KIDS: Strawberry Mousse Part I

I'm in experiment mode...getting ready for a gorgeous little girl's 3rd birthday party in a couple of weeks.

The experiment is to find a strawberry mousse that's light and fluffy, easy to whip up in advance, but contains no raw egg white.

Mousse Part I = is super simple to prepare and contains only 4 ingredients.  It turns out a very light and fluffy mousse (which ticks my box), however it does contain a bit of a "cheat" ingredient which I'm personally not 100% keen on (only because I don't eat them in normal circumstances).

But for a 3 year old birthday party...well, I'm guessing they'll be very happy....



Strawberry Mousse, Part I


250g strawberries, roughly chopped | 25g caster sugar | 140g mini marshmallows | 200ml cream |

Makes 8 little jars


  1. Place strawberries, sugar and 100ml water into a pan and over a medium heat, cook until soft enough to mash, about 3 mins. Take off the heat and squash the berries, using a fork, until pulpy.
  2. Add marshmallows and stir into the hot strawberries until they dissolve. Leave to cool.
  3. Whip the cream until it holds its shape then fold into the cooled strawberries.  
  4. Divide into eight little jars and chill for approximately 2 hrs, or until set.
