Mango Coffee Mousse- Easy Mousse Recipe

Mango and coffee in harmony and made into a light, fluffy & feathery mousse…

I got thrilled when I found all the ingredients in my refrigerator for making one of the easiest yet delicious dessert: mousse. The next thought I had was what kind of mousse should I make. One of the classic mousse combos is coffee & chocolate aka mocha. I was up for trying something different and started whipping up mango & coffee mousse. I was curious about the taste, it did sound weird to me. That didn’t stop me from trying though. Whipped up cream cheese, instant coffee, whipping cream & mango puree; allowed it to chill in the refrigerator for an hour. After an hour, I literally rushed to have a taste of this unique mousse combination.

I’m a coffee freak, hence I loved the flavor of coffee in this mousse. The coffee flavor stood out in this mousse. As I enjoyed the mousse, the bite of mango felt refreshing to my taste buds. Trust me, it wasn’t weird at all. I made sure to not overpower this mousse with mango flavor. The subtle taste of mango along with the mesmerizing coffee, this mousse has turned into my favorite.
