Mango Mousse


I made this dessert for Thanksgiving so we would have something light and different from the normal Thanksgiving desserts.  It was a lovely change of flavor and very welcome after a heavy meal.  My kids loved this dessert because it was creamy and full of that mango flavor they enjoy.  What I loved best was it only took me five minutes to put together. 

Ingredients:
1 package (8oz) cream cheese (low fat version is fine)
2 packages of vanilla pudding (3oz box) (instant)
1 tub of cool whip
1 32 oz can of mango puree (available in Indian Grocery Stores)

fresh sliced mango for garnish (optional)








Directions: 
Use a electric mixer and blend the cream cheese (that has been brought up to room temp) until well whipped. Then add the vanilla pudding powder (do not add milk to the pudding) and can of mango puree.  Once these ingredients are well blended, gently fold in the cool whip by hand. Then refrigerate overnight to set. 

** If you taste the dessert and it is not sweet enough with the sugar from the pudding, puree and cool whip you may want to add some more sugar during the initial blending process. I find the sugar from the pudding and cool whip to be sweet enough for the over all dish.




Decorate with fresh mango and whipped cream if you desire. 

PS... as you can see I have two pictures from two different occasions that I made this dessert because it's a family favorite.

  2. That looks fantastic. All it needs is a little paper umbrella in it and I'd feel like I was in the tropics! I don't know that I've ever seen mango puree though (not that I couldn't just puree a mango myself, eh?).
