Too Many Mangoes? Make Mango Pudding!

So it was Christmas recently and I bought a box of mangoes ready to take to my family. I messaged my uncle in our family whatsapp group and he said that he also had a lot of mangoes.

Then I thought, ehh.. I’ll just make mango pudding instead! So, as I raided google, this was the best mango recipe that I found that was easy to make with simple ingredients. I took this recipe from A Kitchen Cat 

Not my picture, but mine looked just as great!

  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1½ tbsp powdered gelatine
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1½ cups mango puree – fresh (I used a food processor and sieve to puree)
  • extra evaporated milk for topping


  1. Put the hot water into a bowl and sprinkle with gelatine powder. Give the mixture a quick stir to separate the gelatine powder and leave to stand for three minutes to dissolve.
  2. Add sugar and stir again – do not whisk or the mixture will get frothy and the small air bubbles will ruin the texture of the finished product.
  3. Next, add the evaporated milk and stir to combine, then add the mango puree and mix.
  4. Pour the mixture through a sieve into one large mould or a few small ones (I used those disposable sauce boxes)
  5. Add in small cubes of mango for added mango flavour
  6. Unmould by running a knife around the bottom edge and flipping onto a plate, or heating the mould briefly – either by submerging in hot water for 20 seconds or heating the mould with a blowtorch – or eat straight from the boxes as I did.
  7. Serve topped with additional evaporated milk.
What mine looked like in the small takeaway sauce boxes. :D

This recipe turned out so creamy and the mango was so sweet. I didn’t take a photo of the final product unfortunately because I was in a rush to get this all done. It was able to set in 2 – 3 hours in the fridge – no dramas at all. Definitely a quick and easy recipe to whip up if you’re needing to make something that tastes great!

It was a great dessert! Yum! Try it out!

    So glad you liked the recipe! Just one thing – don’t heat the mould with a blowtorch if it’s plastic 🙂
