Mango mousse in minutes

When I was younger, my mom used to make this delicious mango dessert in summer. I would ask her to make it each year, and it was a special day for me when I got it!!

Recently, on a visit to my sister’s place, she offered to make it for me-she had the recipe from mom. I was thrilled!!! This complicated recipe is, of course, way better with fresh mango and a few mango pieces in it. But for those of you who know what fresh mango is, in India, you would know that it is not an easy commodity to come by in the US.

So, if you miss mango, follow this very difficult process to get a little closer to home :)

Mango mousse in minutes


  • 1 pint carton of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tin of mango puree/ pulp
  • 2 tbsp. vanilla essence
  • 2 tbsp. of sugar or to taste


  1. Take heavy whipping cream in a bowl.
  2. Add vanilla essence.
  3. Whip for a few minutes till cream gets thick.
  4. Add mango pulp and whip for 30 seconds.
  5. The sugar is entirely optional and can be added in the end depending on how sweet you want it.
  6. It does help if you leave it to set in the fridge for a while, but its good to go even without.
  7. Voila! Dessert is ready!!

    That’s a quick n easy recipe and looks yummy too. Will surely make it. I totally agree with u regarding the quality of fruits and vegetables we get in India. It’s simply way better.

    Thanks for visiting my blog Ruhi. I was talking about the quality of mangoes we get here. They aren’t the same as India. But the rest of the fruits and veggies are pretty great. Especially if you go to a farmer’s market.
