Warm Mango Kulfi Mousse with Dark Chocolate Drizzle

When I saw organic ripe mangos at Nature's Emporium last weekend, I knew precisely what to do with them!

This mousse is my twist on a traditional ice cream dessert originating in India. I once made it years ago, pre-paleo, for my mother's birthday, and we all really enjoyed it. This primal, and warmed version has a very gentle, mild taste with just a hint of sweetness and spice. The chocolate drizzle completes it!

I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as we do.

Love,

Barbara

TIME: 25 min

SERVES: 3-4

INGREDIENTS:

3 mangos, chopped

5 tbsp grassfed butter (or coconut oil)

1/2 cup organic whipping cream (or guar gum free coconut milk)

1 1/2 tsp ground vanilla bean powder

1/8-1/4 tsp ground cloves (to taste, I usually prefer more cloves)

1 1/2 tbsp raw organic honey

For drizzle:

1/4 cup chocolate chips (dairy, soy, nut free)

1/2 tsp coconut oil

PROCESS:

1. Peel and chop all mangos.

2. In a large pan, melt butter on med heat, and when melted, add mango and cream.

3. Stir thoroughly, and allow to come to a boil. 

4. Cook on med-high heat for 20 min, stirring periodically to prevent it from sticking to the bottom - the mangos will begin to disintegrate into a cream.

5. Remove from heat, and transfer mousse to a blender or food processor, and blend until smooth.

6. On a double boiler, add the chocolate chips and coconout oil, and allow to melt completely.

7. Serve the mousse warm, and drizzle the melted chocolate overtop.
