If you have been following our blog, you already know that Brazilians love anything made with condensed milk. I am no exception. You might have tried our Passion Fruit Mousse and we would like to show you how with the same base you can create any other fruit mousses just as easily. Brazilian style of course, with condensed milk and a tropical flair.

We had a large mango tree in our back yard. It seemed to me that it was always full of fruits, so much so that our neighbor devised a contraption with a can on a long stick to try to steal them whenever they were ripe. When we did not eat them right off the tree my mother would transform them into this smooth and velvety mousse that would disappear just as fast as the fruits.

You will need:

  1. You will need: 2 large mangoes and enough water to make a thick pulp (aprox. 1 cup)
  2. 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  3. 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  4. 1 envelope of unflavored gelatin
  5. 4 tablespoons of water to dissolve the gelatin
  6. juice of 2 lemons
  7. Mango slices and mint leaves for garnish

Preparation:

For the mango pulp:

  1. Peel the mangoes and cut them in pieces.
  2. Put them in the blender with enough water to make them into a cream
  3. Strain the mango pulp through a sieve to get a smooth texture.
