  Ripe mangoes, medium to large 2 pcs
  Gelatin 3tsp
  Hot water 1/2 cup
  White sugar 1/3 cup

Method of Preparation:

  • Start off by making sure that you pick out mangoes that are ripe and slightly soft but not overripe.
  • Slice up the mangoes lengthwise and separate the seeds. Scoop out the flesh.
  • Place the scooped-out flesh into a food processor or blender to create a smooth mango puree. Keep pureed mango aside.
  • Heat water in a saucepan, then remove from heat as it begins to simmer. Stir through the water as you sprinkle the gelatin over the surface. Stir the mixture briskly in order prevent lump formation.
  • Add the sugar to the hot water-gelatin mixture and stir to dissolve.
  • Add the mixture to the mango as well as the coconut milk. Mix well until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  • Pour into dessert bowls or cups. Add some diced mangoes on top. Place in the refrigerator for at least four to five hours. Serve cold. Serves three to four.
