Plant-based sticky Thai black rice pudding

Black sticky rice (or black glutinous rice) is a naturally sweet, dark rice (dark purple more than black) that has both fiber and loads of antioxidants - which only makes this rice pudding extra enjoyable to eat. It's also made from plant-based ingredients and is low in fat, win win! This dish can be eaten hot or cold and has a beautiful, chewy texture.
