Mango Pudding Vegan Plant-Based Raw Food Recipe

Mango Pudding

Mango pudding is a delicious way to use the fantastic mangos that can be found on sale right now. In the US and most places, mango can be found year round. They’re more plentiful and prices tend to be cheaper in early winter and then again in the summer, but they’re always available and super tasty. If, for some reason, you can’t find fresh mango then, by all means, feel free to use frozen. The texture will be a little different, but it’s just as sweet and nutritious. 
 
This mango pudding is a simple raw food recipe. I think it’s lovely.

How to Choose a Ripe Mango?

Like peaches, nectarines, and avocados, a perfectly ripe mango will yield slightly to pressure when squeezed gently. The color is not a good indicator of ripeness and they don’t reliably smell sweet. Squeeze.

How to Ripen and Store Mangos

Unripe mangos should not be refrigerated. It’s best to leave them out to ripen at room temperature. They’re better stored that way as well if you’re going to use them within a day or so. And who can resist a ripe mango longer than that?

Impatient? Place unripe mangos in a paper bag and leave at room temperature. They should ripen in a few days. 

Mangos can be frozen to preserve their deliciousness for later. This is really helpful if you find them on sale. Just peel and cube the mangos and freeze in an airtight container for up to a few months. Use them in smoothies or in puddings like this. The texture will be mushy after freezing, but they’re still so good.

Did you know that mangos are related to cashews and pistachios?
