This makes a wonderful light dessert after a heavy meal. I don't think that I cooked the gelatin enough and therefore it was spooned into dessert dishes as well as spooned onto puff pastry baskets and then dusted with powdered sugar. The mousse did set and tasted great after being refrigerated. It is nicely flavored and the taste of the fresh mango really comes through.
