  • 1 cup heavy cream 35%MF at least
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups mango ripe, cubed
  • 1 envelope powdered gelatin 1/4 oz, or 2 1/2 tsp
  • 1/4 cup mango juice or water*


  • Beat the heavy cream in a mixing bowl until stiff peaks form. Use a rubber spatula to fold the condensed milk into the cream until well combined.
  • Pour the mango juice (or water) into a small microwave-safe bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin powder evenly over the surface of the water. Allow it to sit for 3-5 minutes, until spongy. Microwave at 10-second intervals, until liquid. Mix with a fork to ensure the gelatin has dissolved completely.
  • Add the mango cubes to a blender and blend until smooth with no lumps, about 1 minute. Add the dissolved gelatin to the pureed mango and blend for another 30 seconds to 1 minute, until very well combined.
  • Pour the mango puree into the mixing bowl of cream. Gently fold the mixture together with the rubber spatula until uniform in color. Pour the mixture into 4 rocks glasses or glass dessert cups. Cover each glass with plastic and allow the mousse to set in the fridge for at least 4 hours, or overnight.


*If you use juice, make sure it isn't acidic like orange, pineapple, or grapefruit. This will impact how the gelatin sets.
I served my mousse with a dollop of freshly whipped cream and diced mango.
Want to dry different flavors? Try adding 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 tsp ground cardamom, or a few strands of saffron to the blender in step 3.
