Eggless Mango Mousse Ingredients
To make mango mousse recipe you need just 3 ingredients. Mango pulp, icing sugar and fresh cream. If you want you can add a dash of vanilla in this recipe. This is a 2 layered mango mousse recipe.
I am using icing sugar for a light and creamy texture. Also icing sugar helps with forming soft peaks in cream. I have used low fat cream in this recipe.
You can use double cream or whipping cream too. The low fat cream will form only soft peaks. Once soft peaks appear, fold the mango pulp very gently and set the mousse. Chill the mousse for 3-4 hours before serving. Do not freeze this dessert.
Serve mango mousse as dessert. You can top with fresh mango pieces, mango jam before serving.
How To Make Mango Mousse
1. Peel and roughly chop the mangoes. Discard the stone. Take the chopped mangoes in a mixer jar. Add 4 tablespoons sugar. Puree well.
2. Take 3 serving glass. Add 2 teaspoons of prepared mango puree in each glass. Keep the serving glasses in fridge until we prepare the mousse.
3. Take the thick cream in a mixing bowl. Add 2 teaspoons icing sugar. Start beating the cream. Beat until soft peaks are formed.
4. Once soft peaks are formed, add the mango pulp. Mix very gently.
5. Divide the prepared mousse among the 3 glasses.
6. Set the mousse in fridge for 3 hours. Serve as dessert.
Mango Mousse With White Chocolate
Another variation you can make with this recipe is add melted white chocolate. Melt 1 cup chopped white chocolate in a double boiler or in a bowl over boiling water until smooth. Let cool.
Fold this melted white chocolate into the whipped cream along with mango puree and set the mousse. Reduce sugar according to taste while adding white chocolate.
To make vegan mango mousse use any non dairy cream or whipping cream.
Tips For making Best mango Mousse

If you are using low fat cream, chill it for few hours, drain the whey and use thick cream for whipping.
Do not whip the cream too long. just soft peaks will do.
