I received these jelly moulds from one of my ex-students, Hui Un. The sweet lady spotted these in Malaysia, but didn't know my preference, so she bought them all just for me! Aren't I lucky to be pampered by my students?

Well, I picked these two moulds for making my dessert.

I've some Dried Lavender given by Gryphon Tea sometime ago, and thought it would be a great marriage between mango and lavender. The result was an aromatic pudding with beautiful flavours from the mango and lavender! Don't you think these fishes are so cute?

how to make lavender mango pudding
If you're using lavender, the secret is that a little goes a long way..........

Lavender is very strong, so your mango pudding will be overpowered if you're too generous with the lavender. For the pudding, you can choose to discard the lavender after extracting the flavours or leave it as it is like this recipe.

  • Pour mango mixture into moulds until it reaches the eyes. Lightly dip chocolate into mixture and insert into the eye inlet, one by one. Be careful, the chocolate will melt if the mixture covers the eyes completely at this stage as it's too hot. You need to wait till mixture's slightly cooled, then spoon it slowly over the eyes. Alternatively, you can use raisins too. Let the pudding cool and set in the fridge.

If you can't find lavender, you may simply omit the dried flowers or make this stunning Lucky Koi Mango Pudding (吉祥錦鯉芒果布丁) instead. Enjoy!

  2. Hi Shirley!

    Aren't they just the most adorable cuties or should I say fishies, lol...How sweet of your student to gift you with so many molds. I can tell you sure are going to have fun with them!

    As you know, I am not too fond of Mango but the notion of adding lavender is just too irresistible. I would try these in a minute except they look so "purty" I wouldn't want to ruin them. Thank you so much for sharing, Shirley...

  3. You're very generous with the fresh mango cubes. I've not tried lavender in food before except for aromatherapy essential oil. Looks interesting. Guess what, those mould that your student got for you was originally moon cake mould You could find lots of them during the moon cake festival.

  9. Hi Shirley! You make very pretty and cute puddings. Unfortunately, I don't like the scent of lavender in food. So I guess I would leave it out and enjoy just the yummy mangoes!

  13. That's really creative, Shirley! =) Since I have leftover gelatine powder, I could probably adapt your recipe and substitute mango for milk. ^^ I can't quite stomach mango because it'll give me intense stomach ache after eating it.

    Ahhhh!!! That pineapple mould of yours is evoking memories. XD

    My deepest apologies for not being able to drop by as frequently as I should. College life is rather hectic and stressful. =/
