This is the perfect make-ahead dessert. There is another make-ahead mango dessert recipe on the blog – Mango pudding made with agar agar 

I like the ginger flavor combined with mangoes. You may have noticed that in mango jam or aamras recipe. For a change, you can add cardamom powder instead of ginger powder. Or use vanilla extract.

This is light dessert with very less sugar added. Because fresh mango pulp provides some natural sweetness.

This is my last mango recipe of the season. Next I have delicious and exciting recipes coming up. This year, we are blessed with good mangoes which is not the case every year in USA. I grabbed this blessing and made many many mango recipes and shared here.

Here I have used vanilla flavored custard powder. But if you get your hands on mango flavored custard powder then PLEASE use that. I remember, my mom used to make this with mango flavored one and the flavor was amazing. I am not able to find it here, so used the regular vanilla custard powder.

I like the smooth texture of custard, so I have kept it plain and simple. But hubby prefers some texture. So I had added some mixed chopped fruits (banana, mangoes, apples, pomegranate arils) in his custard after finishing the photoshoot.
