I’m like really into mango right now.

Mango milkshakes.

Mango smoothie bowls.

Mango pudding.

Champagne mango season is my favorite.

When these beauties flood my local grocery stores I buy copious amounts. I eat like two a day, because they’re like nature’s candy. And I freeze just as many. Champagne mangoes {also known as ataulfo mangoes} are smaller and kidney-shaped. With sweet, sweet golden yellow fruit when ripe. Their insides are velvety smooth and rich, with almost no fibrous texture. And their pit inside is very thin. Which of course yields more fruit to eat.

To be honest, champagne mangoes are so good I have a hard time enjoying other varieties. Their buttery texture yields the perfect, vegan, naturally gluten-free, raw mango pudding. This two-ingredient dessert {three if you count salt} practically makes itself.

Chill a can of coconut cream.

Blend that cream along with ripe champagne mangoes into a pudding.

Top off the pudding with fresh mint simple syrup.

Voila!

Mint is popping up everywhere right now. It’s an obvious addition in a warm weather dessert. The mint simple syrup is made with Florida Crystals® Organic Raw Cane Sugar. America’s first and only producer of certified organic sugar, grown and harvested in the United States. A company committed to sustainable agriculture and one I’m proud to partner with.

The mint simple gives the dish some slightly herbal notes to round off the sweetness of the mango. The entire dessert comes together in under ten minutes. And both the raw mango pudding and the simple syrup can be made ahead of time. Making entertaining real easy. This will be my go-to spring and summer dessert for entertaining. Do you dig?

Although I'm very fond of champagne mangoes, their season can be short-lived. Any mango variety you can find, as long as they're ripe, will work. This recipe doesn't need sugar because the mangoes are so sweet, but if your mangoes are on the tart side adding a little bit of sugar would be a-okay. I used canned coconut cream from Trader Joe's. If you cannot find this, refrigerate a can of full-fat coconut milk for 4 hours, and then use the cream that has formed at the top.
By:
Makes: 4 to 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 4 champagne mangoes {approximately 3 cups}
  • 1 cup chilled coconut cream {see notes}
  • ¼ teaspoon himalayan pink salt
  • diced mango, to garnish
  • Mint Simple Syrup, to garnish {see below}
Instructions
  1. Peel and dice the mangoes. Do not use frozen mangoes - they must be fresh.
  2. Blend or process the diced mangoes, coconut cream and salt until totally smooth. Portion the pudding into individual servings and refrigerate until you're ready to serve.
  3. Top with diced mango and a teaspoon of mint simple syrup prior to serving.

    Oh this sounds delicious. I’m wondering if it would work with any other fruits? My guess is not many since the mango has such a distinct texture to it.

      Libby – totally. I’ve been dreaming of ways to get the same texture with other fruit (maybe roasted fruit) But nothing has been successful yet with this ratio of coconut cream and no other ingredients. Let me know if you find a fruit that works!

    Champagne mangoes are my favorite variety too, any other mango pales in comparison and they just work so well in recipes. I can’t wait to try this one.

    I love this! Sounds so refreshing. I love blending cherimoya with coconut cream to create a pudding, but mangoes are so much easier to find. Dreamy photos, as always!
