Here's a luscious dessert that needs no cooking apart from a scant 30 seconds in the microwave. Enjoy!
Fresh Mango Mousse
2 teaspoons (5 g) powdered gelatin
1/4 cup (60 ml) water
1/3 (80 g) cup cream
2 tablespoons (30 g) sugar
1 (200 g) fresh mango, pureed
1/2 (100 g) fresh mango
1 tablespoon (15 g) sugar
2 teaspoons (10 ml) lemon juice
2 teaspoons (10 ml) white wine
Mix the gelatin and water in a small microwave-safe container. Set aside.
Beat the cream and sugar until soft peaks form.
Place the gelatin/water mix in the microwave and zap for 30 seconds.
Add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Gradually add the pureed mango and mix well. Finally fold in the whipped cream. Divide the mousse evenly into 2 dessert cups.
For the topping, simply puree the mango together with the sugar, lemon juice and wine. Puree it well to break up the stringy strands of mango. Spoon over the mousse. Chill until set.
