Raw--Banana--Mango--Pudding1

This Banana Mango Pudding is yummy-licious!  It is wonderful as a pudding, enjoyed as a dessert, a mid-afternoon snack or even for breakfast.  And to top that off,  it is so easy to make.  Mango’s are a magical fruit.  After peeling your mango and removing the seed, put the mango in a blender and watch it transform into an amazing pudding consistency!  You could be as creative as you wanted with this.  Try adding vanilla extract, cinnamon, fresh berries, sprinkle chia or flax seeds on it, or nuts.  You can really pack a lot of nutrients and goodness in this recipe.

Raw--Banana--Mango--Pudding2Ingredients:

  • 1 large mango, ripe
  • 2 medium bananas, ripe (they should have brown spots on the banana)

Preparation:

  1. Combine the mango and bananas in the blender and process until nice and creamy.
  2. Eat right away or chill.  The texture will thicken as it chills.

How to select a ripe Mango

  • Look for mangoes that are football shaped rather than thin or flat. The flatter mangoes may be stringy. Avoid stringy looking, shriveled mangoes. The mangoes that are fuller and rounder usually have the deep color of a ripe peach instead of the yellowish-green that the other varieties have.
  • Avoid mangos with a sour or alcoholic smell. Because of their high sugar content, mangoes will ferment naturally.
  • Most mangoes when you buy them in the store are hard. They must be fully ripened before eating. Leave in cool room temperature till the flesh is yielding but not mushy. Peel color does not indicate ripeness, but most varieties will turn yellow as they ripen (except the Keitt and Kent, which can be ripe while they are still green).
  • Check the area around the stem; if it looks plump and round, the mango is ripe. With the stem end up, smell the mango. A ripe mango will have a sweet, fruity aroma and be slightly soft to the touch, like an avocado or peach. A few brown speckles is also a normal indication of ripeness. Once you’ve ripened the mango, you can refrigerate it for up to 4 days.

Raw--Banana--Mango--Pudding3How to select ripe bananas

  • Bananas are usually harvested when green. In stores, you can usually find a range of colors from green to yellow, with brown spots. Your choice should be based on when you want to eat the banana: greener ones last more days, while yellow and brown-spotted bananas should be eaten in a few days.
  • Bananas should be quite firm, bright, and the peel should not be crushed or cut. Their stems and tips should be intact. The size of the banana does not affect its quality, so just choose the size that fits you best
  • Bananas are very fragile and should be stored in a place when they will be protected.  They should be stored at room temperature to allow for the ripening process to complete.  Do not store them in the refrigerator when they are green, or this will irreversibly interrupt the ripening process (and it will not revert even if they are kept at room temperature afterward).
  • If you need to speed up the ripening process, you can place the banana in a paper wrap with an apple.  While you should not keep green bananas in the fridge, it is actually a good idea to store ripe bananas there.  Their peel will become progressively brown, but the pulp will not be affected.  To improve the flavor, it is best to keep bananas at room temperature for a while
  • If you wish to store bananas for a long time (up to 2 months), it is possible to freeze them. To do this, simply remove the peel and sprinkle some lemon juice over the pulp to prevent discoloration; then wrap them in plastic
  • I always try to keep frozen bananas in the freezer for smoothies and banana ice cream!

    This mango pudding is amazing. How can something SOOOO simple taste so good? I have made this recipe three times this week, and all you hear around my house is “mmmmm…mmmmm”. Thanks for sharing!

      Good afternoon Andrea, Mangos are amazing aren’t they?! I rarely ate them growing up, shoot, I don’t know if I ever did to be honest. They first came into my own kitchen about 10 yrs ago when I would struggle to peel and eat them. They turn into a magical fruit when blended. Right before your very eyes they transform into this amazing pudding consistency. I agree that it is rather addicting. :) I went through a phase were I was eating this almost daily. At times I would add cinnamon, raisins and dehydrated sprouted grouts for a crunch factor. You could build a parfait with it or you could even spread the “pudding” on a dehydrator sheet and make flexible wraps. Ok, you made me hungry. haha Have a great day, amie sue

    Hi Amie-Sue…your recipies are amazing! Question? Can I store this pudding in the fridge for my son? I’m always looking for good after school snacks but I don’t want it to turn brown or he won’t eat it. Should I possibly add a little lemon? Thanks for your help.

      Good evening Tina,
      Thank you :) I am glad that you are enjoying the recipes! The mango banana pudding is so simple and delicious, isn’t it?! I never have had the pudding last longer than 4 days in my fridge, not due to it going bad, but because it just gets eaten so fast. haha Because we don’t use preservatives in raw foods, keeping them around for extended periods of time can be tricky. You can add just a little lemon juice but personally, this pudding is so easy and quick to make that I would make up 2-4 days worth, fill pint jars with the pudding and store in the fridge. I would fill the jar/container to the rim and put the lid on, the less air, the less oxidization. Keep in mind, the long a product like this sits around, the more the nutritional value starts to decline. I hope this helps. Have a great evening, amie sue

    Would I be able to use frozen mangoes for this pudding?

    • amie-sue says:

      Hi Sandra,
      I don’t see why not… for the real pudding effect, be sure to thaw it first. Drain the juice but save it. See how it blends up, you can always add the juice afterward if needed. Have a great day, amie sue

    I definitely just made this, and put some vanilla extract and chia seeds in it and topped it with some young sweet coconut that i whipped up in the blender and it is TO DIE FOR! Thanks for posting this! xoxo

    Have you ever tried using frozen bananas with this? I make banana ice cream in my omega juicer with frozen bananas. I bet adding the mango to the banana ice cream would be scrumptious!!!

    • amie-sue says:

      No I haven’t Lori but I am sure it would be wonderful, but mainly if eaten right away because thawed banana can get slimy and dark brown in color.. that has been my experience. :) Blessings and joy, amie sue
