Make this magnificent mango mousse immediately!

prep time 5-10 mins total time 2 hours serves 6-8


  • Coconut cream from 400ml tin of coconut milk*

  • 1 cup of mango purée

  • Juice of a lime

  • Mint for garnish



  1. Carefully take out the coconut cream from the top of the tin of coconut milk, leaving behind the water (this can be added to a smoothie or a curry), and add to a blender.

  2. Add in the mango purée and the juice of a lime, and blend.

  3. Give it a stir to remove any air bubbles and spoon into 6-8 small cups.

  4. Spoon a teaspoon of mango purée on top of each mousse, and garnish with a sprig of mint.

  5. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours to set the mousse and then serve!


  • If you can’t find mango purée in the shops, you can easily make it by blending some mango (frozen or otherwise), with a little bit of water if needed.

  • Make sure to save the coconut water from the tins and use in another recipe later on! Would work best in a smoothie or juice.

  • Try and opt for a more expensive tin of coconut milk - one that has the highest percentage of coconut to get that creamy part.
