mango mousse recipe

the mango mousse is light, creamy and heavenly with the gorgeous aroma and color of the mangoes.

this is an adult mousse…. meaning i have added wine to the mousse. you can add any of your favorite liqueur to the mousse.

if making for kids than skip the wine. just make the mousse with the rest of the ingredients. also the mango mousse can be topped with your favorite dry fruits or some chocolate also.

i topped the mango mousse with some blueberry preserve. i have used amul low fat cream for this dessert and it works very well when you make desserts like mousse or for cream icings on cake.

a gorgeous and beautiful dessert of mango mousse for the summers….

    hi dassana-
    can i use coconut cream (plus follow the same steps) to make it vegan?

  2. Himani says

    Hi Dassana love your blog especially the step by step pictorial instructions of the recipes. ..its a great help while making the recipes. Mango mousse looks delicious. Wanted to ask whether this mousse can be used to make a mango mousse cake or should i add agar agar? If yes then how much…and will amul cream do the job…it just doesn’t whip up especially in this hot North Indian summer…

    • says

      thanks himani. agar agar will surely help to set the mousse. i would suggest using agar agar. if you are making individual cup cakes than you can skip agar agar. amul cream works. i use amul cream for the icings i make. use a good blender or stand mixer to whip the cream. you have to adding icing sugar while whipping the cream. only add icing sugar. don’t add any other sugar, even powdered sugar does not work. when adding any other sugar amul cream does not blend till stiff peaks. remember to use chilled cream.

    Hi Dassana you have a lovely blog with great recipes. Really appreciate all the pictorial instructions it helps a lot. Have tried your veg balls in hot garlic sauce it turned out awesome. Thanks. The recipe for mousse looks great and I want to try it. I wanted to ask can this mousse be used for making a mango mousse cake. Will it hold its shape or do I need to add agar agar for it to set? If yes then what amount would you recommend?and will amul fresh cream work?

  4. Frances Spiegel says

    Thanks for this recipe – it’s delicious.

    I made it a second time and substituted low-fat fromage frais for the cream – it worked just as well.

  5. Dimple says

    Hi dassana
    The mousse looks yummy I m on a eggless soufflé making spree will surely try this one .
    Just one question is the cream used is amul fresh cream available in local grocery stores???and also do I need to whip it and how ??? Sorry for so many queries :)))))

    • says

      yes its the amul cream available in grocery stores. amul cream does not whip well as the fat content is low. even if you blend the cream in a mixer/blender or hand a blender than that works too. we don’t want soft peaks in the cream in this recipe. just a thorough whipping.

  7. says

  8. uma says

    hi Dassana,
    really quick and easy recipe, made it yesterday and my hubby really love it . thank you

  9. Shri says

    Sorry if I am asking you the same Q, would the mousse set firm and thick without agar agar or gelatin? Just curious… I have plenty of whipping cream in the fridge and mangoes too, had this Q on mind before I could go ahead making it.

    • says

      it is alright shri. the mousse is not very firm and well set the way gelatin or agar agar added mousses are. but the cream gives it a good body and firmness. you can see from the pics, the mousse is not flowing. it is set but not so set or thick that if you turn the glass it will not fall :-)

      but they are an excellent way to combine the goodness of mangoes with cream and a really good dessert. go ahead and make this delicious mango mousse :-) sweetness can be adjusted as per your preference.

    Hi Ma’m…….. its really amazing n easy as well recipe ….thanks a lot…. but i need 1 more suggestion that instead of wine what else i can add…… i can’t use lemon juice as my mom has some problem… so plz guide … thanks again… :)

    • says

      you can skip the wine altogether mehak. no need to add the lemon juice too. just make the mousse with mango puree, cream, honey or sugar. it will still taste delicious.

      for additional flavors besides the mango flavor, you can add some vanilla extract, about 1/2 tsp for this recipe. for a more indianised taste, you can add some cardamom powder and saffron, about 1/2 tsp of cardamom powder and a 4-5 strands of saffron.

  11. sonam says

    this looks like a must try! how long it takes to set in the freezer. Is there any other substitute for honey!!!

    • says

      30 minutes in the fridge is fine. it is not supposed to be kept in the freezer compartment. you can easily add sugar instead of honey.

  12. says

    hey… i like the thick texture and the lovely color here… i like the addition of liquer… nevr made anything ever before using liquer… must try this one…i simply love the gorgeous pics and the way u hve captured the wonderful mango color…superb post! happy cooking :)

    • says

      thanks beena :-)

      liquer does wonders to the mousse. i have added white sparkling wine and it was awesome with the combo of mango, cream & honey. you should try this recipe.

  13. suhani says

    hi Dassana i made this yummy mousse today and believe me it was not allowed to go in the soon as i made it vanished away..i had to add more honey in it as mine was not as sweet as i wanted it to be..

    • says

      the sweetness of the mousse depends on the sweetness of mangoes. the honey can easily be adjusted. you should have allowed to set it for some time to get a firm texture. but mangoes and cream is such an irresistible combination that no wonder you were not able to refrigerate the mousse :-)

  14. shikhabadal says

    Hi dassana,

    Nice Mousse. Instead of heavy cream and honey, can i make it with milk only. My son doesn’t like both. Hope to hear from you soon. :)

    • says

      hi shikha, you can add milk, but the texture would be a little flowing and fluid and not firm. it will be somewhat like a thick aamras. add sugar or jaggery if you are not adding honey. also i am assuming that since you are making this for your son you are not going to add any liquer. in this case you can just add 1 tsp of lemon juice to the mousse.

  15. Johana says

    Hi this recipe looks yummy!!! I have a question…when you say thick cream is that heavy whipping cream? Or is it something else? Sorry but I’m not sure what you mean and I really want to make this for my family we all love mangoes!!!! Thank you so much and hope to hear from you soon!


    • says

      thanks johana. by thick cream i mean heavy cream. in india we call it thick cream. i used cream which has 24% fat content. you can use a heavy cream which has more than 24% fat content also.

  16. says

    Nice adult mousse :-) And no gelatine or agar. Looks great. I am amazed at the posts here. Didn’t I come by this morning and find a new post… and now one again!
