In the JNF Kitchen: Super delicious (and super easy) mango mousse

This #RecipeOfTheWeek comes to us from the Central Arava, where it's the beginning of mango season! What better way to celebrate than to whip a delicious Mango mousse? The Arava is a key focus of JNF's Blueprint Negev initiative, which aims to bring communities to Israel's south, away from the congested and highly priced center of the country.

The Central Arava is a wonderful place to visit, live, raise a family- and a farm! What residents in the area lack in natural resources, they make up for in ingenious agricultural solutions. All year round, the tastiest peppers, artichokes, melons, and cucumbers come out of the Central Arava.

Enjoy this #RecipeOfTheWeek, and if you make any of these recipes, be sure to send a photo of your creation to teddyherzl18@gmail.com or tweet it to @JNFUSA with the hashtag #JNFfoodie. We might share it! 


2 ripe mangos, squashed into a puree
2 containers of whipping cream
1 tablespoon instant vanilla pudding powder
1-2 tablespoons sugar


Whip the cream with the instant vanilla until you get a rich, stable cream. Fold in the mango puree and the sugar until completely blended. Pour into serving cups and keep in the fridge until you are ready to be wowed!
