Easy Creamy Mango Pudding Recipe

For an impressive recipe, you cannot go wrong with vanilla and mango pudding served in a homemade pastry bowl. This beautiful-looking dessert is not complicated to make. Do not panic about the pastry either because this is very straightforward. If you want to simplify if further, use four bowls for the pastry and shape the pastry bowls like mini pie crusts, rather than wrapping it around four small objects to get the rustic-looking pastry in the photo.

To make it even easier, you can use four store-bought pastry shells instead but then people might wrongly assume the whole dessert is store-bought, just because the pastry does not look homemade! Pastry is easy to cook but you ought to keep an eye on it. When it starts to go golden brown, it is ready. If it bubbles, you can prick the bubbles with a fork and press it back into shape, then let it finish baking.

If you are looking for a very easy recipe, mango pudding is a great choice. The following recipe combines mango puree with vanilla instant pudding to make the mango pudding. This is because instant pudding does not come in mango flavor. The vanilla and mango work nicely together and the overall flavor is very good. The texture is really creamy and works nicely with the pastry. You can make the pudding while the pastry cases are baking, if you want, then serve the chilled pudding in the warm pastry shells, for a nice contrast.
