One of my favorite puree recipes are Mango Moose Cups. They are easy to make, and most importantly very delicious.
- 1 tsp gelatin powder
- 2 tbsp water
- 5 oz mango puree
- 2 tbsp granulated white sugar (or more to taste)
- 5 oz heavy whipping cream
Dissolve gelatin into 1 tbsp of water. Heat remaining 1 tbsp water until it is hot/almost boiling and add to gelatin, stirring until gelatin is fully dissolved. Add gelatin and puree into blender and mix on high speed until fully blended. In a stand mixer, add 2 tbsp sugar and heavy cream and whip on high speed until stiff peaks form. Slowly add puree into the whipped cream, folding it into the cream until completely mixed and uniform in color. Pour into individual portion cups and refrigerate to set.
It is very important to use pretty glassware that is the right size for the right person. One person may require a 4 oz glass and one a 12 oz glass. It is important to note that personal preferences are very important in all food preparation. Here is an example of a pretty glass.
(please note that the garnishment on top of the mouse is for decoration designed to make the cup look appetizing. Decoration should be removed prior to consumption for those that are on a pure diet)
