Creamy Sweet Potato Rice Pudding with Mango Pearls (Vegan)

Its been snowing since the moment  I woke up and as I type this and look out the window, the snowflakes are still falling albeit slowly.  I went out into the garden briefly, the snow was soft and slushy.  I saw some people with children walking up the lane with sleighs to go up in the hills.  Its not for me.  I have never really liked the snow, even when I was a child - I really disliked playing snowballs, all that cold ice trickling down ...even the snow angels don't sing to me. I am hoping the snow will remain slushy and melt away and not freeze and turn to ice over night, as driving to work tomorrow in the early hours will be dangerous as many parts of the UK have been issues with an Amber Weather Warning.  I hope your all safe and warm, wherever you are. 

I have decided to share with you a Amber Warming Creamy Sweet Potato Rice Pudding with Mango Pearls. 
This Amber Warming Creamy Sweet Potato Rice Pudding with Mango Pearls was most welcome.  The mango pearls of course are optional.  When it bursts in your mouth, the sweet mango flavoured liquid offsets the creamy texture of the rice pudding, in the way a syrup would.  In case your wondering about the mango pearls, they were actually were given to me by my family.  The flaavoured mango pearls are also known as popping Boba balls bursting juice when they explode in your mouth. 



This Sweet Potato Rice Pudding with Mango Pearls  was delicious.  I was only a little disappointed in that the deep orange colouring did not come through strong, 
I am sharing this with Inheritance Recipes co hosted by Solange at Pebble Soup and Coffee and Vanilla as Rice Pudding with the addition of vegetables is becoming a tradition in my little home

  4. This looks amazing Shaheen. I love the texture of those little balls when they burst in the mouth, but I would never have thought of using them on a desert. Or of using sweet potato with rice pudding for that matter. Fab idea!
    We have had no snow where I am..... Just endless (very heavy) rain. Much as I am not a massive snow lover, I am quite envious! x

  5. Such an unusual dessert. I love addition of the mango pearls, they decorate the pudding so nicely! Thank you for sharing with the Inheritance Recipes.

    Here in Brighton we had couple of hours of snow, but it was melting as soon as it touched ground. I'm also not a fan of snow or cold weather all together. I'm wrapped up in blanket all day today, school closed due to flood so no school run for me tomorrow.

  6. That looks so fancy! At least the arrival of the snow gives you an excuse to make something lovely and warming and comforting like this.

  7. Wow!I do like the look of that! Perfect comfort food on cold days... here did you get the mango pearls? Are they the same as the ones you get in bubble tea? I have only seen the tapioca type in the shops here.

    1. Thank you. My family frequent cities with a diverse population and sometimes come back with specialist ingredients, i think they got these from London, a East Asian place that was selling them - I've never seen them being sold before. They are different from teh ones in bubble tea which are chewy and I have those at home http://allotment2kitchen.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/early-january-in-my-kitchen.html.

  8. This is an amber warning I can get behind :-) What a lovely winter dish, although I think I'd prefer it without the mango pearls as I don't like 'pearl' components usually.

    I hope you're faring ok after the snow and things haven't been too icy.

    1. Thank you so much Kari.
      Thanks for the comment about the weather, we are doing well. Though I am feeling seasonally under the weather, not Christmas - just feel like I got a bit of a bug in my system that is making me feeling unwell a little, but not so bad to take time off your work. Hope you and mimi bite are all well

  9. It sounds lovely and I would love to try those popping mango balls. Such a classy way to top rice pudding!

    1. Thank you Corina, I hope you find the mango popping balls, i was told they also had them in strawberry and peach flavoured ones and a green flavoured one too, not sure what that was though.

  10. Wow what a great idea to add sweet potato to a ricepudding! Those mango pearls are probably great too. I'm sure that the snow has melted in the meanwhile in the UK? I know how dangerous it gets there with ice, as the road maintenance isn't really prepared for anything.

    1. Thank you VegHog.
      The snow has melted away, thank goodness. But it is really really cold here now, esp. in the Welsh valleys.
