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
- 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.
- Add marshmallows and stir into the hot strawberries until they dissolve. Leave to cool.
- Whip the cream until it holds its shape then fold into the cooled strawberries.
- Divide into eight little jars and chill for approximately 2 hrs, or until set.
