How common is it that you come across dessert recipes with less than five ingredients? At Simple Sumptuous Cooking, it is not that uncommon and today's Vegan Mango Mousse is a good example.
This mango mousse recipe is vegan-friendly, calorie friendly, and tastes friendly too!
I did not have to use any gelatin or agar-agar for this recipe and I nearly finished without any added sweetness, but the mangoes turned out to be sourer than I imagined.
So I had to add a little bit of sweetener (Agave Syrup) to finish it off.
Mango Mousses are typically made with whipped white eggs. Apart from the cruelty it brings, that is a lot of animal-based cholesterol.
Enough to negate all the workouts you had done in the past couple of days! So, try this vegan version with much less saturated fat from coconut cream than the non-vegan version.
Preparing it cannot be any easier. Just be sure to refrigerate the coconut milk ahead of time and use just the cream that settles on the top instead of the entire can of coconut milk.
You will need 2 cans of coconut milk to get 1½ to 2 cups of coconut cream. When you are done, just refrigerate them for a couple of hours or more to get a denser consistency and texture.

- If the mangoes are sweet, you can skip the sugar! My mangoes were a little sour, so I added agave syrup.
- Just be sure to refrigerate the coconut milk ahead of time and use just the cream that settles on the top instead of the entire can of coconut milk. You will need 2 cans of coconut milk to get 1½ to 2 cups of coconut cream. When you are done, just refrigerate them for a couple of hours or more to get a denser consistency and texture.
YOUR OWN NOTES
Nutritional information is an estimation only.
A bit confused by your comment about egg whites and cholesterol. I don't believe egg whites have cholesterol--that would be the egg yolk. Thanks!
can we use another fruit to make this recipe such as pineapple
Hi Hayet! I am not sure about pineapple in the mousse recipe. Sorry! if tried it please let me know how it turned out. Thanks
Hi! Thanks for this easy mango mousse recipe Can i use Coconut milk powder instead of the coconut cream?
Hi Mukta. Thank you
I dont recommend you using coconut milk powder instead of coconut milk or cream. You need a creamy texture to make the mousse.
This is my daughters all time favorite dessert now, do you think other fruit can be used?
Hi, Yes you can make this with other fruits too :)Hope your daughter will enjoy it!
It doesn’t work . My mouse is soup .
Many readers tried this recipe. It always works. Sorry to hear that it doesn’t work for you. Did you followed all the steps?
You might have missed this part:

its so yummy 🙂 please can you share some more vegan recipe with me , e-mail ; email@example.com
thanks a lot for your yummy mango mousse,
I have this huge mango tree in the yard where I will be staying for the next seven months. they are turning ripe now….thanks for the suggested recipes
Do you mash with a fork and then whip with a whisk or are you using a blender?
I mashed ripe mangoes then whipped with coconut cream. You can use the blender for whole process. 🙂 Good luck. Thank you!
Can i put everything in my vitamix and blend it or does it have to be whisked?
Hi, yes like you said you can blend it in vitamin. But please make sure it’s thick enough, otherwise it won’t set in fridge. Thank you:) Good luck!
If you are vegan for animal cruelty reasons, by all means, this is a great recipe, but please don’t spread false information on nutrition. Egg whites are cholesterol free and contain .01g of fat and no saturated fat. It also provides 7% of daily value of protein at only 17 calories per egg.
Coconut cream on the other hand is 49 calories per TEASPOON, with 5g of fat, 4.6 is saturated fat, which is 22% of your daily value. While it does provide potassium (1%) it only has .5g of protein. Unless you can’t or don’t eat eggs, this is not a nutritionally wise substitute.
Thank you Kris. I am vegan for ethics reason.
I agree that egg whites are less fat than coconut cream. But I am not only talking about egg whites, non vegan version includes milk fat and milk cream too.
To be on safe side, can we use canned mango puree to make this moose?
Hi Vicki! Canned purée will be very liquid compare to fresh mango pulp. You have to add more creamy and thick coconut cream and powdered sugar to get mousse consistency. Or else add 2 tbsp almond powder. Please let me know your final outcome. It’s very easy and delicious. Thank you 😊
Looks really good. I am a big mango fan. I have tried mango coconut ice cream in the past and loved the flavour combination. Lovely share...
