Ready in 4 hours 30 minutes
A light, tropical flavored, diabetic-friendly dessert.
In a small saucepan sprinkle the gelatin over 1/4 cup cold water, let it soften for 1 minute, and heat the mixture over low heat, stirring, until the gelatin is dissolved.
In a blender blend together the mango puree, the sugar, and the vanilla, add the gelatin mixture, and blend the mixture well. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the yogurt.
In a chilled bowl beat the cream until it holds stiff peaks, fold it into the mango mixture gently but thoroughly, and divide the mousse among 4 dessert glasses or molds. Chill the mousse for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Garnish the mousses with mango slices, mint leaves, or a small chocolate wafer.

For a fully vegetarian version use non-animal based "thickener" such as Agar-Agar. I topped my version with a bit of mango coulis and a bit of "drizzled shocolate".
liamwarder 2y agoGoes great as a Dessert for our Curry Nights, First attempt didnt set until I whipped it back up and added more gelatin (from the UK so not sure how much an Envelope of Gelatin is, I used 5 leaves on my 2nd attempt and it set fine). I used a can, 450g, of already sweetened Pureed Mango(got from my local asian shop) so didnt add any more sugar. I get 12 good sized portions out of this recipe.

Foooodies 4y agoLoved it. Very easy to make and tastes great.
Gopinathan 5y agoI used canned purée that was already sweetened, and added very little extra sugar. It turned out really good! Everyone was impressed! I whipped up the rest of the heavy cream and served it on top of the mousse! I'll definitely make this again!
LauraGalceran 6y agoI live in Florida and can obtain Mangos, if your are having trouble finding them, try with peaches. I love the smooth and creamy texture. My husband enjoyed this very much. Very easy to make and once chilled and set makes a beautiful presentation for any occasion. Top with whipped cream and fresh mint.
jpatel3 8y agoWe really enjoyed this dessert! Had to change a couple of items : used mango pulp because had a can handy in the larder, used regular sugar (less than the recipe called for because the pulp came ready sweetened) but otherwise stuck to the recipe.
