This recipe is missing a component of milk or cream. The authentic dim sum dessert should have the consistency of jello, but should be opaque, not translucent because it has evaporated or condensed milk it. I found another web version of the same recipe with cream in it so I think it was omitted in Cooking Light for some reason. I agree with previous comments about needing more gelatin in it. However, the flavor was light and fresh and my friends thought it tasted good anyway.

Orange mangoes symbolize gold and riches. Prepare and chill pudding the night before. Whip the cream just before serving, and allow guests to dollop some on their own desserts.
