How to make mango mousse recipe

1. In a blender, add 2 medium sized chopped mangoes. At this step, you can also add 1 tablespoon sugar or honey. Since these mangoes were very sweet, I have not added any sugar or honey. Depending on the sweetness of the mangoes, you can add less or more of the sugar or honey.

  1. Hi , Dassana
    Me & my family love ur recipes….they come out awesome….
    Want to know for mango mousse…
    Does sugar need for this recipe?
    How much sugar?
    At which step?

    • thanks niyati. i have not added sugar in the mango mousse as the mangoes were very sweet. you can add 1 to 2 tablespoons of honey or sugar. i will update in the recipe card too. add sugar or honey when blending or pureeing the mangoes.

  2. Can I keep this desert in the fridge for a few hours to be used later

    • you can. it stays good for a couple of a days.

  3. Hi Dassana,
    Thank you so much for the recipe. This is the first time I am trying mango mousse…kids really liked it.

    • Welcome Mehra. Glad to know this.

  4. HI Dassana, we don’t have mango season here in Australia now but I do wish to try your mango mousse recipe. Can I use tinned mango pulp instead of fresh purée n if I can would the amount of pulp required be still the same or do I have to adjust it. Will all other measurements be the same – cream n sugar. We get some Indian brands mango pulp in Asian groceries, which one do you suggest I use and what variety of pulp should that be as in Alphonso or any other type of mango?

    • Salwa, yes you can use readymade mango pulp. i don’t know the brand. alphonoso mango pulp will be the best. you can use approx 1.5 to 2 cups of mango pulp.

  5. Hi!

    Love your website. A beginner cook here, some questions I have-
    1. Can I add vodka 2 tablespoons to this mango mousse?
    2. In one of the comments you have answered you can use lemon juice instead of alcohol, why is this so?
    3. 2 medium size mangoes- means how many cups mangoes chopped?
    4. Also in your other chocolate banana mouse recipe, which brand of chocolate are you using?5 stars

    • Thanks Prats. Yes you can add Vodka. Lemon juice for giving slight tang to the mousse. because some people like it that way. I use couverture chocolate and the brand is callebaut. it comes around approx 1 cup.

  6. Awesome recipe. I had to make d dessert in ten minutes and I am so glad I found this recipe!! Thank you Dassana 🙂5 stars

    • thanks deepa.

  7. thanks for this recipe..its always a hit at parties.
    Only issue I have is that I use pulp tin and I cannot make more than 4-5 cups with one one tin5 stars

    • then you will have to include more tins or cans to increase the proportions. also the proportion of cream and sugar will increase.

  8. Hey ur recipes are too good. They turn out awesome every time. Loved the eggless chocolate mousse. For mango mousse can i substitute cream with gelatin for setting? I mean do i need to add cream if i am adding unflavored gelatin. What would be the quantity of gelatin?5 stars

    • thanks. for mango mousse cream is one of the essential ingredients. gelatin is not required. you can add a bit of gelatin if you want. i think 1/2 teaspoon gelatin should be fine. you can use both cream and gelatin. in most commercially made mousses, along with cream, gelatin is also added.

      • Thank you!!

        • welcome rajesh 🙂

  9. Can i use pineapple instead of mangoes?

    • ruchi, i won’t suggest. as pineapple might react with milk. you can use bananas, strawberries.

  10. recipes are amazing. sply the picture presentation.

    thx a lot for such a wonderful guide

    • pleased to know this priyadarshi thankyou for your kind words 🙂

  11. I always want u to send me sum of your recipe so that I can learn more frm u guys.because I love to cook

    • thanks mary.

  12. Hi Dasaana,
    I wanted to know how much should I whip the cream in the blender. I am going to try this with mango purée just the way you mentioned your strawberry mousse. I just want to understand how much should I whip that cream.


    • just blending on medium speed for 1/2 a minute. stop, check and continue if you do not get soft peaks. the time will depend on the fat content of the cream. the more fat content, the faster the cream will whip.

      • Thanks for the reply

        • welcome roma.

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

    • yes pia, you can use coconut cream easily.

  14. Ur blog is amazing.. thanx 4 sharing wonderful recipes 🙂

    • welcome sabina

  15. 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…4 stars

    • 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.

  16. This look yummy, colour is very nice. Thanks for sharing.4 stars

    • welcome sadhna

  17. 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?

  18. Can’t wait to make it….

  19. I have a question…about the cream…is it whipped cream or whipping cream…


    • mona, the cream has to be whipped. in india we don’t get so many varieties of cream.

  20. 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 stars

    • thanks frances for sharing your inputs.

  21. 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 :)))))

    • 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.

  22. I am totally in love with this mousse its so good to just look got to have it .I must go to shop and get some mangoes off to chopping.Lovely recipe dassana.

  23. i have a tin of mango puree is this ok to use?? also on a trip to maderia i bought passion fruit liquor so was thinking of adding this too!!

    • hi tracey, you can use mango puree and also add the passion fruit liquor.

      • thankyou..lastly im confused as to what cream to use? thickened cream?? is it clotted cream or do i whip some cream???? thanks!

        • hi tracey, you can add thickened cream or whip up some cream too.

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

    • thats nice to know uma…..

  25. 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.

    • 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.

  26. 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… 🙂

    • 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.

      • thanks a lot for your nice suggestion…

        • welcome mehak

  27. Gorgeous color looks yummy 🙂 can you pass me some

    • you have to come here to have the mousse 🙂

  28. I cannot wait to make this recipe! Mango mousse sounds like heaven! Especially since it does not have any eggs or gelatine!

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

    • 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.

  30. 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 🙂

    • 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.

  31. 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..

    • 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 🙂

  32. 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. 🙂

    • 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.

  33. 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!


    • 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.

  34. 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!

    • thanks radha…. on a posting roll…. too many backlog of posts 🙂
