    This is a great tasting and easy way to use lychees or longans in a dessert. Be sure to use Thai glutinous rice. Other rice will not work.

    1. Wash the rice twice and place in a pot. Add the water, jasmine extract and cook over medium heat until the rice is tender. The rice will appear moist still, not to worry.
    2. Add the sugar and cook until dissolved. Add the lychees or longans and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat.
    3. Separately, heat the coconut cream and salt together. Do not boil. Remove from the heat.
    4. To serve, place the rice and fruit in individual bowls and top with a tablespoon or two of the coconut cream. Enjoy!
