Mango Mousse - EASY!


This recipe is from Jo and Sue. I actually drove to the grocery store to  pick up peach baby food the day I found the recipe. Carol and Cyndy and I were planning peach week and I wanted to add the recipe.

I found the baby food isle and then realized no reading glasses! I couldn't see or find a jar of peach and had to ask someone to find one for me. As soon as I got home  I added the yogurt and the cool whip and WOW- it's fantastic. It never made peach week, I ate the whole thing!

Mango's were on sale and I knew it would be delicious in the  mousse.


Bonus it's easy!    You can enjoy it any time of the day.

Ingredients for the Basic Mousse:

1/2 cup plain Greek Yogurt

1/2 cup cool whip

For the Mango Mousse

1 ripe mango- peeled and chopped in the food processor


Directions:

Place the mango in the food processor and puree.

Add the yogurt and pulse a few times

Place the mango/yogurt mixture in a medium size bowl and gently fold in the cool whip.

Please check out 2 Ingredient Mousse (with a bazillion alternatives) from Jo and Sue. I also made the Funfetti Greek Yogurt Mousse, which was yummy.

    1. Cape Coral is south of us in Florida and now sure if we can grow mango's. Tell your Mom I'm jealous. Does she have one tree or a few?
