eggless mango pudding recipe

Mango Pudding is delicious and easy to make dessert. After posting my Coconut pudding which was a huge hit in the blog I have been getting many requests to post more pudding recipes. I had promised to share the same in the last post. 
As already mentioned we love desserts made with china grass or agar agar and keep swapping the flavours. 
In summers when Mangoes are available in plenty I make sure we make most out of it besides enjoying mangoes and mango milkshake I always make Eggless Mango CheesecakeMango Icecream ,Mango kulfi ,kheer and puddings .Making Mango Pudding is super easy and requires very little ingredients .Mango Pudding/Mango China Grass is  loved by all at my place. I sometimes add coconut milk with mango the combo is amazing. 
Make some now before the mangoes disappear from the market 
how to make mango pudding

There are many recipes which call for cornflour to thicken the pudding ,I somehow do  not like using cornflour the texture is not that great and the pudding never sets as beautifully as it does with china grass/ agar agar .I prefer using Alphonso mangoes it gives lovely colour and the taste is unmatchable .You may use any variety of mango fresh or frozen works well too .Also the sweetness can be adjusted ,you may add more sugar according to your taste buds.

Coconut pudding is made using tender coconut flesh/pulp, coconut water ,milk or coconut milk or coconut cream and setting agent like agar agar, china grass or gelatine is used.. I somehow do not like the taste of gelatine so I always make it with China Grass. You can use condensed milk for extra richness I love it like this.. To make it completely vegan you can use coconut milk coconut cream and skip the regular dairy milk and condensed milk.

best coconut pudding


I have used coconut cream you may add fresh cream too. 
You can add 2 cups freshly extracted thick šŸ„„coconut milk  and skip the regular milk to make it vegan. 
I personally do not like to add any essence or flavouring agents to this coconut pudding it somehow overpowers the coconut flavour ,you may add 1/2 tsp cardamom powder if you prefer.
