These Mango Mousse Cups are just awesome. They were made from extra ingredients from my Cubed Mango Mousse Cake. Hence, I made these Mango Mousse Cups. Dainty, refreshing, cheery.. what's there not to love? For these mango mousse cups.. they're pretty simple to prepare but the use of a food processor or blender is required.. else the mousse will not be a mousse. Other wise, it's pretty effortless and not to mention tasty as a snack, especially for summer! (:
For mangoes, I like using Indian mangoes. They're usually sweet as compare to Thai Honey mangoes which may even be sour instead of being sweet. I like buying Indian mangoes that are slightly green with a tinge of yellow the day before I use them. That way, they are firm enough when eaten without being too soft unlike those yellow mangoes which are way too ripe! (:

Mango Mousse Cups Recipe
The recipe yields 6 mini jars
1 Indian mango
80g whipped cream
70 - 80g fresh mango puree (About 1/2 Indian mango)
4g gelatin powder (If using Bake King which is weaker, use 12g instead)
1 tbsp water
Blend the mangoes! This gives us tasty fresh mango puree! You may choose to use store bought mango puree from Phoon Huat and such but they're much sweeter. However, if you wanna prepare mousse with love, why not go the extra mile and use fresh mangoes? (:
The blended puree! Make sure that it's all blended!
Dice up the mangoes! ((:
(Ignore the figures!) Weigh your gelatin.
Add water and allow gelatin to 'soak' up the water before double boiling it till all the gelatin powder is dissolved.
Whisk up the whipped cream till stiff peaks form.
Add the mango puree and gelatin mixture. Mix well. Chill in freezer for 10 minutes before use.
Scoop mousse into piping bag and pipe a 1/4 of the cup with mousse before layered with a layer of mango. Pipe in another layer of mousse and layer with another layer of mango.
When storing the Mango Mousse Cups, do cover them with the lid to prevent the top layer of mangoes from drying out. Alternatively, you can prepare a fruit glaze using the glaze in Cubed Mango Mousse Cake if you intend to let the mousse cups be exposed to air before eating. (:
Enjoy these Mango Mousse Cups as much as I did! (:
