Amazing Recipe for Mango Pudding with Chocolate Sauce

If you are having a dinner party and you want a nice dessert recipe mango pudding is ideal. You can make these delicious fruity desserts ahead and keep them in the refrigerator; bear in mind though that they are best eaten within a day. Mango pudding is made with pineapple gelatin in this recipe, unless you can find mango gelatin, although you can switch the gelatin for two little envelopes of gelatin if you prefer. The pineapple gelatin gives this mango pudding recipe a sweet flavor and complements the tropical taste.

If you want to save time, you can use a readymade ice cream syrup rather than making your own, but homemade chocolate sauce tends to be extra delicious so perhaps you would like to make it. You can also use Cool Whip instead of whipping your own cream, if you prefer. These mango puddings are light and refreshing and they are perfect after a big meal when you do not want a heavy dessert.

The evaporated milk adds to the cream flavor, as well as making this recipe for mango pudding opaque. Feel free to use mango puree if mangos are out of season or unavailable in your area. Else, you can make your own mango puree with fresh mangoes. Why not try this recipe with another fruit? Pineapple would work too. Gelatin tends not to set if it contains fresh pineapple (or kiwi, gingerroot or papaya) because of a specific enzyme found in it but canned crushed pineapple would work nicely. Then you might like to use orange gelatin or another tropical variety, for a contrasting flavor.
