Mango Raspberry Mousse

Mango Raspberry Mousse

It was my hubby’s  birthday. I wanted to throw him a nice surprise party and I decided to make all the desserts for the party. This was one of the desserts I made and it turned out really well. After all the heavy Indian food, this dessert was perfect to wash it all down. Very refreshing taste to welcome the spring season. An all time favorite among kids. You must give this dessert a try especially when it is so effortless to make it.

1 tin Mango Puree
1 packet of Peach Jello
1 packet of Raspberry Jello
½ cup water
¼ cup sugar
500 ml whipping cream
15 strawberries
15 maraschino cherries or fresh cherries

Heat Mango Puree with half cup water on slow flame. When it is slightly hot, add the peach jello and raspberry jello powder to the mango mixture and stir well. Also add in the sugar and stir till everything is dissolved well and no lumps are formed. Let this cool down to room temperature.

In the meanwhile, take 500 ml of whipping cream and whip it well with a beater or hand whip till it forms soft peaks. Fold the whipping cream in to the mango mixture. Use cut and fold method until everything is well incorporated.

Now, take a trifle bowl. At the bottom of the bowl, add freshly cut strawberries. On top of it pour the mango mousse mixture. Let this set in the refrigerator overnight. Just before serving, garnish it with fresh cherries or maraschino cherries. Serve chilled.
