Mango Pudding Recipe

I love mango pudding.  I could eat it all day.  Here is an easy recipe for some yummy mango pudding.

Ingredients

Mango Pulp - 850 ml (or use 2 regular cans of sliced mangos)
Fresh ripe mango - 1
Whipping Cream - 500 ml
Gelatin - 4 small packets
Sugar - 1 cup
Cold water to add - 2 cups
Cold water to boil - 2 cups

Instructions

  1. Remove the skin and pit from the fresh mango.  Dice up mango pieces and set aside. 
  2. If you used the sliced canned mangos, dice up the mango pieces and mash some of them.  
  3. Combine gelatine powder and sugar.
  4. Put 2 cups of cold water into a pot and add the gelatin and sugar.
  5. Bring water to a boil, stirring occasionally. Ensure that sugar and gelatin have been dissolved.  Mixture should become clear.
  6. Turn off heat.
  7. Add mango pulp and 2 cups of cold water.  Mix.
  8. Add whipping cream.  Mix.
  9. Let cool.
  10. Chill in refrigerator.
  11. Enjoy!   
Notes
  • This mango pudding is not like Jello pudding.  It's more like mango jello, but softer.  Maybe you could call this mango mousse, but you can serve this like a cake...
  • I used the sliced mangos for the pudding shown in the photo I didn't use the drained mango juice, but I think I could have added some of it without any problems. (I couldn't find the canned mango pulp at first.  I eventually found some at Superstore in the East Indian foods section.)  
  • The fresh mango makes it taste more fresh and fragrant.  You could experiment with using all fresh mangos for this recipe.  I think it would be awesome.
  • You could swap out mango and replace it with pureed strawberries instead.

Hi, just came across your blog. I love all your fish posts! Thank you for sharing. I was thinking about getting some for my birthday. I was wondering if you could answer a few questions for me? Which of your fishies lasted the longest and what kind of fish Tiggy was, I was so sad when I read that he passed such a cutie :(

P.S. That pudding looks good, I like mangoes and pudding--will try it one day! (:

Hi Jasmine,

If you want to have fish that last a long time, take the time to make the aquarium conditions really good. You can learn a lot from the staff at the aquarium shops. You will need a good filtration system, proper water treating products, a suction thing to suck the goop out, aquatic gravel and plants, etc. Oh, and don't overcrowd your tank.

The fishes that lasted the longest for me are the following:

Lemon Tetras: they can survive terrible conditions, but they are infinitely boring.

Gouramis: they can also survive bad conditions, but they kill other fishes if you put them in a small tank, including each other. Best to not have more than one, or only have a community of them in a large tank with excellent conditions so that there is no competition for space or resources.

Goldfish: if you give them the right conditions, they can grow quite big. The downside is that they eat and poop a lot so you have to change the water frequently.

I find that most goldfish last pretty long except for some fancy ones like the ones that have googly eyes that look sideways. Black Moors die fast too.

Tiggy was a goldfish. I'm not sure what kind. If you were to show a picture to the people at the aquarium I'm sure they could tell you though.

Guppies: if you can keep the water clean and give them good conditions, they will have babies. Then you can keep replenishing your population so that you have more and more and more!

I'm not an expert though. I just have fish as pets.

Good luck and happy early birthday!

I think I'm going to try the Lemon Tetras or a Goldfish. It's a lot of work either way I see, thanks for letting me know that. It's a shame that some of them eat each other =/
I'll let you know how things work out.
Thank you so much for your reply, and the birthday wish I appreciate it!(:

Hi Jasmine,

A lot of people use fish like Lemon Tetras to "cycle" their tank when they first start a new tank. So you could start with a couple hardy tetras (ask the fish store staff) and add a fun goldfish when your tank is able to support the tetras well.

I like goldfish because they come to look at you and to ask you for food. They are also fun to look at. It's worthwhile to add them later once you are sure that the aquarium conditions are good. Some aquarium stores will let you bring a sample of your aquarium water and they'll test it for you.

Good luck with the fishies! When you're up for a challenge, add some freshwater shrimp. They're kind of cool :)

Cheers,
Marie
