Notes

Canned mango puree can be used to make this mousse, or you can mango puree using fresh mangoes. To make mango puree, cut mangoes into cubes and place into a blender. Pulse for a few seconds till a puree is formed. The sweetness of the mango puree will depend on the ripeness and variety of mango used. If mango puree is on the sweet side, you can reduce the amount of sugar used and vice versa.
