What is mango mousse?
Mango mousse is made up of fresh mangoes/ pulp, whipped cream to get an airy fluffy texture, gelatine to bind, condensed milk for thickening.
What consistency should mousse be?
Mousse should be in a smooth and light texture. It should not be runny. It gets it right consistency by folding whipped cream or adding gelatine.
Does mousse have gelatine?
Mousse can be made with or without gelatin. It depends upon one’s personal choice and the consistency of the mouse you prefer. It also depends on the vessel you are using to make the dessert. Filing for mango mousse cake we use less gelatine compared to the mousse cups (depends upon the consistency you need)
Can mango mousse be frozen ?
yes, we can. Chill for at least 4 hours and scoop portions into ice cream dishes.
Step by step making of mango mousse with gelatine:
- Alphonso mangoes – 2 nos
- Double cream – 200 ml
- Condensed milk – 1/2 cup
- Gelatin powder – 2 tsp
- Hot water – 1/4 cup
- Vanilla essence – 1 tsp
- For garnish – 1 strawberry & mint leaf
Time needed: 15 minutes.
Method to make
Blitz the mangoes. I have used here Alphonso mangoes.
Whip the cream until it soft peaks. Cream plays a great role in mango mousse. It takes 10 to 12 minutes to get the right consistency
Once the cream reached its soft peak add condensed milk.
Divide the mixture into two separate bowls.
Add pureed mango into one bowl and few drops go vanilla essence into the other bowl.
Melt the gelatine in medium heat stirring occasionally. Let the mixture come to a simmer. This will make sure the gelatine dissolved completely. Or use a microwave to melt the gelatine.
Tilt your glass and pour vanilla mix half of the glass, keep in refrigerator to set and pour the mango mix on top.
Port the mango mixture
Freeze for another half an hour. Garnish with some mint and strawberry.
Enjoy the delicious mango mousse with condensed milk.
Frequently asked questions:
Mousse is made by folding of whipped cream and sugar base. Whereas in pudding cooking is involved with milk and sugar base. Souffle is always leavened with whipped egg yolks.
Mango mousse can be kept frozen for up to 2 months. As the mousse contains sugar and gelatine it won’t be frozen completely. Keep overnight in a fridge to show the mousse and use it within 24 hours.
