Quick and easy, yes, but that's not worth producing a boring dessert. The mango was so diluted with the whipped cream and egg whites that the flavor, not to mention the color, suffered. The amount of honey didn't seem generous enough so I sweetened the cream with 2 T. of sugar as I whipped it. Even with that I wouldn't call the finished mousse sweet and I can't imagine how even MORE boring and flat this would have been without the additional sweetener. Further, I agree with another reviewer who remarked that the texture was "odd" - indeed it was, and I agree with her that it is because of the puree which still, of course, retains fibrous bits of mango. For a succinct way of describing this, this tastes like mildly mango flavored, non-smooth egg whites. The rich, juicy, sweet mango would have been infinitely better on its own, or even topped with fresh whipped cream. I don't necessarily have to have a rich, sweet, robustly flavored dessert, but this all but put my taste buds to sleep.
