Vegan Mango Pudding

Mango Pudding Recipe

A take on mango pudding usually served with traditional Chinese Dim Sum. My version of this dessert is vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free!

Vegan Mango Pudding

Hong Kong style mango pudding has always been one of my favorite desserts. Growing up, whenever we’d eat at Chinese Dim Sum restaurants, I’d want the classic Asian mango pudding dessert! It’s so light and refreshing with the perfect amount of sweetness. I decided to take my own twist on the recipe for a dairy-free and refined sugar-free version, and it does not disappoint!

Fresh chopped mangoes

This vegan mango pudding is made with fresh mangoes, which really bring out a fresh flavor! To thicken the pudding without using gelatin, I used agar agar flakes, which can be found in Asian grocery stores, the Asian section of most health stores (i.e. the sushi/nori aisle of Whole Foods), or on Amazon here. The agar agar flakes can also be found in powder form, either will work, they both act as the thickening agent in this recipe.

My favorite way to serve this vegan mango pudding is cold with chilled soy or rice milk on top, but you can also serve it with the milks warmed up!  Other traditional Chinese mango pudding toppings are fresh mint and/or more fresh mango. Let me know how you like to have it in the comments!
