This is one popular merienda treat combination here in the Philippines -- mango and suman sa lihia. Ironically, I am yet to find any suman sa lihia here in Bohol.
Suman is a popular Filipino delicacy made of sticky rice wrapped in banana or coconut leaves. It is served with a sweet sauce made from coconut milk.
However, with some people, instead of the sweet coconut milk, they opt for ripe mango with their suman. That is because the mango is generally sweet and combined with suman, adds interesting texture to tha palate. Indeed, a wonderful merienda treat to be eaten with great relish!
