Mango Pudding!


Most people in Vancouver get their mango pudding after dinner at a Chinese restaurant. A typical dessert at a Chinese restaurant is either red bean soup or mango pudding. Sometimes you don’t always get mango pudding or sometimes your mango pudding is from a package which is not aways the best tasting. This mango pudding recip tastes delicious and is really simple.

The first step is to measure out the water and stick it into a pot. The water should be about room temperature.


Sprinkle the gelatine on the surface of the water.  Make sure to try to sprinkle it evenly. This helps prevent lumps and helps the gelatine soften.

In the meantime, measure out the sugar and have it ready. Once the gelatine turns a bit translucent, boil the water. This will help the gelatine thicken the pudding.


Turn off the stove once the water has started boiling.  Let it cool slightly before dissolving the sugar in the water.


To make the pudding extra rich, use evaporated milk and whipping cream! Pour a can of evaporated milk into a measuring cup. Top off the evaporated milk with regular milk till you get 3 cups of liquid.



Pour the 3 cups of liquid and whipping cream into the gelatine water. Add the mango puree and stir until everything is incorporated. At this point you can strain the mixture in a fine sieve to catch any undissolved gelatine.


Pour the mixture into glasses or a bigger bowl. I used glasses because I was hosting a party and its easier for guests to grab their own individual cup.


Place the cups on a tray and place it in the fridge. In just a couple of hours, you get delicious mango pudding!! I bet it won’t last long. Yum 🙂
