Today’s weather was  so good, 24°C to 26°C~ warm and sunny! I think it is the summer that we longed for. Yay, it comes at last!

But the news said the weather in America will reach to 113°F/ 45°C, such too hot, I wish everyone stay in the shade and try not  to expose under the sun for too long, in case it will get sunstroke!

So, for this reason, we need some iced cold drink or dessert to treat ourselves. And now MANGO is the most seasonal fruits on the market, and the price is cheaper overall the year.

And the season of Pakistani mangoes begins in May till August. This means that you could enjoy Pakistani mangoes for about four months. Pakistani mangoes are rich in vitamin A, C, D and other antioxidant vitamins. They are high in fibre, and contain a small amount of carbohydrates, calcium, iron, potassium and a little protein. And I just found out some informations about : mangoes have more carotenoids than most other fruits – and that helps ward off colds and reduces the risk of cancer and heart disease.

And part of this dessert recipe  adapted from Yahoo web.

The original recipe used gelatin and cream, and I want to make this dessert to be dairy-free and for vegan friendly, so change the gelatin to agar agar powder; and the cream change to coconut cream ( not the block one, is the top layer from the tin* ).

Note: 

  • I tried to whisk some of the coconut cream into the smooth form, and piped on top of the mango pudding, but I didn’t have much to top up. So, you can save a bit more coconut cream from the tinned, add about 1 tbsp of icing sugar and whisk it, use icing bag to make the frosting on top, that will make it look more special and taste even better.
  • Before you make this dessert, put the can of coconut milk chill into the fridge for few hours at lease, and don’t try to shake it, because we need the top layer stay hard for frosting.
