Mango mousse with strawberries and lime zest

Mango mousse with strawberries and lime zest on Flickr by beFOODled.

This is the recipe for the rich and delicious mango mousse that Em brought to our party. She chilled the mousse in a bowl and then piped it into wanton soup spoons at our place. We then topped them with slivers of strawberry and mango and a sprinkling of lime zest. DV did all of the zesting, and exquisitely, too ;)

Mango Mousse

Half a can of mango pulp (10 oz)
1 small package of mango, lemon or orange Jello
1 1/2 package gelatin
2 cups water
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup whipped cream
1 cup milk or soy milk

Boil water. Put gelatin in a cup, add three tablespoons of hot water and stir to fully melt the gelatin. Stir in gelatin, Jello and sugar into the hot water. Add the remaining ingredients after the Jello has melted. Chill in a pan, wine glasses, etc. Serve when set.

You can cut back on the sugar by using less, or eliminate it completely and add more mango pulp.
