Bright and creamy mango mousse is the perfect dessert for special occasions or last-minute cravings. This eggless mango mousse recipe is easy to make from scratch, with no cooking required. Whip up a batch of deliciously fresh and fruity mango mousse in just 10 minutes.
In a blender, add the chopped mangoes. At this step, you can also add sugar or honey if the mangoes are not overly sweet.
Blend to a smooth fine puree.
Make sure to use only sweet tasting mangoes with dairy products. Tangy or sour-sweet mangoes when mixed with cream can cause stomach upsets.
Take cream in a bowl. With an electric beater beat the cream until you see soft peaks in it.
Ensure you don't over whip the cream.
Add the mango puree to the beaten cream.
Fold gently to combine the mango puree with the whipped cream.
Pour or spoon the mango mousse in small shot glasses or bowls. Cover and chill the mousse in the refrigerator for 1 hour to a couple of hours.
Serve mango mousse cold. Garnish any of your preferred toppings from the ingredients mentioned above or enjoy the mousse as is.
This mango mousse will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 3 to 4 days. Keep the glasses covered with plastic wrap or transfer to a sealed container.
Cream: I have used the Indian brand of Amul low fat 25% cream which is a light cream for this dessert. It works very well when you make desserts like mousse or for cream icings on cake. But you can use heavy whipping cream, just be careful to not over whip the cream.
Color of mousse: The color of your mango mousse recipe will vary with the kind of mangoes you have. Alphonso mangoes give a bright beautiful golden yellow color while some other varieties of mangoes can give a light yellow color to the mousse.
Vegan options: Swap the traditional cream with vegan-friendly coconut cream for a delicious mango mousse with an extra tropical twist.
Frozen or Canned mangoes: You can use frozen and defrosted mangoes to make the puree, or even use canned mango. You’ll need about 1 cup of diced mango to make this mango mousse recipe.
Toppings and garnishes: Enjoy this fruity mousse topped with some more mangoes, chocolate shavings, a fresh dollop of whipped cream, mint leaves, chopped dried nuts or fruits, or any of your preferred goodies.
Variations: For a much more creamy and thicker mousse, add 1 banana with the mangoes. For strawberry flavor, blend some strawberries with the mangoes.
Scaling: The recipe has four to five servings, but can be easily scaled to make a large batch.
