Muhallebi also known as Muhallabia, Mallabi', Mahallebi or Mahallepi (in Turkish, meaning custard, ) is a creamy pudding, similar to blancmange, in the cuisines of Cyprus and Turkey.

It is served in many versions, e.g. with chopped pistachios sprinkled on top ( Lebanese style), date syrup topped with pistachios and walnuts ( Israeli style), or with water in place of milk . Flavorings such as vanilla, orange water, and rose water may be added to the pudding.

In Israel, Malabi (Hebrew word for Muhallebi) is made of almond milk instead of cow milk because of kashrut observation. It is called 'Malabi Shekedim'.
