This Greek yogurt fruit pudding dessert is based on yogurt. Use your choice of Greek yogurt, plain yogurt or even a dairy-free option if you prefer. Flavored yogurt is also good although bear in mind that can add extra sugar and calories to this otherwise healthy dessert for kids.

My favourite part of this mango yogurt dessert is the fresh mango. I just love the flavour of mango – there isn’t another fruit quite like it! Use thawed mango pieces if you have those but I would encourage you to go with fresh. It’s just so sweet and juicy!

A teaspoon of vanilla extract is also tasty in this mango yogurt mousse. If you like you can just use those ingredients but you might also like to add some coconut cream to the mix or some honey or agave syrup for sweetness.

I like to garnish mine with whipped cream and I might add an edible flower to each if I’m feeling fancy! Fresh mint would also make a nice, contrasting garnish for this mango yogurt mousse. Serve it at breakfast along with another dish such as Bombay toast or egg bites.

Mango Yogurt Mousse Benefits

Mango isn’t only sweet and delicious but it’s also nutritious. This fruit is low in calories but rich in fibre. There is plenty of Vitamins A and C in every bite, along with calcium, zinc, Vitamin E, folate, and Vitamin B6 in smaller amounts. Mangoes are rich in antioxidants and just 3 ounces of this fruit gives you one of your five-a-day.

Now mango isn’t the only healthy ingredient in this mango yogurt dessert. The yogurt is also a healthy choice. Whether you are using Greek style yogurt here or another type, yogurt offers calcium, B vitamins, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus.

In short, yogurt provides a wide range of nutrients which are great for you. It’s a protein-rich food which is satisfying and it’s also believed beneficial for heart health.

Do bear in mind that some types of yogurt are pretty high in sugar, especially ones labeled as low-fat. I prefer to use plain Greek yogurt because the mango adds sweetness to the dessert. And if not, then I can easily add honey or another sweetener to get the balance just right.

Variations of this Healthy Mango Mousse Recipe

How to Store this Mango Mousse Recipe

Keep this mango yogurt mousse refrigerated until serving. I like to make it at least a couple of hours ahead so it’s well-chilled when it’s time to serve. It will keep for 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator.

You can freeze it for up to 2 months in an airtight container and that won’t affect the nutrients in there. However, expect it to separate a little bit when thawed out. Because this Greek yogurt fruit pudding dessert is so easy to make, I prefer to make it fresh each time. It really only takes a few minutes to prepare.
