Nobody does dessert quite like Thailand! Their unique take on treats is just the right mix of sweet, rich, and wholesomely delicious. If you haven’t had Thai desserts before, now is the time to give them a try!

With so many different types and flavors to choose from, it can be a bit overwhelming to dive in on your own. Luckily, you won’t have to. We’ve done the heavy lifting for you and selected a few Thai dessert recipes that are perfect for your first try. Read on to see what yummy treats we have in store for you!

1.) Mango Sticky Rice Dishes Make Fine Thai Desserts

Do you like mangoes? Do you enjoy rice? When you combine them together, you get a taste you won’t soon forget!

Mangos make for a subtly sweet fruit, which is perfect for people who aren’t looking for a super sugary meal. The sticky rice adds a nice touch of contrasting flavor that enhances the dish’s overall sweet taste. Even though it’s considered one of the more simple Thai dessert recipes, its simplicity, and natural taste have led to it becoming quite a popular dish that’s worth trying.

2.) Coconut Ice Cream: Not Your Normal Cream

Ice cream has evolved over the years to have a ton of different flavors, but there is always room for another surprise. Thai ice cream gives you that surprise in the form of ice cream with coconuts!

Coconut ice cream is all the rage in Thailand, and for good reason. Thais like their foods made with natural ingredients, so they use a healthy dose of coconut for a fun texture and amazing taste. It’s a dessert that’s good tasting and good for you!

3.) Black Sticky Rice Pudding: Different Name, Great Taste

If you haven’t noticed already, Thais really love their sticky rice. It can be used in almost any dish, and that includes black sticky rice pudding!

Black sticky rice pudding has a texture similar to that of tapioca pudding and is equally as tasty. Try it by itself, or better yet, add a bit of the signature Thai coconut milk for an extra spin on the flavor!
