Mango and Lemon Mousse

A true celebration of summer! Its refreshingly awesome and a must try to bea the heat! A citrus punch with a blast of mango sweetness that revitalized your senses. Mouthwatering? it is..

Things you will need:

-2 ripe fresh mangoes peeled and stoned
-50gms castor sugar
-juice of 1 lemon
-150 ml double whipping cream
-2 egg whites


Sprinkle the gelatin over the lemon juice in a small heatproof bowl, then leave until spongy. Stand the bowl in a pan of hot water and heat gently until the gelatin has dissoloved, stirring ocassionally. Leave to cool completely.

Meanwhile, put the mango flesh and castor sugar in a liquidizer and blend to a smooth pur'ee. Stir the cooled gelatin liquid into the mango pur'ee, then leave the mixture until just beginning to set.

Whip the cream until it just holds its shape, then fold into the pur'ee. Beat the egg whites until stiff, then fold in until evenly blended. Chill in the refrigerator overnight until set.

To serve: Loosen the edge of the mousse with a sharp knife, then turn the mousse out to a serving plate.
Serve Chilled!

Fresh peaches may be used instead of mangoes, although the flavor will not be quite so distinctive. You will need 4-6 peaches to make up the required weight.
