Mango and Vanilla Custard Verrines | Mango Custard Desserts

I am always bowled out by the idea of layered desserts so when I saw this in Vegbowl I know I'm surely going to try. Verrines are layered desserts in a small glass - the variation of layering is endless either sweet or savoury. I felt I didnt get the layers evenly but I say this is truely luxury in a shot glass :)

Recipe Reference : Veg Bowl

  • Milk - 1 cup
  • Custard powder - 1 tbsp (or substitute with 1 tbsp corflour and 1 tsp vanilla essence)
  • Sugar - 3 tsp (Adjust sweetness according to your taste)
  • Thick undiluted mango pulp - 1/2 cup
  • Cherries - 1 tbsp chopped just for garnishing (optional)

Mango & Vanilla Custard Verrines RecipeMethod:
  1. Mix custard powder in 1/4 cup milk, mix well and keep aside. Heat the remaining milk with sugar, bring it to a boil and then add the custard powder milk mixture to it.
  2. Stir continuosly so that no lumps are formed. This will thicken up soon so keep stirring.
  3. When the mixture starts bubbling and looks thickened(if you pour, it should not be runny) switch off. Allow it to cool down completely.
  4. Now to assemble the verrines add a tbsp of prepared vanilla custard alternating it with a tbsp of mango pulp till it reaches the brim of the glasses. Add the chopped cherries in top.
  5. Refrigerate the verrines atleast for an hr and serve chilled.

Mango & Vanilla Custard Verrines Recipe
Layered desserts are my fav both preparing and eating :) I usually make my desserts in a small glass as desserts are mostly had after our heavy lunch on sundays. Vanilla and mango flavours are always a winning combination and this one is no exception to it.

I always look forward for new interesting dessert ideas while hosting a dinner or lunch. And my choice is always a low fat one to help another serving.
