Eggless mango mousse is a creamy dessert made using fresh mango and cream. It is enjoyed by all and is a perfect dessert after having a good meal.
I have made this dessert during summer when fresh mangoes are available in plenty. I like using fresh mangoes for this dessert. However you can use the canned mango pulp available instead. (If you are using canned mango use the alphonso canned pulp). It will give nice taste and orange colour to the mousse.
I have made this dessert when one of our good friends (Vinod, Ruchita and their son Ishaan) visited us. They were the first family whom we were introduced when we moved to Sydney. The couple is a very lovely, energetic and jovial couple. They have helped us lot and we love spending time with them. It was the Christmas holidays in Sydney.
I have prepared some kebabs, bruschetta and kofta biryani for lunch. It was a hot summer afternoon and after having a good lunch, mango mousse was an excellent way to end our lunch on the hot day.
They have enjoyed the food and the dessert. The colour of the mango mousse was eye catching and the taste the of fresh mango was divine.
So friends just make this quick and easy no fuss dessert and enjoy it with your family and friends!!
