In a small saucepan, sprinkle the gelatin over 1/4 cup (60 mL) cold water, let it soften for 1 minute, and heat the mixture over low heat, stirring, until the gelatin is dissolved. 

In a food processor, blend together the mango and yogurt for 2 minutes. Add the gelatin mixture and blend for another minute.

Divide the mousse into 4 dessert glasses. Chill the mousses for at least 4 hours or overnight. Garnish with mango slices to serve.


For an even lighter texture, give the yogurt mixture one last whisk before dividing into separate bowls to incorporate as much air into the mixture as possible before placing it into the refrigerator to set.
