Forget slaving away in the kitchen for hours, this Spring-time-favourite dessert is extremely easy to prepare and just as delicious. What’s great about mousse is the fact that you can make it today and still enjoy the results tomorrow and the day after that! Simply pop it in the fridge and serve as you desire. Top this tasty treat off with whipped cream or Greek yoghurt for a tangy note and a few mint leaves. We love how light and fresh Strawberry mousse is, not to mention how pretty it looks once completed. Go ahead and indulge.
INGREDIENTS: 900g strawberries 400g can condensed milk Juice of ½ lime or lemon 1 cup orange juice 2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin 3 egg whites ⅓ cup Illovo sugar Whipped cream DIRECTIONS: Wash the strawberries and reserve some of them to use as a garnish. Process the rest in a blender with the condensed milk and lime juice. In the meantime, bloom the gelatin in the orange juice. When fully hydrated place in a small saucepan and heat over low heat, stirring until the gelatin dissolves. Cool at room temperature and add to the strawberry mixture. Beat the egg whites in the mixer until foamy. Add the sugar, a tablespoon at a time, and when firm fold this meringue into the strawberry mixture. Pour into nice glasses or a lightly oiled baking pan, and refrigerate until set, (about 4 – 6 hours or overnight). To serve: unmold if using a baking pan, add a dollop of whipped cream, and garnish with strawberries. Note: You may want to add some mint leaves next to the strawberries.
