Mango Pudding

This is another one of my favourite recipes. I have had this for a long long time. It was only when I joined a mummies forum that I started sharing this recipe online. Many people have tried and most of the time I get good feedback.

For those of you who just love a creamy, soft and yummy mango pudding (just like those served at tim sum restaurant, if not even better), you must give this recipe a go.

100 gm blended mango (puree)
100 gm mango cubes (I normally add more than that)
100 ml whipping cream (I substitute by 30 ml UHT milk, but this is optional)
20 gm gelatine (if you buy the box with 5 individual pkt type, use 2 pkts)
80-100 gm sugar (again I don't like it too sweet so I use 80 gm only)
300 ml water
250 gm of ice-cream (if you can find mango ice-cream the taste is even better but I don't think you can find it easily now so use vanilla flavour)

1. Mix water, sugar and gelatine in pan. Boil over slow fire until sugar and gelatine dissolve.
2. Leave the mixture to cool. When cool, add mango puree, mango cubes, whip cream and ice-cream.
3. Stir mixture until all ice-cream is melted. Pour into small cups and leave in fridge to set.

Hi Hugbear,
How do you measure the 250gm ice cream? Scoop it up and weigh it?
If replace with vanilla flavour, how much to use?
Love mango pudding serve with evaporated milk, must try your recipe.

Hi Lee Lee,

I have tried yr butter cake & it is by far the best butter cake i've tried. Thanks for sharing. Looking at this recipe, do i replace 100ml of whipping cream with 30ml of UHT milk (or do i add 30ml UHT & 70mlwhipping cream).Tks

Hugbear said...

Yes, measure 250 gm of the ice cream. Whether it is mango flavour or vanila flavour, the amount is still the same.

Yes, you can use all 100 ml of whipping cream or you can use 30 ml of UHT milk and 70ml of whipping cream.

Hi hugbear,
Thanks for the reply.

Hi hugbear,

I am based in KL and I have tasted very nice mango puddings when I was in Singapore. I would like to try out your recipe but I may I ask if the mango puree is made from freash mango or bought frozen from supermarkets. Secondly, what are mango cubes and where can I find them?

Hugbear said...

Hi 1000colors, I missed out on your question. Either store bought mango puree or homemade puree is ok for this recipe. Mango cubes are just just fresh mango that you cut up. Do let me know if you have tried it. Cheers

Please advise - is the whipping cream to be whipped 1st b4 adding or just pour straight out from the box? Thks!

Hugbear said...

Pour straight from the box, no need whipping.

Dana said...

Hi, thanks for the wonderful receipe. However, my pudding turned out to be soft and creamy (like ice-cream). Can you please tell me what is wrong?

Hugbear said...

Did you make sure that all the gelatine is dissolved? All ingredients measured correctly? Anyway, this pudding's texture should be mousse-like. So it shouldn't be hard in the first place.

Anonymous said...

Hi Hugbear.
I just finished making this pudding but unfortunately, it curdled instead of being creamy and smooth. Do you know why? Otherwise it tasted yummy.

Hugbear said...

Hi Anonymous,


Did you wait until the water, sugar gelatine mixture was too cold? Don't let it be too cold, it is better to add your ice cream, mango puree when mixture is warm instead of cold. This way, the ice cream will melt better when you are stirring it. Do not be tempted to use the sugar water when it is still very hot, your pudding will come out with two layers when cold, a lighter colour and darker colour layer.

Hi Hugbear,
I did cool it down. I put in the mango puree and cubes 1st. When I added the icecream it started to curdle immediately. Is the ice cream supposed to be hard or melted when I add into the gelatin-sugar mixture?
thanks

reena said...

Hi Lee Lee,
For the whipping cream, does it matter if it's dairy or non-dairy?

Hugbear said...

The ice cream can be a little melted. Do this when the gelatine mixture is a little bit warm (not hot).

Reena, it doesn't matter, both are ok to be used.

reena said...

Lee Lee,
Mine tasted more like mousse than pudding leh... Do you have any idea what might have gone wrong?? Used PH's Topping Cream.

Hugbear said...

Reena, you cannot add the ice cream and the rest in when the gelatine mixture is still very hot. Just warm.

Hi Lee Lee,

Tried yr mango pudding recipe but mine turn out very hard (more like kueh than pudding !)And also, the ice- cream foam floats on top of the pudding, unable to dissolve/ remove.:( Wonder what happens...?

pansy said...

hi hugbear!

this recipe looks yummy and easy to make! will be testing it out this weekend.

1) mango puree - how puree is it? do we just put the mango in a food processor?

2) the mango pudding is sometimes served up with a milky like sauce. would you have any idea how to make that sauce as well?

thanks!
pansy

hi, can i use 100ml full cream milk instead of whipping cream?
if yes, do i have to make any modification?
thanks....

Hugbear said...

Yes, you can replace with full cream milk. No need to make any adjustments.

i can't seem to find any gelatin nor jello/agar2 powder here in where i'm staying and i have 3 ripening mango in the fridge
please help....how bout cornstarch?

Hugbear said...

Hi anonymous, I doubt you can use cornstarch. I guess there is no other alternatives. Can you get instant jelly powder?

Quinn said...

Hi there....
I have had this recipe for a long time too...
Is this your self-creation recipe?
Because it is a hand-me-down from my grandma
But the recipe proportion and ingredients are a little different though and mine end up with a more silky smooth texture. Perhaps you might wanna try mine, :)

Anonymous said...

hi may i know where did you get your gelatine powder?

Hugbear said...

Hi Quinn, would love to see what is your recipe. Is it possible to email it to me at leeleet@gmail.com
Thanks.

Hugbear said...

Hi anonymous, I bought my gelatine powder from Phoon Huat.

hi hugbear,
thanks to your recipe, I was nicknamed 'master chef' by my bro in law ;)
At first I was rather discouraged when reading some of the posts here, what with curdling of the mixture and what not. But thank goodness everything went alrite, phew!
Btw, i'm wondering if it's possible to substitute gelatin with agar-agar powder? If yes, how much do I use in place of gelatin?
Thanks and cheers!

My Bug Life said...

Hi! My sis got your recipe and tried it out...what a lovely and tasty mango pudding! Thanks for the recipe. I shall post it sometime next week at http://foodientravelbug.blogspot.com

hi, may i know how to make the mango puree without a blender? would love to try your recipe. looks yummy :) thanks.

Hugbear said...

You can try using very very ripe mango and let it go through a sieve to get mango puree if you don't have a blender.

Peng said...

ur mango pudding looks so yummy, i getting ready all the ingredients already going to try out tonight! dun mind if i post ur recipe on my blogs if successful?

Hugbear said...

Hi Peng, of course you can post my recipe on your blog as long as you give the relevant credit. Wish you success in your attempt.

Peng said...

Hi Hugbear, my mango pudding is a success! thanks so much for sharing such yummy recipe!

Serene said...

hi,
Can i replace gelatine with agar agar power?

Serene

hwh1 said...

Hi Lee Lee,
Can I know what is the replacement for gelatine. I could not find this ingredient.

Thanks!

Sara said...

would 250gm of ice cream be the same as 1 cup ice cream? cos i dont have a kitchen scale to weight them but only measuring cups...

Hugbear said...

Hi Sara, you can use a little bit more than a cup of ice cream.

Anonymous said...

Hi, i just made this pudding following the recipe give, but I ended up with a cup of "pudding" that looks like melted ice-cream! I wonder what went wrong. Is there anyway I can salvage it? Like, boil another portion of gelatin and pour all my "ice-cream" in and leave it to set again? Can you email your response to my email niboryam@hotmail.com

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hugbear said...

Try dissolving another 10g of gelatine with 3 tbsp of hot water and pour this into the pudding. Leave the pudding in the fridge to set.

huishi said...

is gelatine same as agar agar powder?

Hugbear said...

Hi HuiShi, no they are not the same.

Elaine said...

hi bugbear,

can i just omit the vanilla ice cream? can i replace with other things?

Anonymous said...

Hey, looks like a great recipe. I'm going to try to make it for my gal tomorrow night.

Question, how do i get the gelatine? like where can i buy it from or how can i make it? i'm a lil unclear.

Hugbear said...

You can buy it from supermarkets or from shops selling baking stuff.

Anonymous said...

Hi Hugbear.
Can I replace the 30 ml of milk with evaporated milk?

Regards, Janice

Hugbear said...

Hi Janice, yes you can.

Anonymous said...

Hi, Bakingmum. I have tried your Mango Pudding is very nice.

Instead of using mango can replace it with fresh orange juice. Just only the juice without cubes. If yes, how much should i use?

Thanks in advance for your advise.

evelyn said...

helo.
i try out alot of the repice,
all very nice, jus wan to say thanks you .

midnight_angel said...

Hi hugbear! I just came across your recipe and i thought it quite easy. I am a 13 yr old and i really wanna make this pudding 4 my mum to surprise her! Do u think i can do it on my own????

Hugbear said...

Yes, I should think you would be able to do this on your own. The only part where you need to use the store and fire is when you need to dissolve the gelatine with the water and sugar. You can do this over small fire just to be safe.

reen said...

hi, i am a student and we are having our home economics exam soon. i will be making mango pudding for dessert but i need help with two things. please please reply to me as soon as possible. thanks

1)how long will it take for the pudding to set if i follow this recipe?
2)is it okay if i do not use the ice cream?
please reply.tks. (:

Hugbear said...

Hi Reen, it will set in 1 to 2 hours' time. If you don't use ice cream it won't taste as good. I would suggest you try out the recipe w/o ice cream before your exam and also try to time how long it takes for your pudding to set.

reen said...

hi, thanks so much for replying. our exam is only 2 hrs so would one and a half hours be enough for it to set. pls do reply. thanks so much. (:

Hugbear said...

Reen, if the fridge is very cold, 1.5 hrs should be ok to set but the pudding will taste better if it is really cold. I think you should really do a test run before the exam. You may have to adjust the amount of gelatine a bit more if you are not using ice cream.

Ida said...

Hi Hugbear,

I tried your recipe but I failed miserably. The pudding ended up like a pool of ice cream instead. I have put it in the freezer and will eat it like ice-cream.

I used jelly crystals instead of gelatin powder (I thought they are the same and now am not so sure). Before I came to your blog to check if I had copied the recipe wrongly, I thought it could be that I had put in too much ice-cream.

Well, I had used about twice as much mango puree and doubled the jelly crystals to 40gm. Could this be the problem?

Other than increasing the jelly crystals and mango puree portions, I followed everything to the T and was mindful of the comments posted by others who failed.

Can you also explain why the ice cream should only be mixed into the gelatin mixture when it is warm and not hot nor cooled?

Thanks.

Hugbear said...

Hi Ida, you cannot use jelly crystals, you got to use gelatine. They are different. The reason for adding the ice cream when it is warm is for the reason of easy mixing it into the mixture. If you prefer to add it in when the mixture is cool, no problem also.

Ida said...

Thanks very much, Hugbear. :0)

Jo Liaw said...

Hi. tried your mango pudding. It's great.
Now, if I want to make Durian Pudding, can I still follow this recipe?

Anonymous said...

Hi

Made the mango pudding just the way you wrote... results... my hubby has been eating one everyday!! But somehow my pudding is more white in colour unlike yours... and very creamy. Wonder if it is caused by the vanilla ice cream i used?

Adam said...

Hi,

I just want to confirm more gelatin is to harden the pudding more?

So i put lesser if I want it to be softer?

Shereen said...

Hi Hugbear,


Can i request for other type of easy making pudding beside mango pudding?


It is my first time trying doing puddings.

Hi Hugbear,

The mango pudding curdled very quickly after i added in icecream and stirred until all melted. It started to curdle straightaway after i stop stirring.

The gelatin mixture was little bit warmish when i added the freezer-cold icecream. Is that the reason what went wrong?

My colour also looks very vanilla, not yellow and nice like yours.

The taste is also weird, doesn't taste like mango nor vanilla icecream nor milk. Is 100g of pureed mango too little? I replaced the whipping cream with 30ml UHT packet milk.

I have taken a photo of the pudding following your recipe and the pudding made using off-the-shelf mix. If you would be willing to email me at waimay35@hotmail.com, i will be able to share with you the photo and the texture of both. Pls do so.

Thanks!
