Great recipe, thanks! It's important to make sure your mangoes are fragrant! Some are delightful and others smell like turpentine. I suggest ALWAYS sniffing them before using.

I am not going to rate this because I think my mangos we less than stellar and the lime juice seemed to overpower the mixture. I would recommend tasting the mango puree mixture before adding the sugar/gelatin mixture to determine whether more sugar may be needed. I agree with other reviews in that the texture is more puree/pudding like than mousse.

my gramma says 'one word describes this: excellent' we had this with grilled pineapple after fajitas and it was nice and light and refreshing. i didn't have lime juice so i used orange instead. because of this, i only added half the sugar. i would definitely make this again, i can't wait to try it with lime!
