Simple No Bake Mango Mousse Cake

By Amy // Posted  Mar 17, 2021 // Category No Bake

My Simple No Bake Mango Mousse Cake is creamy and smooth with a delicious biscuit base. The sweetness of the fresh mangoes compliments the creamy mango mousse perfectly. 

The cake was gone after a few days. I don’t usually eat too much of what I make but this cake was an exception. 

I love having a consistent no bake recipe that turns out well each time! This is one you are going to want to favourite.

1. CRUSHING COOKIES

The easiest way to crush cookies would be to use a food processor to blitz them into fine crumbs. I sometimes use blenders as well, it takes longer but it still helps you get finer crumbs.

You can always do it manually as well. Put the cookies into the large ziplock bag and crush it with a rolling pin. I’ve recently started using a muddler you make cocktails with as a crushing implement and it’s worked really well as well.

2. Adjust the sweetness to your liking

You add the sugar when making your mango puree. This mango mousse isn’t that sweet. I liked it that way as the fresh mangoes provided the added sweetness. However, if you prefer a sweeter mousse, I would say adding an extra quarter cup of sugar would be perfect. 

3. Whipping cream to firm peaks

When you whip cream, it is important to make sure the cream and the bowl you are whipping the cream in are very cold. This ensures your cream whips correctly so that you can achieve good volume and texture in your whipped cream.

Stiff peaks mean that the cream stands up on its own when the beaters are lifted. Be careful not to over beat as it can lead to your cream turning grainy and also it may split your cream. 

4. Don’t overmix your mousse

In the final stage of making the mousse, you need to fold the whipped cream into the puree. It is very important to not overmix as you will lose the airiness of your mousse. Fold gently while scrapping the sides and bottom of the bowl, then stop as soon the puree and cream have come together.
