Halal Mango Mousse
Makes approximately 4 cups of mousse


  • 1 can of mango pulp (Ratna Brand)
  • 1 cup heavy cream (for mango pulp)
  • 2 tbsp of mango flavoured gelatine
  • ¼ cup of water (for gelatine)
  • 2 ½ cups heavy cream (for whipping cream)


Mix 1 can of mango pulp and 1 cup of heavy cream in a bowl. Sprinkle 2 tbsp
of mango gelatine with ¼ of water in a heat proof bowl; heat mixture over a
saucepan over simmering water. (This allows the mixture to cool faster than
if you heat mixture in a pan) Once the gelatine is cool to touch mix it
well with mango puree.

Whip 2 ½ cups of heavy cream till soft peaks, add into mango mixture and
gently fold the whipped cream.

Pour into dessert cups or large bowl and let set in fridge for 4 hours or

Mango Jello Topping (optional):

Mix 1 package of mango gelatine (follow measurements on the box); mix
powder and water in a heat proof bowl and heat over simmering water. Let
crystals dissolve completely.

Once jello is cool to touch, remove mousse from fridge and pour jello over
mouse and return to refrigerator for a few more hours. Serve chilled

  • Salam,
    I am a new reader of your blog and love it. Thank you for taking the time to share your reviews and recipes.

    May I know where you found halal gelatin?

    • Salam!

      I found it at my local halal grocery store. Bombay Bazaar on 14th and Kennedy…If you go into any south asian or arabic grocery store and ask for halal jello they will direct you to it.

      I hope that helps!

    Wa alykum salaam,

    I’ve asked Samera to help us as well but I usually find halal jello (gelatin) at my local halal grocery shop – here’s my favourite brand:

    Depending on where you live, it may or may not be available — but good to ask around.

    Great question! Thanks for leaving a comment 🙂

  • Salam Samera,

    What is heavy cream? Which did you use? is 35% cream ok or dream whip?
