1/2half ripe mango, peeled, seed removed
1medium sweet potato300 g, unpeeled
80mlcoconut creamjust the solid bit
1whole lemonpeeled (see Instructions below for how to do that) plus zest of 1 lemon
Preheat the oven to 400 F/ 200 C/ gas mark 6. Place the sweet potato on a baking tray and bake for 30 minutes or until it's tender (check if it's done by inserting a fork in it). Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely.
In a blender combine the fresh and dried mango, silken tofu, sweet potato (only the flesh) and lemon zest. Set aside.
Peel the lemon by first cutting off the tops, then standing the lemon on one end and slicing the skin off (including the thin white skin around the fruit as it's bitter) all the way around.
Add the peeled lemon to the blender and puree all the ingredients until smooth and velvety.
Divide the mousse between individual pots/cups and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
If you bake the sweet potato ahead and refrigerate until you are ready to use it this recipe will take 10 minutes to make!
