Thailand is an interesting destination especially for food fanatics like myself, what’s even more sublime is their desserts, which are commonly sweet hence the Thai name khanom which means a sweet snack. Below is a compiled list of 6 delicious treats you should try once you land in Bangkok Thailand.

This is a simple yet a delicious dessert made from ripe bananas and coconut milk. The bananas are cut into bite-sized thin pieces and mixed with the coconut milk in a bowl. To add more flavor cinnamon powder can be sprinkled on top of the dessert.
2. Thai bananas in sticky rice
If you are a vegetarian, this dessert is a must to try. Though it’s regarded as a dessert, it can also be served as a main dish. A half piece of banana is rolled and covered with Thai sticky rice, and if you prefer, it can be topped with some black beans.

Thai roti is a traditional pancake it resembles a crepe though and it’s a widely accepted dessert in Bangkok, Thailand. It can be filled with a vast of options depending on your taste, including raisings, banana or coconut. It can also be topped with sweetened condensed milk or sugar.
4. Coconut ice cream
If you are anything like me, then an ice cream should be your favorite and what beats an ice cream full of coconut flavor? Though not as thick as the common ice creams in the stores and shops, this ice cream is delicious and a lot healthier.

As simple as the name suggests, this dessert is a steamed pumpkin with custard filled in it. It can be served as a main course as well.
