[Plane]made Mango Mousse

[Plane]made Mango Mousse

If you haven’t purchased the portable blender I linked in my toolbox, do so NOW! It will make you a total rockstar on the plane. Fresh smoothies in the morning? No issue. Perfectly blended vinaigrettes for salads? DONE!! It is such a useful tool to really “up” your onboard DIY game. I’ll link it again here.

Charges with only a USB
Be smart with flavor profiles; I took a quick peek at my passenger’s Instagram and saw they ate fresh mango. Therefore, I knew to incorporate that flavor component in my dining service.

Once you have your portable blender charged and ready to go— lets break down this recipe onboard!


  • 1 Fresh Mango, cubed into small chunks
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • 1tsp of sugar (1 pack of sugar)
  • Whipped Cream for garnish
  • Berries for garnish
  • Sugar Pearls for garnish (optional)
  • Mint for Garnish


  • Cover mango cubes with heavy whipping cream (I never measure anything, always eyeball and go by instinct, but if I had to guess it was about 1/2 a cup)
  • Add 1 pack of sugar
  • Blend until creamy and smooth by turning the blender up and down periodically
  • Pour into double wall espresso cups
  • Garnish with Whipped cream ( the creaminess texture is a nice balance and it helps tame the sour/sweetness of the mango)
  • For additional garnishes- use your creativity, berries are super complimentary and I found these super shiny edible sugar pearls that I thought looked cool and added fun texture.

Side-note: I love using my double wall espresso cups for desserts, they make everything look elegant and beautiful.
