I'm surprised by the earlier reviews. Why would they expect a "sweet" dessert with only 3 tablespoons of sugar and 1 can of lite coconut milk? If there had been 3/4 CUP of sugar and a can of the sweetened cream of coconut milk (like "Coco Lopez") I would understand that thoughtwave... I have this earmarked to make in a few weeks.
Grilled Pineapple with Coconut Black Sticky Rice
From EatingWell: August/September 2006
A take on the classic Southeast Asian dessert of fresh mango with coconut white sticky rice, this version has grilled pineapple served over cardamom-infused coconut black sticky rice. The consistency should be that of a loose rice pudding, though black sticky rice is always chewy. For an equally delicious dessert, use grilled banana or mango instead of pineapple.

This was just ok. I prepared as described and was excited to try. However the end result was disappointing. It simply tastes like sweetened rice. If you're looking for a "rice pudding" like dish, keep looking... :-(
I made this as directed. The rice cooked perfectly. But the coconut flavor was too light and it was not sweet at all.
