Coconut, banana and mango mousse

    2 hours 20 min

    This is a recipe that I've changed and swapped and messed about with for a long time, but now I think I finally have it. It has wonderful flavours and is a treat for all the family. It takes a little time but is really worth the effort.

    1. Put gelatine and orange juice in a heatproof glass dish and set over a pan of boiling water. When gelatine has dissolved, stir until smooth and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
    2. Peel the mangoes and cut as much flesh away from the stones as possible. Put in a food processor along with the bananas, icing sugar and coconut milk and blend until smooth.
    3. Tip the mixture into a large bowl and stir in the cooled gelatine.
    4. Whip the cream until soft peaks form. Add a large spoonful to the fruit puree and fold in gently with a metal spoon and a figure 8 movement. Fold in the rest of the cream until the mixture is light, airy and smooth.
    5. Divide the mixture between 4 dessert bowls and chill for 2 hours until set.
    6. When ready to serve sprinkle with cocoa powder and coconut and serve.
