Mango Pudding

Jump to recipe

Mango pudding is widely held as a simple, refreshing and delicious dim sum dessert at yum cha restaurants globally. Traditionally made with fresh mango puree, fresh cream and gelatin then sweetened with sugar. But more modern versions use evaporated milk. It has a creamy and silky rich flavour with different cut fresh fruits like mango, strawberries, berries and kiwifruit as garnish when serving. This dessert is extremely popular in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore. For my gluten free recipe, I am using fresh mango, coconut milk, agar-agar powder and agave syrup. This gluten free dessert is also paleo, vegan, nut free, soy free, dairy free, corn free and refined sugar free.

Everyone enjoy the tasty, fragrant, juicy and luscious flavour of mango and often dub “the king of the fruits”. It is one of the most popular and nutritious fruits and commonly categorised as a super fruit. This exotic fruit originated from the sub-Himalayan lowlands of India. Mango (Mangifera Indica) belongs to the family of Anacardiaceae, including other flowering plants of tropical fruiting trees like cashew and pistachio. Mangoes are abundant in many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They are an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin A and folic acid (folate). In addition, they are also a good source of vitamin B6, vitamin K, copper, magnesium, potassium and healthy probiotic fiber as well as antioxidants like zeaxanthin and beta-carotene. Health benefits of mango include: may prevent cancer; lowers cholesterol; maintain healthy heart and blood pressure; removes skin acne; enhances eye health; boosts immune system; promotes brain health; aid in weight loss; prevents heat strokes; alkalises the whole body; helps in the management of diabetes and eliminates indigestion and acidity.

    Aaahhh, Mango – my most favorite of all fruits. Here in Australia it’s still a few months off until our mangos are in season but with this ever so easy recipe that just looks amazing – think I might have just try it as soon as I can.

      Mango is such a juicy and delicious fruit. Eventhough Mango is our of season now, you can actually get frozen Australian mango cubes from Woolworths if you really want to give this mango pudding a try. :)
