I'm looking for a recipe for orange mousse without eggs, but hopefully with gelatine. I've tried to search for some recipes on google but didn't really find anything too good. I have a very delicious recipe for mango mousse that I found on google that I've tried a lot of times. It would be great if someone could guide me with substituting it with orange rind/juice. I know that Orange recipes can become a bit bitter if not handled properly.

Here's the Mango mousse recipe, which is a part of a mango mousse cake.

  • 450 gr. mango
  • 75 gr. sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons gelatin
  • 500 ml. heavy cream.

Puree the mango flesh with the sugar and lemon juice. Strain to remove fiber from mango. Put one third of the mango puree into the pot and stir in the gelatin. Let the gelatin soften, and warm over low heat, stirring until dissolves. Remove and add remaining mango puree, and allow to cool. While cooling, whip the cream. Stir in mango into the whipped cream, transfer into containers and chill.

Welcome to Seasoned advice. I am sorry, but recipe requests are off-topic. Feel free to come back and ask questions about problems with an existing recipe. – rumtscho Aug 11 '12 at 10:26
@rumtscho, I disagree here--this doesn't seem to me as much of a recipe request as looking for a substitution. I realize both sides could be argued, but are you interested in looking for voice from the community? – Ray Aug 12 '12 at 3:00
@Ray: Thanks for that and yes you're absolutely correct. I do have a very very good recipe for mango mousse that I found on google and I've tried a lot of times. I just want to know how much of orange rind/juice I need to replace the mango with. I'll edit my question so it explains the problem a little bit better. – Divi Aug 12 '12 at 6:03
@Ray it used to be two sentences which only asked to "plz give me teh recipe". But with the current edit, it is indeed a reasonable substitution question. – rumtscho Aug 12 '12 at 12:57
I would never give up a mango mousse for an orange one. – Blessed Geek Aug 14 '12 at 5:05

you could try googling a mouse recipe using marshmellows. I know they exist and are egg free. I have never tried one myself but heard of them.

I do have a beautiful mango mousse recipe that uses gelatine but I don't know what and how much to replace for an orange mousse recipe. – Divi Aug 11 '12 at 5:32
