    puppitypup's Note:

    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.

      Lovely dessert! Like Syd I decreased the amount of water. Also I halved the sweetener, using xylitol, because the papaya I used was already very sweet. As it was so hot, I didn't care to cook the papaya but just pureed it in the blender, folded it into the custard and refridgerated it for two hours. Absolutely declicious - thanks for posting! Will make this again for sure. Made for When it's hot / when it's not tag game (diabetes forum).

      Made this dessert for the Africa challenge on Sweet Desserts & made with a substitution for the sugar! Taking a hint from Susiecat's review, I kept in mind using less water in the custard & more mango in the fruit part! So, in the custard I substituted 1/2 cup of honey for the sugar while lowering the amount of water to 3/4 cup! Then, with the fruit, I used 3 mangoes instead of 2, so in order to increase the sweetner a little more, too, I used 4 tablespoons of honey & 1 teaspoon of water in place of the 4 tablespoons of sugar that I would have used! A lot of juggling, but definitely worth the effort, 'cause this dessert was nicely flavored with the mango & sweet enough without using any sugar! An interesting challenge! [Made & reviewed while touring Africa on Zaar's World Tour 4]
