Melon and Mango Mousse with Fruit Platter

Serves 6-8
A delicious traditional South African summer dessert. We love mangoes! Serve it in a pretty glass bowl on crushed ice, surrounded by fresh fruit.

You will need

½ sweet melon, pips removed
1 large ripe mango, peeled and flesh cut away
1 x 250 g Ina Paarman’s Lemon Flavour Cheesecake Mix
1 cup (250 ml) coconut milk
1 cup (250 ml) whipping cream

2 kg ice, crushed
½ sweet melon, pipped and cut into wedges
1 mango, cut into slices
500 g green grapes
250 g red grapes

Ina's Tip

The mousse will also freeze very successfully to make a refreshing fruit ice cream. Remove from the freezer to the fridge, half an hour before serving to soften a little.

Method

Scoop out the melon flesh into a processor. Add the mango, Cheesecake Mix and coconut milk. Blend until smooth.

Whip the cream and fold the fruit mixture into the whipped cream. Dish into a glass bowl. Cover and refrigerate.

Present the mousse in its glass bowl on ice surrounded by melon slices, sliced mango and bunches of grapes.
