Eggless Mango Mousse


         I love the mousse cakes that we get here and had always wanted to prepare mousse, but when looking for a recipe, I found that most mousse recipes had raw eggs in it. Though I do eat occasionally the mousse that we get outside, I wanted to make one without the raw eggs. So I came up with this eggless version using light cream and custard powder, now that mangoes are in season thought of adding mangoes too, it came out well, very easy to make, and really a light yet delicious dessert..

Need To Have
  • Light Cream - 1 cup
  • Confectioners Sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Fresh Thick Mango Pulp - 1 cup
  • Custard Powder - 2 tablespoons
  • Milk - 1/2 cup + 3 tablespoons
  • Salt - a very small pinch


Method
          Mix the custard powder in the 3 tablespoons milk, boil the remaining half cup milk, to this add the custard powder and milk mixture, stir well for a couple of minutes to form a thick custard, cool it. Beat the light cream and sugar for few mins with a hand blender, add the mango pulp, beat for some more time, finally add the custard and the salt, beat well for another 5 minutes. Pour into ramekins, cool, let it to set for at least 4 hours and then serve. I served it with some chocolate shavings and a teaspoon of nutella on top.

Sending it to Recipe Junction for Spotlight - Summer Cooler event,
                to The Pumpkin Farm for the Mango Mania 99 event and
                to Anu's Healthy Kitchen for Pari's Only - Mango event.

Note
You can use heavy cream for a very rich dessert, but I found this rich enough for us.
Depending upon the sweetness of the mangoes, increase or decrease the sugar, good quality mangoes will give you better taste.
The more you beat the more fluffy the mousse is, at least beat for 15 minutes total.

  18. Looks lovely. But wonder would it be different if you replaced the custard powder with plain cornflour - so that there would be no custard powder essence in it? Or even agar agar.

  23. Thanks for this recipe. I made it a few days ago and it tasted great. However I am sure if I had the consistency right and I am hoping that you could help me solve this problem. The souffle didn't seem like it had set enough though I left it in the fridge overnight. It was thick and firm but if I slightly tilted a bowl of souffle it would slowly pour out. Is it supposed to be that way? My custard was thick but pouring consistency, almost like thick cream. And is the custard supposed to give any firmness the way gelatin or agar agar would? Thanks in advance.

    1. Mousse will not have a gelatin firmness, not like jello, it has a fluffy but not a pouring consistency too, the custard you make shud be really thick, and if you have electric blender beat the cream well, also did you use fresh mango pulp, because the canned ones are definitely not that thick.

    2. Thanks for your response, Hema. I used an electric blender so the cream was whipped very well, it was thick. I used canned mango pulp, can't find fresh pulp so I don't have any option there. But I will give this recipe another try by making the custard thick. Hopefully that will make it work.

    3. Just wanted to update that your recipe worked great the second time. Made the custard just a little thicker and this made the mousse's texture just right. Thanks!
