Mango jelly is an easy, rich, creamy, and decadent dessert. It’s made with a combination of common ingredients such as jello, mango juice, sugar, milk, cream, and evaporated milk. In light of this, it’s simply out of this world. I often serve it up at parties and the guests simply love it. Mango jelly is a great recipe for the holidays, as well.
Let’s discuss a few tips and suggestions for this ever so delicious dessert, First, a few fresh mangoes cubes could be added to make the dish even nicer. I often have difficulty finding them, but if you live in a tropical country, you’re off to the races.
Next, this recipe calls for table cream, but all purpose cream could be used, as well. If you’re diet conscious, half and half could be used as it contains a little less fat. If you find the mango jelly on the watery side, cut back on the cream a little.
The tapioca pearls are optional as they are sometimes hard to get your hands on, but they add a nice touch. If you’re close to an Asian store, you can likely pick some up there. Many big supermarkets stock them, as well.
The jelly sets nicely in about an hour. If you are pressed for time, you can slip it in the freezer for a few minutes to help it along. The final product should chill for about 2 hours or so because it’s so much nicer cold.
