1. Put the cardamom seeds into a non-stick saucepan with the egg yolks and sugar and beat with a wooden spoon.

5. Add the Cointreau and leave the custard to cool in a clean bowl, stirring occasionally.

6. Puree the mango and fruit juices together in a food processor until smooth, then stir the puree into the custard.

7. As soon as the mixture is a little cooler, stir in the dissolved gelatine.

8. Set aside until the mixture is cold.

9. Whisk the egg whites in a separate bowl until they form stiff peaks.

10. Add a little of the custard to the whisked egg whites and fold in gently.

11. Quickly fold the egg white mixture into the remaining custard using a metal spoon and transfer to a large glass serving bowl.

12. Level off the top and freeze for 40 minutes, to help it set quickly.

14. Chill in the refrigerator for 4 hours or until it is firm and set.
