Strawberry Mousse

Summer is just around the corner, so what better dessert to add to your meal or BBQ than a light and refreshing strawberry mousse?

The ingredients used for this recipe are for 4 to 6 people, so feel free to adjust the quantities.
You will need:
  • 400 grams of strawberries
  • Up to a 100 grams of sugar ... taste one of your strawberries first, and if you feel that it is sweet enough, reduce the quantity of sugar
  • 250 ml of whipped cream
  • 2 egg whites*
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Resting time: 1 to 3 hours

Start by removing the strawberries' stems.  Then clean the strawberries and strain the water.

In a blender, add the strawberries and the sugar, and blend until it becomes a purée (you can leave some strawberry chunks).

In a bowl, mix the whipped cream with a hand-mixer until it is nicely firm.

Once the whipped cream is nicely firm, add the strawberry purée and continue mixing.

In another bowl, mix the egg whites with a hand-mixer ...

... until they become fluffy and firm.

Gently add the egg whites to the whipped cream-strawberry mix.

Gently stir ...

... until you obtain a fluffy mousse.

Pour the mousse into individual ramekins or other containers, cover them with some plastic film, and place them in the fridge for 1 to 3 hours (don't let them sit too long in the fridge or your mousse will separate into a half-mousse, half-juice).

You can decorate your strawberry mousse with fresh strawberry pieces and enjoy it with Cadbury® Chocolate Fingers.

And the final step: Eat and enjoy!
