Mango mousse with passion fruit coulis

There are so many desserts and snacks you can do from the ripe mango fruit. As mentioned in my previous blog post, you can make juices, smoothies, jams or sorbets. Unfortunately, most of the time we dont always have the appropriate utensils or enough time to cook sophisticated recipes. So do you want to try a refreshing, yummy but easy recipe with mango? Here is the mango mousse recipe:

Ingredients for 6 people

  • 5 medium-sized mangoes (any variety)
  • 500 ml of double cream
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 100 g of cane sugar (or other sugar of your choice)
  • 4 leaves gelatine


  • Wash and peel the mangoes
  • Mash the pulp in a salad bowl and set aside
  • Soak leaf gelatine in cold water for about 10 minutes to soften
  • Squeeze excess water from the sheets before adding to the juice of the lime in a sauce pan
  • Simmer over low heat for few seconds
  • Allow the mixture to cool down, then add to the mash mango
  • Whip the cream with the sugar until soft peaks form
  • Mix the mash mango with the whipped cream mixture
  • Transfer into serving glasses and put into the freezer for an hour

You can serve this mango mousse with a passion fruit coulis. It is a excellent combination. To make the coulis you will need:

  • 5 passion fruits
  • 75 grams of sugar


  • Cut the passion fruit in half and scoop out the pulp
  • In a small saucepan, combine the passion fruit pulp and sugar
  • Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, simmer for 3-5 minutes
  • Strain if you prefer smooth texture without seeds
  • Set aside to cool

Voila! You have your coulis to pour onto your mousse when ready to serve
