Mango Fruit Custard | Eggless Mango Custard

Mango Fruit Custard, an easy to make delicious dessert with a lot of fruits and mango custard. In general, custard is a creamy dessert made with milk/cream, a sweetener and egg yolks or it's made with the readily available custard powder at the store. 

To prepare this mango custard, instead of using egg yolks or custard powder, i have used corn flour. It helps to thicken the milk and give the creamy consistency. 

This mango custard is so creamy and delicious. It can be prepared ahead of time and stored it in the refrigerator. When you are ready to serve, simply add the fresh fruits to the custard. Voila, scrumptious dessert is ready in minutes.

This mango fruit custard is one of the few desserts that can be easily prepared for large crowds. Perfect for summer get together and it's such a crowd pleaser ! 

Mango Vs Mango Puree
In today's recipe, i have used the store bought kesar mango pulp/puree. But you can also make the mango puree from the fresh mangoes. Scoop out the mango pulp, put it in the blender along with some sugar and blend into smooth puree. Tada, your mango puree is ready and use it in the recipe as instructed ! 

As i mentioned, i have used the store bought mango puree which already has sugar in it. So to prepare the custard, it doesn't need a lot of sugar. 
But if you're using homemade mango puree , adjust the sugar according to the sweetness of the mango and your liking.  

Personally, i like this mango custard with a burst of mango flavour. Hence i haven't added any other flavourings. But cardamom and vanilla flavours really go well with the mango custard, so feel free to add more flavourings if you like. 

In today's recipe, i have used banana, apple, mango and grapes in the custard. But you can add whatever the fruits you like. I would recommend to avoid the watery fruits like watermelon because it makes the custard dilute and it doesn't taste good. 
Pomegranate and berries also taste good with this mango custard. In addition to fruits, you can also add chopped nuts ! 

Now let's check out on how to make this delicious mango fruit custard.
