Mango Mousse was a dessert I’d eagerly look forward to my Mom making as a child. It was a beautiful, inviting dessert that would have dinner party guests raving and going back for seconds, myself included. A few years ago I opted to bring dessert at a summer potluck and asked my Mom for the recipe. I remember I kept having her repeat the recipe because I couldn’t believe how easy it was!

Since then, this has become a favorite at home, it’s great for those warm months when you want something sweet but nothing too heavy. It’s a great last minute dessert that requires no cooking or baking.

This is an eggless/vegetarian mousse that does not require eggs or gelatin. I find it best to serve after it’s been chilled for at least 2 hours. To give it some depth and added flavor I add in fresh fruit and roasted pistachios for a crunch just before serving. Some of my favorite fruits to add include pears, peaches, mango chunks, halved grapes and bananas. You could even top this with cardamom whipped cream for a trifle type dessert. This recipe is flexible and really you can add any fruit you have on hand.
