Mango Mousse

The summer is here and so are the mangoes. The streets are beginning to look all yellow with vendors piling up mangoes everywhere and small boys carrying baskets of mangoes to your car hoping to make some money. Its a perfect sight during a hot summer day. I got a batch of the seasons first mangoes and been thinking of doing something special with it. Panna Cotta would have been my first option but i had already done that in a previous post. So my next best option was this smooth creamy Mango Mousse and it was extra special as i made it specially for my younger sister and brother in law visiting us on a holiday. 

You will need:
Ripe Mango Skinned and De-seeded - 250 gms
Powdered Sugar - 100 gms
Lemon Juice - 1/4 cup
Egg Whites - 2
Cold Fresh Cream - 1 cup
Gelatin - 2 1/2 tsp

Blend the mangoes and the powdered sugar together and strain to remove to get a smooth mixture.
Soak the Gelatin in 2 tbsp of water.
Heat 1/4 cup of mango mixture and stir in the soaked gelatin until it melts.
Meanwhile, whip the eggs whites to achieve stiff peaks.
In another bowl, whip the fresh cream over a bowl of ice until its nice and fluffy.
Carefully fold the egg white mixture into the mango puree until combined.
Lastly, fold the whipped cream very gently into the mixture.
Spoon into your serving glasses and chill for a few hours until set.
