This special dessert recipe is beautiful to serve, plus easy to make and healthy too! It starts with slices of fresh star fruit (instructions on how to buy and prepare star fruit are included). While star fruit can be eaten fresh, in this recipe the fruit is lightly cooked and then given a tropical-tasting mango-orange sauce. Topped with a drizzle of coconut milk, this light and delicious dessert is beautiful to serve and lovely to eat.
Fried bananas are a popular dessert and snack food in Thailand and throughout Southeast-Asia. The dish is more often known as 'Goreng Pisang' in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, and surrounding countries. It's difficult to make fried bananas as good as those sold by street food vendors in Thailand and elsewhere - that said, I've been working on this recipe for awhile now, and think it's pretty good. Even my picky step-kids loved them. So if you like fried bananas, be sure to give this recipe a go!

Try this fantastically easy recipe for Mango Sorbet! Quick and simple to make, and there's no stove involved. You'll need only a blender or food processor.

This gourmet dessert is very tropical tasting, yet also light and healthy, which makes it an excellent dessert to serve after a heavy barbecue. Grilled Pineapple is naturally sweet and tasty, but add my Thai flavorings and dipping sauce, and you have an incredible taste sensation! Unlike most recipes for grilled pineapple, this one is made into what I call "pineapple pops", so it's easy to eat (like eating a Popsicle!). Makes a beautiful dessert to serve, and it's truly fanastic to eat!
This is an easy recipe for Coconut Banana Custard that is quickly whipped up with a blender, mixer, or food processor. The "flowering" effect comes with using banana leaves (if you don't have any, the dessert is also good plain). In Thailand, this dessert would be steamed, but I find baking it in the oven is just as good and less messy. A terrific way to use leftover bananas, and you can put this dessert together in less than 10 minutes.
