Aunt Helen’s Favorites; Tropical Mango Pudding

Note from Aunt Helen; I’ve developed this love for mango pudding and this is the best recipe for mango pudding that I’ve come across. It’s rich and creamy and so very, very good.

Tropical Mango Pudding

1/4 cup corn starch
2/3 cup (5 fl. oz. can) Evaporated Milk
3/4 cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 cup water
Pinch salt
2 cups chopped fresh mangoes (about 2 medium)
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon rum (optional)
Garnish suggestions, chopped nuts, fresh berries or a sprig of fresh mint

Place cornstarch in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Gradually add evaporated milk, stirring constantly, until cornstarch is dissolved. Add sweetened condensed milk, water and salt. Place saucepan on burner. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Pour mixture into large bowl. Let cool for 30 minutes.

Place mangoes, cinnamon and rum in blender; cover. Blend until smooth. Pour mango mixture into cooled milk mixture; stir.

Pour into dessert bowls or glasses. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Garnish as desired.
