Mango Mousse for Two, or Perhaps One Satisfying Portion for Yourself

I know it's kind of late posting mango recipes. Supposedly a nice summer treat but this post has been delayed till now. Better late than sorry, I'd better put it up before winter hits.

Mango mousse -

Ingredients (2 small ones or 1 satisfying portion)?

  • 125 grams mango purée plus extra fresh mango cubes for garnish
  • 125 grams heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon gelatin powder
  • Some edible flowers or fresh mint leaves (optional)  


Dissolve the gelatin powder with 1 tablespoon of water first. Meanwhile, use 1 tablespoon of very hot water and add into the mixture. Keep mixing till all the gelatin powder has been fully dissolved. Otherwise the final mousse might not be as smooth. These little lumps due to not fully dissolved gelatin powder might feel like tiny bits of coconut jelly. Doesn't sound too bad, but we're aiming for smooth texture here.

Use fresh ripe mango, I personally prefer red skin varieties, they're sweet and aromatic. The yellow kind works well too, they tend to be meatier, but lack of strong distinct mango aroma. 

Blend most of the mango for the purée, along add in the gelatin mixture and blend together. Slice some mango into smaller cubes.

Meanwhile, use a mixer and whip the heavy whipping cream with 2 tablespoons of sugar. Keep blending till soft peaks form. 

Fold in mango purée into the heavy whipping cream mixture. Gently mix till just combined. Pour into serving cup/s. Cover with cling oil and transfer to the fridge. Might take couple hours before the mousse to set.

Garnish with fresh mango cubes, edible flowers, or fresh mint leaves right before serving.

I strongly recommend Irwin mango, its aroma is unbeatable, and one big Irwin mango should be enough for this recipe.

But do pump up the ingredients used for more servings. It can be made ahead and save a lot of time when hosting a gathering at home. After putting up some fresh mango cubes and pretty garnishes, for sure all the guests will be wowing about these little treats.
