Mango Custard

This cooling custard is particularly refreshing after one too many dollops of chili sauce.

Sweet and simple, this treat is the perfect finish to a spicy Asian-inspired meal. If you have guests coming, this is an impressive dessert to throw together just before they arrive, since it needs a little time in the fridge to firm up.

Serves 4

What You Need:

  • 2 mangoes
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 12 ounces coconut milk
  • 2 teasoons agave nectar
  • 2 teaspoons agar agar powder

What You Do:

  1. In a blender, purée mangoes and ice until smooth. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, bring coconut milk and agave nectar to a boil. Lower heat to medium. Add agar agar and whisk for about 5 minutes, until powder has dissolved.
  2. Add mango purée to coconut-milk mixture. Remove from heat, pour into serving dishes, and refrigerate about one hour before serving.
