Mango Cloud Recipe
I remember eating my Mom’s Pink Cloud, growing up. It was a refreshing summertime treat, and pretty good for you. It was a cooling concoction of cottage cheese, crushed pineapple, strawberry gelatin, and whip cream. It was like eating a pink tropical tasting cloud. I wanted to make this dessert so my daughter could eat it, and enjoy it as much as I did when I was growing up. That is why I created Orange Cloud….Mango Cloud, whatever you call it. It is simply refreshing and a very versatile recipe.
Try it with different fruits, flavors, and can be made dairy free. This recipe is Gluten-free and free of 7 of the top 8 major allergens.
To make Mango Cloud you will need.
24oz. tub of cottage cheese ( to make dairy free sub puree blended silken tofu, then crumble up firm tofu to recreate the chunks of cottage cheese if you can tolerate soy. Can omit the cottage cheese as well.)
3 oz flavored Orange Gelatin (can sub pectin, and orange flavoring )
12 oz of diced mangos in juice. Keep the juice do not drain.
8 oz. of True Whip Topping keep frozen ( can sub whip topping, or coconut whip topping. If not using cottage cheese double the amount of whip 16 oz. Keep 8 oz frozen, and thaw out the other 8oz. )
In a small saucepan over medium-low heat bring the mangos with fruit juice up to a simmer will take about 15 minutes. Then stir in the orange gelatin, and stir till the gelatin dissolves into the juice will take around 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the fruit infused gelatin mixture from the stove, and let cool for around 10 minutes.
Put the 8 oz frozen whip in a mixing bowl, and add the gelatin fruit mixture. Stir the mixture until the whip is smooth, and then add the cottage cheese stirring until it is well incorporated
Then place into a dish or dishes appropriate for refrigeration, and allow to set up in the refrigerator for approx. 2 hours.
*if omitting cottage cheese add in the last 8 oz container of the thawed out whip to the mixture last, and allow to set up in the refrigerator for the same amount of time.
After approx 2 hours enjoy as a cool dessert, or as a side to a light lunch.
