I have never met someone who doesn’t like mangoes. Especially Filipinos who love them either green or ripe. I love green mangoes dipped in shrimp paste or bagoong.
When it comes to ripe ones, well that’s where it gets even more exciting. This mango dessert with jiggly gelatin, cream sweetened just right and mini sago is the easiest to make!
What type of mangoes to use?
Just like Mango and Nata de Coco, you can use any type of mango. But, if you want to have the best result, use Manila Mangoes or Ataulfo which I used for this recipe.
How to make Mango Jelly Dessert
You can enjoy this dessert with a few minutes of preparation. First, cut the fresh mangoes in cubes. You can also use preserved mangoes in cans if you can’t get hold of fresh ones. Mix-in the mangoes, mango flavored jelly, condensed milk, evaporated milk, whipping cream, in a bowl. Gently fold in the ingredients and avoid mashing the mangoes. Chill for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator and serve.
How to use powdered gelatin
I used gelatin sheets but you can also use powdered gelatin if you can’t get hold of gelatin sheets. If you’re using powdered gelatin, stir in the powder in water until it blooms. Heat the mixture in a microwave until it turns to liquid then mix in with the water. 2 sheets of gelatin is equivalent to 1 tsp of powdered gelatin.
Tips for an amiable experience
- To speed up the setting process of the gelatin, you can Place your jelly in the coolest part of the refrigerator after it cooled down to room temperature.
- Or, place the jelly in the freezer for 20 minutes then transfer it in the fridge to set completely. Avoid it sitting in the freezer longer than 20 minutes if you don’t want frozen jelly.
