Very Good! I subbed mangos for the apricots and used agar-agar in place of the gelatin, but was quite happy with the tasty result. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I ended up with a mango-flavored whipped cream. Perhaps if I would have used more agar-agar it would have turned into more a mango cream jello. But no matter, I liked it just the way it was. And as easy as it was to do, I think I'm going to keep this in mind as a topping option instead of plain whipped cream.
