Mango Mousse ...made easy!

This is a truly 'Yum' dessert we have all loved.
True to its name its a mousse you can use as pie filling or on a wafer base.
But at our table we love eating it just like that!
Scoop after scoop!

Heres what went into making mine:
1/4oz Flavorless gelatin ( jello) powder
1/2 cup cold water
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup sugar

 4oz plain cream cheese
4oz whipped topping ( cool whip)
15oz(1/2 can) mango pulp
1/2 cup sugar

How I make it:

Firstly I make the jello by soaking the 1/4 oz flavorless gelatin powder in 1/2 cup cold water.
To this add 1 cup boiling water and the 1/2 cup sugar.
Mix n refrigerate until jellies.
Yields about 4oz of jelly.

Now for the Mousse:
In a blender add the 4oz of jelly and 4oz plain cream cheese.
To this add the 4oz whipped topping ( cool whip)  with the 15oz(1/2 can) mango pulp and 1/2 cup sugar. Blend well and refrigerate until jelly like.

Serve cold!

We love this just like that but can be used as topping over icecream or pies!
Mango pulp can be replaced by any fruit of choice! Thinking strawberries?!

Yummy truly.
Tell me how yours turns out.
Bon Appetite.
