This eggless saffron mango mousse is easy to make , delicious and 100% vegetarian/vegan! Yesss…and i must thank Elodia my dearest friend for making this and sending me the pic and recipe. She used very ripe fresh mangoes and lactose free cream but you can use canned mango pulp or normal cream. She said the taste was awesome and imagine making a gelatine free mousse! Its light because you are using lactose free milk.. Just be sure to chill it well . So here is the recipe. The mangoes are courtesy another friend Dipa Mots of Malaga who sent them to Elodia…the beauty of facebook…making and connecting us all together
3 big juicy ripe mangoes,cut into cubes
100 ml of Provamel Lactose free cream or any whipping cream
a few strands of Nitu Didi pure spanish saffron
a little sugar to taste if necessary
a few chopped pistachios for decoration
Put the cubed mangoes into the blender with the saffron and pulse till blended (we used our amazing bullet).
Mix with the lactose free cream or the whipping cream till well mixed.
Taste and if you need some sugar add some powdered sugar ( i say this because it all depends on the quality of the mangoes and their sweetness. If your mangoes have too much fibre in them try to use a quality that does not have that much fibre. What i love using is “kesari alphonso pulp” available at most desi supermarkets….
Put into fancy glasses and refrigerate till chilled. Top with chopped pistachios and serve.
Simple isnt it??????????
Thank you Elodia for the recipe and Dipa for the mangoes… For vegan recipe you can use soya cream or dairy free cream

HEALTH BENEFITS OF MANGOES
1. Prevents Cancer:
Research has shown antioxidant compounds in mango fruit have been found to protect against colon, breast, leukemia and prostate cancers. These compounds include quercetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid and methylgallat, as well as the abundant enzymes.
2. Lowers Cholesterol:
The high levels of fiber, pectin and vitamin C help to lower serum cholesterol levels, specifically Low-Density Lipoprotein (the bad stuff)
