Eggless Mango Mousse with fruits; Fiesta Friday Anniversary Special!!



I wanted to be here bright and early for the anniversary gala at Fiesta Friday, week 2!!  JudiMollieSteffiand Suzanne, have been working hard all weekIt is also the NEW YEAR!! Happy New Year to all of you my dear blogger friends!This time I have brought you all a light and fluffy, melt-in-the-mouth, loaded with fruits dessert! I cannot make cream-art but tried to write a message for this event.


This dessert is the result of modification of my good friend Sarika's recipe. I loaded her recipe with tons of fresh fruits to make it relatively healthy and renamed it! You can find the original recipe here.


This is a dessert that would appeal to all age-groups, vegetarians and those who observe gluten-free diet or are allergic to nuts. Kids would love it! It is a great way to get kids to eat fresh fruits ! This is a very simple recipe that can be made the previous night of the party. It only has 4 main ingredients.Basically, I took equal quantities of whipping cream, mango pulp and fruits and half the quantity of powdered sugar.You whip the cream and the powdered sugar and then add the mango pulp and whip it. Lastly fold in the fruits of your choice! Voila!! A beautiful dessert is ready!!



Servings: 8-10 ( 1 cup per person)


Ingredients:


Mango pulp: 1 cup ( room temperature).
Whipping/heavy cream: 1 cup
Powdered sugar: 1/2 cup
Canned fruits in juice: one 8 oz can
Plum: 1, peeled and diced
Peach: 1, peeled and diced
Strawberries: 8-10, washed and sliced into 2.
Raspberries: 8-10
Blackberry: 1
Clementines/mandarins: 4-5, peeled and sections separated.


Method:


Chill the bowl and beaters into which you are going to whip the cream in the freezer for 15 mins .

Drain the canned fruits and keep aside.

Using a hand-blender, whip the cream until soft peaks start to appear, around 4-5 minutes.Do not over whip.



Now add the powdered sugar and mix on low.




Fold in the mango pulp.


Add in the drained fruits and fresh cut fruits.




Decorate using berries as you wish.

Serve chilled!



Enjoy! Happy New Year Everyone!! I am not only bringing this to Fiesta Friday but also to Throwback Thursdays.


Cooking made easy:


You can make this dish using all fresh fruits making it even more healthier!
You can use your choice of fruits based on availability and individual preference.

It is recommended to eat 4-5 servings of fruits per day. This provides with the much needed essential vitamins,  minerals and dietary fiber!!
