Mango Jelly using Xylitol

I hope all of you are having a great Holiday Season. Happy Holiday wishes to all my readers and friends. Life is become so hectic with all the holiday gift shopping, school vacation, work, year end Doctor visits so blogging has been pushed into back seat. But hoping to be quite regular in a few days. It is been a while since I posted any recipe and to end this void thought of publishing this unseasonal post. This has been lying in my drafts from Summer. I love mangoes so much,  I make mango puree and freeze them in season which I use in various recipes when this lovely fruit is not in available.  So whenever you can get hold of this yummy fruit or if you also freeze the pulp like me, do  try out this Jelly. I used xylitol as the sweetener and I loved it but you can go ahead and substitute the sweetener of your choice.

Preparation Time – 15 Minutes
Cooking Time – 15  Minutes


Mangoes – 2 Big or 3 Medium sized
Water – 1 Cup
Xylitol – 1/4 Cup (Increase the sweetener measure based on the sweetness of your mangoes)
Lemon juice – Juice of 1 lime
Salt – pinch
Agar agar flakes – 2 Tbsp


1)  Soak the agar agar flakes in half cup of water and let this sit for few 15 to 20  minutes.
2) Peel, cube the mangoes and puree to a fine pulp by adding half cup of water. Add xylitol to this and keep this aside.
3) Heat the soaked agar agar flakes and boil till the flakes are completely dissolved, now add the mango pulp and cook for 10 minutes. Switch off the flame and add the lemon juice and mix thoroughly.
4) Leave this aside to cool for 5-10 minutes, while it is hot pour into containers and leave it aside to set.
5) Keeps in refrigerator for at least a month.

Fellow mango fan here... I think it's one of my favourite fruits! Your jelly looks wonderful - do you just eat it as it is with a spoon (like a snack jelly), or with something (like a jam jelly)?
