Mango Mousse- Celebrating "Sweet Day"

Time truly flies. It seems it was just yesterday that we were gifted with the most beautiful gift by the Almighty-our daughter Vaanya. Today our little angel turns 14 months old and we celebrate 14 months of pure joy and love. Since her 1st month every 24th has been a small party with a bought or home made cake. This ritual continued till her first birthday with every 24th being a day of celebration. Since last month I have decided to dedicate a post on sweet for my sweety-pie on every 24th making it a "Sweet Day" on our blog.
Mango mousse is one dish that I have made the most  this season. It all started as my last attempt at trying a desert with mangoes. This desert was loved the most by all. I even tried a variation with chocolate but mango still won hands down.

So here is the recipe for the amazingly smooth and yummy Mango Mousse. You can try the variation with chocolate or any other flavour by simply substituting the mango.

Ingredients: For 4 people
  • 1 cup Mango puree
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp gelatin

Take 1/4 cup cold water and dissolve the gelatin in it. Wait for 5-10 mins till the gelatin becomes spongy. 
Meanwhile warm the mango puree in a pan and add  the sugar. Take it off the flame when its warm. Do not let it boil. 
Mix gelatin in the mango mixture. Keep aside.
Whip egg whites in a clean bowl till stiff and fluffy.  
Whip cream in another bowl till soft peaks form.
In a bigger bowl add the mango mixture and mix the egg whites and cream one by one. 
Put this mixture in bowls or glasses and refrigerate for 2-3 hours to set.
Garnish with a dollop of cream, some chopped mango and fresh mint.

  6. Hi dear,

    Am durgaa from chennai can i do this mango mousse without egg because i am a vegan . And do visiti my blog and give your comments durgasbakencook.blogspot.com

    1. Hi Durgaa, sorry for the rather late reply. This is a traditional mango mousse which heavily depends on whipped egg whites. You may leave it all together and just make it with good quality whipped cream. Have fun and tell me how it turned out.

  7. A delicious mousse......& very nice presentation.
