Mango, “the king of fruit”, is a tropical fruit chock full of health benefits.  High in fiber and antioxidants, research has shown eating this unique tasting fruit can help prevent cancer and lower serum cholesterol.  Its high levels of Vitamins C and A, and other nutrients helps clear skin, promotes healthy vision, and boosts the immunity.  A mango a day may keep the doctor away.

Everyone in our family loves mangos.  We eat it fresh, as smoothies, and use it as the main ingredient for many of our favorite recipes. 

Here’s a quick and easy mango recipe that requires 4 ingredients, a blender, and a mixer.  It’s a light refreshing treat for hot summer days, or served in glass goblets an elegant dessert for your dinner party.

Ingredients:

2 cups ripe mango (about 3-4 mangos)

1 cup heavy whipping cream

½ cup sweetened condense milk

1 tbsp. lime juice

 

Directions:

Peel and slice mangos. 

Place mango pieces into blender and puree until smooth

Add lime juice and set aside

Whip heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form.

Slowly add condensed milk

Reserve ½ cup of mango puree.  Gently fold in remaining puree to the cream mixture.

Scoop into cups or bowls.  Spread a thin layer of the reserved puree on top of each mousse.

Garnish with mint leaves and fresh sliced strawberries, small blueberries, or raspberries if desired.

Refrigerate before serving.

*I recommend using a cold mixing bowl and whisk attachment for whipping cream.  I refrigerate both items until I’m ready to use them.
