This recipe for mango mousse is easy to follow and is based on an authentic Asian mango mousse recipe. Mangos are sweet and mouthwatering and you can combine them with water to make sorbet or cream to make mousse. Mangos are available all year, since they are imported, and they are naturally very sweet and juicy. You might not want to add much sugar to this mango mousse recipe, or any at all.
Gelatin is easier to use than JELL-O ®, for this mango mousse, because gelatin is unflavored and JELL-O ® does not come in a mango flavor. The chocolate candies, whipped cream and drizzled melted chocolate are nice garnishes but you can leave the mousse plain if you prefer. The drizzled chocolate should set as soon as it comes into contact with the chilled mousse. Use chocolate ice cream syrup if you have it. Hold it high above the mousse and drizzle zigzags over it. If you like your mousse ice cold, freeze it for half an hour before serving.
This easy recipe for mango mousse is wonderful on a hot day or after a heavy meal. It is also very special after an Asian dinner. Whether you are cooking for the family or entertaining guests, this refreshing mango mousse is always welcome. Use soft, ripe mangos because they are easier to puree and have a sweeter flavor.
