Creamy Mango Mousse

December 18, 2010


Mango season is here... yay!

We love eating mangoes. My plans of making 'something with mangoes' often derailed once I peeled off the skins and slice the mango cheeks... It only took me one whiff and I caved in... 

If given the choice of mango and durian... definitely ...I'll go for Mango... but its 'kind of' difficult if I have to choose between mangoes or cherries... hmmm... (its alright... no one is making me choose... so I can have both...)

However, I managed to hold myself together and resist temptations... and make this mousse for everyone to enjoy... (out of 9 mangoes ~ 3 were used for mousse, 5 were cut-up and eaten fresh by everyone....and guess what happen to  the last mango??... )

The recipe was adapted from Mango Magic by Bay Books.
3 medium size mangoes
2 tablespoon caster sugar
1 tablespoon gelatine
3 tablespoon juice
300 ml thickened cream
  1. Peeled and puree 2 mangoes and add sugar. Stir well.
  2. Sprinkle gelatine over the juice and place the bowl over hot water and stir to dissolve.
  3. Fold dissolved gelatine in the mango puree.
  4. Whip up the cream, then fold in mango mixture.
  5. Pour into dessert cup.
  6. Refrigerate until firm.
  7. thinly sliced mango cheeks for toppings


  1. Very lovely mango mousse! I posted the same :) Great minds think alike!

  2. The mangoes we are getting (not in season here) are not good for anything! I bought some last week and it was rotten though it was still half-greenish from the looks of the skin. Arrgghhh.....

    Your mango dessert is making me much happier.

  3. i just saw ellie had posted something funny! love the little chocolate garnish
