Mango Jelly

I had three mangoes sitting in the fridge for almost a week. They were over-ripe and wouldn't taste good eaten on their own. I had a choice of making it into juice or jelly.
I decided on the latter as my hubby would appreciate the jelly more than a drink.

The Recipe:

1 packet mango jelly powder (already sweetened)
1 packet plain agar agar powder (unsweetened)

750 ml water
200 ml low fat milk
sugar to taste (depends on how sweet the mangoes are) I used about 4 tablespoons.

3 large mangoes, pureed

1. Dissolve agar agar powder in 250 ml water and set aside.

2. Boil remaining 500 ml water in a pot. Once water starts to boil, pour in mango jelly powder and stir.

3. Add in the agar agar mixture and milk. Once well combined, add in the pureed mango.

4. Add sugar to taste and continue stirring until it begins to boil. Remove pot and pour jelly mixture into a mould. Let it cool before refrigerating.

This was dessert after dinner!
