Vegan Mango Mousse

Vegan mango mousse is surprisingly simple, but elegant, sweet, and rich in flavor. Made with fresh mangoes and coconut cream, this is a dessert that will delight guests and family, too. In ten minutes, you can have this made and chilling in the fridge.

I don’t have much experience with coconut cream, but I found it easy to work with. It whips up pretty quickly with a whisk and then really gains thickness after beingvegan mango mousse blended. For the initial whipping of the cream, I used a whisk attached to my immersion blender and whisked for just a minute or two. I wasn’t happy with the thickening at that point, so used the blender, too. I think the combination of the two is perfect for this recipe.

If you are able to find canned coconut cream, that is what you want for this recipe. Each 13- to 14-ounce can will give you 1-1/2 cups of cream. If you can only find coconut milk in your market, you will probably need two cans, so you can remove and use only the cream part from each can (the white stuff). Either way, you want 1-1/2 to 2 cups of coconut cream.

Your mousse might still seem too runny after blending, but just remember that it thickens upon chilling. By the time mine was chilled, it was perfectly set and didn’t move when I tipped the glasses from side to side. It’s a mousse!

You can top these delicious treats with your favorite nuts, cut up fruit, or shaved chocolate. I serve mine with shaved chocolate and I really love that flavor combination.

I’ve settled on four servings with this recipe, because it’s very rich and sweet. Two people can eat this entire recipe – it’s up to you! With guests and another side dessert like a slice of cake or a cookie, I would use this to serve four people.
