MANGO, COCONUT AND JASMINE VERRINES

Mango, Coconut and Jasmine Verrines

Sometimes I see the picture of a dish and I just can’t get it off my mind until I make it!  Has it ever happened to you?  I guess that it the reason why I try and limit my use of Pinterest or I would probably be spending all day long in the kitchen!!  Not that I would mind, but something tells me that my family would… hehehe  Anyhow… I had the above mentioned problem when I saw these verrines.  If you know me, you also know that I love small portioned sweets and that I would choose a cream, mousse or panna cotta any day over a slice of cake.  So, these cute verrines nicely fitted my personal idea of the perfect dessert.  And yesss, they were good.  The only thing I would change is I would not refrigerate the chocolate ganache as suggested by the original recipe, as it became too firm for my liking… I would prefer a creamier topping!  But other than that, it tasted soooo yummy!  I love mango and coconut and the hint of jasmine was amazing… so refreshing!  The perfect dessert to eat with your eyes closed, dreaming of the tropics!  Enjoy!

Ingredients
Mango and Jasmine Compote
  • 300 gms – 10.5 oz. mango pulp (fresh or tinned), puréed
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 leaves (4 gms – 0.15 oz.) gelatine
  • Jasmine essence to taste
Mango and Coconut Ganache
  • 100 gms – 3.5 oz. white chocolate
  • 60 ml – 2 oz. coconut cream
  • 50 gms – 1.75 oz. mango pulp (fresh or tinned), puréed
  • 1 or 2 tbsp coconut powder or grated coconut
  • 1 lime (grated zest only)
Instructions
Mango and Jasmine Compote
  1. Put the gelatine sheets in a bowl filled with cold water for 10 minutes or until soft.
  2. Heat the mango pulp with the water and sugar and mix until the sugar dissolves. Take it out of the fire, squeeze the excess water from the gelatine sheets and add them to the hot mango pulp. Mix well until completely incorporated.
  3. Add the jasmine essence and stir.
  4. Pour the compote into the verrines/shot glasses and freeze for 1 hour.
Mango and Coconut Ganache
  1. Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler (or in the microwave).
  2. Heat the mango pulp with the coconut cream and when it’s hot, slowly pour it over the melted chocolate. Make sure you mix well while doing this, so you get a smooth cream.
  3. Add the grated lime zest and the grated coconut. Mix well and keep it aside to cool down.
  4. When at room temperature, pipe it on top of the mango and jasmine compote with a piping bag.
  5. Decorate with some cachous and serve.
Notes
The original recipe advised to prepare the ganache the previous day and keep it in the fridge. I did so and the ganache hardened! So, if you want a creamier ganache, do not put it in the fridge and serve it at room temperature (as per the above instructions).

  1. This sounds delicious! I like the idea that you can use tinned mango too.

    Che bei bicchierini e che ricetta molto stuzzicante!!! I’ll try it, but for now I really like the orange color and the use of ingredients that make me think of Summer (’cause Summer, here in Italy, it’s a far far dream 0_o and we’re tired of wait for it…just a little bit!). Have a nice day! Daniela
