Description of Mango Fool Recipe:
Mango fool, also known as mango cream, is a classic English dessert that is perfect for summer. It is made using fresh ripe mangoes, whipped cream and sugar. The dessert is incredibly easy to make and can be enjoyed by everyone. It is a light dessert that you can serve after dinner or have as a snack during the day.
- 2 cups fresh mango puree
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp ground cardamom (optional)
- 4-5 mint leaves (for garnish)
Step 1: Prepare the Mango Puree
Start by peeling and chopping the ripe mangoes. Cut off the cheeks of the mango and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh. Add the mango pieces to a blender and puree until smooth. Measure out 2 cups of mango puree and set it aside.
Step 2: Whip the Cream
In a large bowl, combine the heavy cream, sugar, vanilla extract and ground cardamom (if using). Use a hand mixer or a stand mixer to whip the mixture until it forms stiff peaks. Be careful not to over whip the cream, or it will turn into butter.
Step 3: Fold in the Mango Puree
Add the mango puree to the whipped cream and gently fold it in using a spatula. Keep folding until the mango puree is evenly distributed throughout the whipped cream.
Step 4: Chill and Serve
Transfer the mango fool mixture to a serving bowl. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours to allow the flavors to meld together. When ready to serve, remove the mango fool from the fridge and give it a stir before spooning it into individual serving bowls. Garnish with fresh mint leaves and serve immediately.
- Use ripe mangoes for the best flavor and texture. The mangoes should be soft to the touch and have a sweet aroma.
- To make the mango puree, you can use a blender or a food processor. Just make sure that the puree is smooth and free of lumps.
- Be gentle when folding in the mango puree, so that the air in the whipped cream doesn’t deflate.
- Don’t prepare the mango fool too far in advance, or the whipped cream may lose its texture and become runny.
Mango fool is a simple yet delicious dessert that is perfect for anyone who loves mangoes. It is quick to make, and the combination of sweet mango and creamy whipped cream is truly irresistible. Serve it on a hot summer day, and your guests will be sure to love it!
