Make sure that you use ripe mangoes in this dish. The sweet, juicy flesh creates a deliciously smooth mousse.

  1. Peel the mangoes and remove the flesh from the seeds. Dice the flesh of 2 of the mangoes purée the rest in a blender.
  2. Put the purée into a glass mixing bowl, and stir in the lime or lemon juice.
  3. Beat the egg whites with the salt until they are frothy. Sprinkle in the sugar, and continue to beat until stiff. Then gently fold in the cream.

The flavor is entirely dependent on the flavor of the mangoes so as the recipe says ripe, sweet mangoes are key. I found it too be less stiff/mousse like than I would have liked, more like a thick sauce. Still with the right mangoes it's a nice light dessert.

What a great light and refreshing mango dessert! This was yummy all by itself, but I'm guessing that it would be wonderful as part of a trifle as well. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2011
