Strawberry Mousse with Fresh StrawberriesThe strawberry mousse is one of our favorite recipes. It tastes light, fruity and sweet at the same time. And especially in the evening it's a wonderful "before-bed snack".
Kids and adults both love the strawberry mousse. This makes it perfect for kids birthday parties. Depending on the age of your kinds you can have all kinds of neat decoration on top of a big bowl of mousse.
If you happen to have left-overs, they will last 4-5 days in the fridge.
The strawberry mousse recipe is very flexible: if you don't have fresh strawberries, you could also use canned ones or even strawberry syrup. It'll taste almost the same.
- 1 cup strawberries
- 1 cup farmers cheese or cream cheese (20% fat)
- 1 lemon
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 5 leaves gelatine
Squeeze the lemon and keep lemon juice. Separate egg white from the yolk.
Soak the leaf gelatine at least 5 minutes in cold water. Squeeze out excess water and place in saucepan.
Place two thirds of the strawberries in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add farmers cheese, lemon juice and sugar and process for 15 more seconds.
Melt the gelatine slowly over gentle heat. Once it has melted, add the gelatine carefully to the strawberry mixture. Put in fridge and wait til the mousse starts to gelatinize.
Beat white of egg and gently mix into strawberry mousse. Put the mousse 2-3 hours into fridge.
Then spoon the strawberry mousse into dessert dishes. Top each dessert with 2 whole strawberries.
Hope you will enjoy this delicious strawberry mousse.
