Mangoes are my son's favorite fruit, so I was ecstatic to incorporate them into a healthy dessert. You can also use ripe bananas instead of mango, almond extract instead of vanilla or regular milk in place of soy. —Melissa McCabe, Victor, New York

  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain brown rice
  • 1 medium ripe mango
  • 1 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Chopped peeled mango, optional


  1. In a large heavy saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil; stir in rice. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 35-40 minutes or until water is absorbed and rice is tender.
  2. Meanwhile, peel, seed and slice mango. Mash mango with a potato masher or fork.
  3. Stir milk, sugar, cinnamon and mashed mango into rice. Cook, uncovered, on low 10-15 minutes longer or until liquid is almost absorbed, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Serve warm or cold, with chopped mango if desired.
