Tips for the Best Mango Mousse

  • Avoid overmixing. The airy, velvety texture of the cream is key to making this recipe of mango work!
  • Make sure the mangoes you use are ripe. Otherwise, you’ll miss out on the sweet flavor and creamy texture.
  • The colder, the better! Make sure that the heavy cream and mixing bowl are well chilled before whipping to achieve stiff peaks. I like to stick the bowl (and beaters) in the freezer for about 15 minutes beforehand.
  • Don’t serve right away. The dessert needs at least 4 hours in the fridge to properly set. 
  • Step up your presentation. You can also chill the mixture in the larger bowl for four hours, then spoon it into a piping bag and swirl it into serving cups. Don’t forget toppings too!

Variations for this Recipe of Mango Mousse

  • If you’re an orange-chocolate lover, melt some dark chocolate to drizzle on top of the dessert just before serving. 
  • Layer mango mousse with coconut yogurt or top with coconut-flavored whipped cream for a fun parfait.
  • Add a mix of tropical fruits like pineapple, papaya, lime, or kiwi to the mousse for an extra burst of flavor.

Why Is My Homemade Mousse Lumpy?

Proper blending and processing are crucial. There’s a fine line between undermixed and overmixed, so keep a close eye on the texture of both the cream and the mango mixture!

The mango mixture should be silky smooth and the whipped cream should form stiff peaks before the two are folded together.

Can this Mango Mousse Recipe Be Made Dairy-Free?

Of course! Replace the sweetened condensed milk and heavy cream with coconut condensed milk and coconut cream for a tropical dairy-free alternative!

Since these aren’t quite as thick, the texture might not be exactly the same, but it will still be delicious.

Does Homemade Mousse Get Hard in the Refrigerator? 

When you put the mousse in the fridge, it’s totally normal for it to get firmer, which makes it easier to scoop.

If you prefer the original texture, let it sit at room temperature before serving to make it softer again!

How Do I Fix an Over-Whipped Cream?

If the cream is over-whipped and becomes grainy, measure out 1⁄2 cup of unwhipped heavy cream and gently fold it in to smooth out the texture

When you’ve reached the right consistency, remove ½ cup of the whipped mixture before continuing with the mango mousse recipe.
