Mango Fool (Or Papaya or Banana...)

Posted for ZWT, I haven't made it yet so yield and time are a guess. Any tropical fruit can be used here. I would think the pudding might need some vanilla or coconut extract added once it's thickened.

I scaled back for 2 serves and used 1/2 a pawpaw which I cooked up and roughly mashed with a potato masher to leave a bit of texture to the dish rather than a smooth dish. I ended up with 4 small desserts and the DM and the DS for whom I made it thoroughly enjoyed just as was without the cream (didn't have any) and looking forward to having the other 2 tonight. Thank you puppitypup, made for All You Can Cook Buffet.
