This dessert is healthy to eat and easy to prepare, while still looking rather impressive. The combination of coconut cream, black rice and mango is a popular South East Asian influence. You can use black or white rice, or perhaps a combination of both. The beauty of this dish is that you can prepare it ahead of time and make the layers more elaborate if you prefer.
