get the consistency of the pudding, we cool it down and cool it in the fridge. After cooling, the rice mass becomes thick enough that we can roll balls from it. We coat these sweet rice balls in coconut flakes and serve with fruit, fruit sauce and caramelized nuts.
It is a very tasty and healthy dessert to which we can add seasonal or frozen fruit. Instead of cashews, we can caramelize other, favorite nuts or even pumpkin or sunflower seeds.
I recommend sushi rice for dessert, it is sticky and makes balls easily sticky. Good sushi rice, coconut milk, coconut sugar, coconut shrims can be bought in larger stores or online, e.g. at Cuisines of the world < / p>
250 g sushi rice
1 liter of coconut milk
250 ml of water
50 g coconut sugar
10 g coconut flour
500 g of fruit (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, currants, strawberries) fresh or frozen
1 tablespoon of coconut sugar
80 - 100 ml of orange juice (best freshly squeezed)
CHIPS AND CASE NUTS
100 g of coconut shrims
50 g of sugar
100 g cashews
Rinse the rice on a sieve, generously under running water. In a saucepan, boil water with sugar, add coconut milk and rice, and mix. Cook over low heat for about 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. When the rice is quite thick, add coconut flour, mix it and take it off the heat. Let it cool without the lid, then cool it in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
In the meantime, we clean the fruit. Mix a large handful of selected fruits (in my case, blackberries) and, if we do not like seeds, we rub them through a sieve. Mix it with sugar and orange juice.
Roast coconut in a dry and hot frying pan until it is slightly golden brown, then pour it into a bowl. Roast cashews in the same pan and put them into a separate bowl. Dissolve 50 g of sugar in a frying pan, add roasted cashews, mix and spread on baking paper. When they cool down, we can chop them coarsely.
With wet hands, form balls from the chilled rice pudding and coat them in coconut shavings. Pour a portion of fruit sauce onto a plate, place a few rice balls, add fruit and decorate with caramelized nuts. It's delicious!
