This tropical coconut mango mousse will take you to the tropics with the creamy coconut mousse and sweet mango infusion.
Happy Monday friends! I have a tropical recipe for you today. I am excited!! These coconut mango mousse cups are an easy no-bake dessert for your summer and they are SO easy to whip up. Filled with a cream cheese sweet coconut mousse, it is infused with fresh mango puree. It’s pure magical and filled with tropical flavors.
Even though we are not having the warmest summer, I love no bake mousse desserts. They are perfect for the summer gatherings that are always on the go. They always feed a crowd and easy to transport. My favorites so far have been this white chocolate raspberry mousse, mango kiwi mousse and coconut mascarpone mousse. Although, I am thinking this tropical coconut mango mousse is blowing them out of the window.
I added cream cheese to the mousse this time around and it makes the mousse creamier and adds a tangy flavor. The mousse is infused with fresh mango puree and coconut cream. It’s important you use ripe sweet mangoes to make your puree, otherwise you will be adding a little sour-tangy taste that could throw off the recipe.
I’m keeping it short today as it is a long holiday weekend. But if you need a last minute dessert for the holiday, whip up this mousse today. All you need is 30 minutes 🙂
