A fresh, fruity alternative (or addition to!) Christmas pudding for your festive dessert. But just as good eaten any other time of year, and it couldn’t be easier to make.

Ingredients

  • 2 mangoes, peeled, stoned and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons rum
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 2 pieces stem ginger, finely chopped
  • For the topping:
  • 300ml carton double cream
  • 4 meringue nests, crushed
  • Sprigs of mint, for decoration
  • 6 small serving dishes

Method

  • Place mango in a bowl and stir in the rum, icing sugar and ginger. Divide most of mixture between serving dishes, reserving a little to spoon on top. Cover the dishes, and keep in a cool place until serving.

  • Just before serving, whisk the cream until it forms soft peaks and fold in the crushed meringue.

  • Spoon the mixture on top of the mango. Spoon a little of the reserved chopped mango on top of each. Decorate each dish with a sprig of mint and serve.
