When summer arrives, its season of one of my most favorite and king of fruits – Mango and I just cannot seem to have my fill of this delicious fruit

I was having one of cravings for custard and since I am on diet (which most of the time goes awry), I decide to give one of my custard – sugar free twist

So here comes the delightful sugar free twist to traditional custard. Here the sweetener can be of your choice and it’s best to use sweet mangoes else the quantity of sweetener needs to be increased. The custard is indeed delicious and none will able to tell the difference , a definite must try dessert

My hubby and kid are my guinea pigs 😛 so naturally once I made this dessert, I asked my kid to taste it and he could not even tell the difference between sugar free and sweetened custard. Now, definitely this has been my go to dessert for Summer

Preparation time: 120 mins Cooking time: 11 mins Total time: 131 mins

Servings : 4

Ingredients

  • 2  Very Ripe Mangoes (Alphonso Preferred), Peeled And Cubed
  • 2 Large Egg Yolks
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Dates/ Grated Palm Jaggery / Stevia Or Any Sweetener Of Your Choice -Adjust Quantity
  • 1 Cup Full Fat Milk/ Thick Coconut Milk
  • 2.5 Tbsp Corn Starch
  • 3-4 Tbsp cold chopped Mangoes For Garnish

Steps to cook

  • Add cubed mangoes to blender/ grinder. The sweeter and riper the mangoes, the better
  • Add dates or palm jaggery or stevia etc. Sweetener can be of your choice. The quantity required will also depend on sweetness of Mango too. I have used dates here. In case if you are using dry dates then soak it in warm water for 1 hour before grinding it
  • Blend mangoes with sweetener to form smooth puree
  • Add egg yolks and blend again for few seconds
  • Mix cornstarch With 1/4 cup milk until lump free. You can use Coconut Milk as substitute in case of dairy allergy
  • Now add cornstarch paste to mango mix and blend until well combined. Check and adjust the sweetness of the mango mix as per desired taste, since the sweetness will reduce once all ingredients are mixed so adjust the sweetness now
  • Heat remaining milk in saucepan over low heat. Do not boil
  • Now gradually add the mango mix to saucepan and stir well until lump free. Do not add mango puree mixture all at once.
  • Mix well until lump free and well combined over low heat.
  • Over low – medium heat, keep stirring the custard until it starts thickening
  • Allow custard to cool to room temperature
  • Pour the custard in serving bowls. Cover and refrigerate for minimum 1-2 hours
  • Garnish custard with chopped mangoes, fresh mint sprigs or as desired. Serve cold
