Shimmery Wiggly Mango Pudding


What’s a party without some glimmer and shimmer. Just add some sparkle and shine to your delicious food and set the festive mood going. Holidays mean parties, get togethers and visits from family and friends. How about making these velvety smooth and luscious mini mango puddings for your family and friends. Smear  them with edible glitter and your love and watch the gleaming faces of your near and dear ones as they enjoy the delicious dessert.

I made this dessert last weekend for my son(who is studying in a business school) and my sweet sis-in-law who were visiting us. My son is a mango lover and my doctor brother-in-law is a food connoisseur and has always been very encouraging about my food experiments and the blog. So…the mango pudding had to be made for all of them.Needless to say,everyone enjoyed it. The pudding can be made in advance and can be stored in the refrigerator for more than a week. I served it with mango jelly strips which I rolled up and sprinkled with some edible gold dust.

Don’t think. Go ahead and make this yummy dessert and store it in the fridge for the coming holidays. I set the pudding in individual silicon moulds and it was very convenient to serve.

    1. We are a family of mango lovers. Thanks to food technology if not for the fruit itself atleast we get a taste of mangoes in the form of Alphonso pulp though it can never be compared to the experience of eating the fruit in the season. Thank you for liking it Vidya☺

      1. Thanks to you dear for being so kind. Coming from someone who whips up delicacies like a ‘Ladyfinger Mousse Pie’ or a ‘Mocha Cookie Mousse’ is a big compliment for me ❤ ❤

      3. Thank you so much for the follow and for the likes. It is very encouraging. WordPress has some technical glitches time and again. I face the same problem with some of the blogs I follow.

    1. Thank you Malar. It should work just as well but i think the texture will be slightly different maybe like china grass though the taste should be the same. Please do let me know when you try.


    1. Thank you dear Judi. It stays long in the fridge. So makes a delicious ready to serve dessert for holidays. Gold dust really looks good on desserts especially chocolate ones. It just stands out beautifully.


    1. If Star Treks’ Scotty were for real I would have beamed it up for all your family. I wouldn’t be impressed with technology until I can download food .
      Thank you for the kind words.

  1. oh, a great thing to do with our newly ripening papayas!!! Thanks for this!!! (of course edible gold dust sounds awesome, but I have no doubt it’s impossible to find here in Egypt, boo hoo) Now if I could just figure out how to turn real cream into whipped cream… I did a great job of turning it into butter in my mixer… I felt pretty dumb,lol! ;^) ❤ ❤ ❤


    1. Papaya pudding sounds super interesting. Please do let me know when you try. Is it not possible that you can order it online. Amazon or some other shopping website.
      Cream behaves just like a sulking teenager 😉 Splits so easily at the drop of a hat . Especially in hot and humid weather.
      One tip is to chill it well and whip it on a bowl of ice. And the bowl can be placed in the fridge too.
      Thank you so much for stopping by ☺
