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 :)
Vanilla Mango Verrines Recipe
Mango & Vanilla Custard Verrines Recipe
Recipe Reference : Veg Bowl

Ingredients:
  • 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 RecipeMy Notes:
  • The custard seems to thicken very faster, so keep an eye and stir continuosly to avoid lumps.
  • The topping is of your choice, you can also add in nuts of your choice.
  • You can use 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup cream but I used milk as it was readily available in my kitchen as yes I was calorie conscious and also had the extra serving in mind when milk was used :)
  • Adjust sugar according to the sweetness of the mangoes and to ur taste.
  • The alternating flavours in every spoon was very yummy.

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.

Other Verrines Ideas:
  • Strawberry yogurt verrines
  • Coffee and vanilla
  • Chocolate and vanilla
You can use the same base of vanilla flavoured custard powder and add coco powder or any other flavour accordingly.

    1. Make the custard, transfer it to the serving bowls/glasses and then leave it in the refrigerate to let it set. Reg coffee custard, yes you can make it by mixing vanilla custard with instant coffee powder.

    2. so u mean i shud frst fill glasses layer by layer and then set it .??
      is there is any trick to layer it so that it dont mix with each other

      Delete
    3. First pour the custard layer let it set for 5-10mins then pour the mango layer then add the custard layer...I usually dont wait for each layer to set and it never gets mixed up.....But to be more cautious you can set each layer and then pour the next layer....The custard and mango pulp should be thick not too runny , that way the layers will not get mixed up.Hope this helps!!

    1. There is no trick in this.......if you add the mentioned quantity of custard powder, keep stirring in low medium flame it will get thickened.
