  • 1 ripe mango (3/4 cup mango puree)
  • 200 ml milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn flour (corn starch)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • fresh mango chunks to serve
  1. In a pan, mix the corn flour with the sugar.

  2. Pour the milk in, and whisk well to avoid lumps.

  3. Simmer the custard on a low to medium heat until it thickens, and it coats the back on a spoon.

  4. Add the mango puree and vanilla extract, and leave to cook for a further 1-2 minutes.

  5. Leave to cool completely, then refrigerate for at least 6 hours.

  6. Serve with fresh mango chunks, or any other fruit of your choice.
