Mango mousse

Summertime brings about so many thirst quenching, massively sweet and refreshing fruits. My favourite of all the summer fruit is Mango!!! Sometimes I end up over purchasing but instead of allowing them to turn bad, I turn them into fancy desserts.

With only 5 ingredients used, I present you this perfectly light and airy mango mousse!!
