Mango Yogurt Mousse

These simple, creamy yogurt desserts highlight mangos and can be made in 20 minutes. A great make-ahead dessert that I love to serve after Chinese New Year dinner.

  • 1 envelope (1 tablespoon) unflavored gelatin
  • 2 cups fresh mango purée (about 2 peeled and pitted mangoes) plus mango slices for garnish
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup well-chilled heavy cream


  • In a small saucepan sprinkle the gelatin over 1/4 cup cold water, let it soften for 1 minute, and heat the mixture over low heat, stirring, until the gelatin is dissolved. In a blender blend together the mango purée, the sugar, and the vanilla, add the gelatin mixture, and blend the mixture well. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the yogurt. In a chilled bowl beat the cream until it holds stiff peaks, fold it into the mango mixture gently but thoroughly, and divide the mousse among 6 dessert glasses. Chill the mousses for at least 4 hours or overnight. Garnish the mousses with the mango slices.
