Saffron Mango Mousse is a quick, easy and fabulously light and airy dessert. It has that “WOW” look that will look like you have put in hours of work in the kitchen. The beautiful color of the Mango, intensified with the color of Saffron, the creaminess of the Cream Cheese and the lightness of the Sour Cream, topped with the nutty Pistachios! The combination is “melt in your mouth goodness”.
Call it a “Saffron Mango (Egg-less) Mousse” or your version of “Kesar Mango Shrikhand” – this one is a winner!
