Hello Tuesday! It’s sweltering out there and we all need something to cool down. I have something sweet and chilly to share, my quick and simple Mango Pudding. It’ll only take a few minutes to make and it doesn’t involve a ton of ingredients.
Mango is my most favorite fruit in the whole wide world and there’s a lot of ways you can make something out of a mango. One of them is Mango Pudding which is extremely popular in Asia and is guaranteed to be a crowd favorite everywhere. It’s a great dessert for the summer and even throughout the whole four seasons. It retains the bold, sweet, and delicious taste of a mango but with a gelatinous twist.
Here’s my quick and easy recipe:
1 cup Mango Puree (you can buy them in Asian food markets or even on Amazon.com)
1/8 cup Sugar (could be more if your Mango Puree is not sweetened)
1/2 cup Cream (heavy whipping cream)
2 cups Milk (either fat-free or whole milk)
1/2 cup Agar-Agar strips (If thick, cut into 1/2 inch, also available in the grocery stores, or even on Amazon.com. You can even substitute it for Agar powder, available here.)
1/2 cup Water
- Boil the milk in a saucepan, together with Sugar and Cream. Let it cool down after boiling (3-4 minutes).
- In a separate pan, melt the Agar-Agar strips with 1/2 cup Water until they dissolve completely. Then strain it to remove the undissolved particles, if any.
- Add the strained Agar-Agar to the Milk that was cooled down. Stir.
- Add the Mango Puree on the Milk with Agar-Agar mixture. Mix.
- Once blended, the entire mixture will look somewhat thick but not yet gelatinous. Pour the mixture into different cups and place it in the refrigerator for a few hours.
- Serve Chilled and Enjoy.
Notes: Once inside the refrigerator, the mixture will slowly become gelatinous and transforms into a pudding. You can add some mango strips and mint leaves on top, or whichever topping you may wanna include. If you purchased an already-sweetened Mango Puree, you may only wanna add a bit of sugar, but if it’s unsweetened, then you can adjust the sugar to taste. You can even use a fresh Mango fruit instead of a Puree. It’s all up to you.
This easy peasy Mango pudding recipe takes only a few minutes to prepare and it makes about 3-4 cups of gelatinous mango deliciousness for everybody.
Go make one now, Enjoy your Summer!
