Ingredients

2 tbsp water 30 mL
1/2 tbsp gelatin 3 g
1 mangoes 300 g
2 tbsp sugar 24 g
1/4 tsp vanilla extract 1.25 mL
1/2 cup yogurt, plain, 2% 130 g
1/2 cup whipping cream 35% 125 mL
12 leaves fresh mint [optional] 4 g

Before you start

A blender and a mixer will be very useful for this recipe.

Method

  1. Pour the water into a small saucepan, then add the gelatine. Place the saucepan over low heat and stir until the gelatine dissolves, 1-2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.
  2. Peel the mangoes, cut the flesh from the pits, then transfer the flesh to a blender. Add the sugar and the vanilla extract, then process until smooth. Add the dissolved gelatine and continue to process for one more minute. Transfer the mango purée to a bowl, then add the yogurt and mix well.
  3. Pour the whipping cream into a separate bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat the cream until it holds stiff peaks, then fold it gently into the mango purée. Portion out the mixture into cups and chill them for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  4. Garnish with mint leaves (optional) and serve.

I just want to note that as this recipe contains gelatine it is definitely NOT vegetarian, and shouldn't be served to veggie guests.

I enjoyed this, but it would have been twice as good with a little dribble of lime syrup.

We thought this was absolutely excellent. I used more whipped cream than called for because sometimes the taste of mango can be very strong. I will use this recipe for different fruits as well in the future. I bet it would be great with berries or bananas. edit - I tried it with bananas and it was fabulous!
