Mango Rice Pudding Recipe

03.10.11 by Jackie

Today, there were no eggs, fresh fruit or flour in the kitchen. I was able to find sugar, a can of Alphonso mango purée, sweet Asian rice and a few cups of milk. Rice pudding is my go-to dessert whenever my pantry is running on empty, and I found just the right set of ingredients to make a batch to satisfy my sweet tooth.

First, I boiled the rice in water, drained it and slowly cooked it in milk until tender. Once the rice was cooked, I sweetened and flavored it with the delicious mango purée. I couldn't stop there, so I finished the rice pudding with a little crème fraîche for extra creaminess and created a sugar crust, crème brûlée-style. All I can say is, yum!

Mango Cream Cheese Mousse Recipe Recipe

Mango cream cheese mousse is an ultra easy dessert. It doesn't require any cooking and can be prepared one day ahead so you can relax the day you're hosting your dinner party. The other cool thing about it is that the dessert is gluten free, making it a perfect option if one of your guests has a gluten allergy.

I flavored cream cheese with Alphonso mango pulp and added the same stabilizers I typically use in place of eggs (xanthan gum and lecithin). I also folded in some whipped cream so the mousse is light and airy. The interplay of the tanginess of the cream cheese with the sweetness of the mango is really incredible, and far more complex in flavor than I expected. The only negative about this recipe is that it’s so easy to make that I’m worried that we’ll be indulging in it more than we should (I served it in 3-ounce dessert cups). We’ll just have to spend more time exercizing!

Mango Mousse

12.16.09 by Jackie

After making mango lassi, I add some leftover mango pulp and I had a tin full of ginger snaps from yesterday. I knew I was onto something decadent. I ran to the grocery store and got some heavy cream and some white chocolate. At the store, it occurred to me that the lemon apeels (lemon-flavored chocolate chips) would give the dessert more flavor than plain white chocolate.

So what could I make with all these lovely ingredients? The answer is an egg-free mango mousse flavored with lemon apeels and garnished with homemade ginger snap cookies.
