The first word that many people think of when they think of Asian cuisines in general, and Thai in particular, is spicy. However, sweet would be a very accurate word to describe it, because Thais love sweet.

And now that we have the fruits controlled, let's see what sweets and desserts, with or without fruit, you can eat when you go to Thailand.

  1. Mango sticky rice

The sticky rice mango is the hypercaloric evolution of the normal mango. It is also my favorite dessert of all the desserts included in this article (although the choice is difficult, eh? Because in this article there are many delicious things that I like).

The sticky rice Mango, which literally means mango with sticky rice, is a dessert to take sitting and spoon. It has mango (obviously), sticky rice (the sticky rice ), and coconut milk on top (which can be more or less soupy, it depends on how they serve it. Coconut milk is what makes rice sticky ). I already told you that it drives me crazy and, although it has many more calories than a normal mango, you cannot leave Thailand without trying it. Seriously, don't leave without trying it!

  1. Banana in coconut milk

The banana in coconut milk, in English banana in coconut milk, is as simple as banana chips floating in a bowl of the sweetest coconut milk you can imagine.

Sometimes the simple things taste best. If you like mango sticky rice, surely you like banana in coconut milk even if it does not come with rice. If you don't like sweets, you won't like this dessert.

  1. Fried banana

As its name suggests, the fried banana is a banana that is fried (in case the normal banana does not have enough calories, you know ...). Its appearance is toasted and it is taken in a kind of thin slices, roll to nibble. Once you start with it, it is difficult to stop, and it is ideal to take it around for a snack or snack. It seems silly, but the fried banana is delicious!

  1. Cambucha 

The kombucha is a kind of sugar string that is wrapped in a pancake-like roll. They taste similar to fairground cotton, but their texture is more consistent. It is like eating sweet grass and it is prepared as you see in the photo below.

I had never heard of this sweet before going to Thailand, it was taught to me by a Thai friend the day we spent at the floating market in Pattaya. Note that we did not buy it in the floating market in Pattaya, but in some stalls that were next to the road near the market. I was very amused. I found it to be a very curious Thai sweet, although not very healthy because it was all sugar.

  1. Sakoo piek 

At first glance, the saloon piek looks like yogurt or pudding with seeds inside. But is not. It is coconut milk (of course!), More or less thick, in which taro balls float. Taro is a tuber widely used both in Asia - from where it seems to originate - and in Oceania and also in Hawaii. Its scientific name in case you want to investigate more is schoolhouse colocasia.

Of all the desserts on the list, sake piek is probably my 'least favorite dessert in Thailand'. But hey, you have to try it. You love the same thing.

  1. Nutillana 

I think, although I wouldn't put my hand on the fire for it, that nutillana (which is what you see in the photo that follows) is a snack made from banana slices cut very thin with condensed milk on top. They remind me of Spanish apricots, I don't know,  maybe they are flour dough covered in condensed milk. Who cares? They are beautiful.

  1. Canutien

By canutien I mean a whitish and greasy dough, unappetizing at first, whose main ingredient is coconut milk. It may or may not carry stumbling blocks of fruit or things. You will not see it with the naked eye, it is that which is wrapped in green leaves in the markets. It's another one of those weird and curious things that my Thai friend taught me.
