Mango & Agar Pudding in Coconut Cream

A refreshing dessert which has a thickened coconut based cream, with floating soft agar milk pudding and sweet mangoes in it.

Coconut milk and mango based desserts are my all time favourite. Thai sticky rice with mangoes are to die for, the recipe of which I will post very soon, God willing. This recipe is highly inspired from the sweetest Shazia’s blog “From My Kitchen”. She made a tender coconut flavoured dessert, where she prepared the pudding in a more sturdy jelly form with coconut water instead of milk. I tried it once before and it was mind blowing. If you want to try her version, do click on this link and it will take you to her blog.

I made it slightly different with a milk agar pudding, but with the same coconut cream as Shazia’s which btw is the star of the dessert and also I included mangoes because why not?! now is the perfect time to utilise all the delicious sweet mangoes we are getting as it is in season right. And as I said mangoes and coconut are a match made in heaven.

So here is the detailed step by step instructions on how to make this. Hope you’ll give it a try.
