Honey lime mousse with mango

Honey Lime Mousse with Mangos!

Posted by Whendi Grad on

This refreshing, delectable treat is a perfect union of tartness, sweetness, and creaminess. Despite the many steps in the directions, this mousse is extremely easy to prepare. I make it in two steps. First, I make a honey-lime curd. This is the quickest curd recipe and incredibly delicious. It is so good; you may be tempted to simply stop after this step and enjoy the curd as is. You may use it as a spread on toast or as a dip for fresh fruits. I encourage you to go on to step two. This entails whipping cream and folding in the lime curd. It is that simple! Layer the mousse in a glass with fresh mango and let chill for an elegant dessert. It is sure to win high praise!



Lime Curd:
Honey Lime Mousse
  • lime curd ( see above)
  • 1/2 pint heavy cream
  • 1 large ripe mango peeled and diced


  1. Grate the zest of 3 limes into a quart-sized, heavy, non-reactive saucepan.
  2. Whisk in the eggs, honey, and salt.
  3. Squeeze enough limes to make 1/2 cup of lime juice. Add to mixture
  4. Add the butter in small pieces
  5. Whisk the mixture over medium-low heat . Scrape the sides and bottom, being careful not to scorch the bottom. Whisk continually until the mixture starts to thicken and bubble for a few seconds.
  6. Use a silicone spatula to pour the curd through a fine-mesh strainer set over a bowl. Press gently on any solids. Scrape the bottom of the strainer to capture all the curd into the bowl. Pour the curd into a covered container.
  7. Chill before using. The curd will thicken in the refrigerator and last for up to 10 days.  It can be frozen and thawed as well. Now, on to the next step!
  8. Whip the heavy cream in a medium size bowl
  9. Stir in the lime curd into the whipped cream to make the mousse.
  10. Layer the lime mousse with the diced mangos in a small glass. Chill for an hour or up to overnight.
  11. Top with a flower or a sprig of mint if desired. Enjoy this tart and creamy delight. Onodelicious!
