Ready in 4 hours 30 minutes

A light, tropical flavored, diabetic-friendly dessert.


1 envelope unflavored gelatin
2 cups mango puree; (2-3 mangos)
1/3 cup Splenda
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
1 cup Plain yogurt
1 cup heavy cream; - Well-chilled

Original recipe makes 6



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.

Goes 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.

I 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!

I 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.

We 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.

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". [I posted this recipe.]
