Strawberry Mousse

This strawberry mousse is an easy summerly dessert for strawberry lovers. Serve the mousse with a simple strawberry sauce and garnish it with some mint leaves. In the directions I'm a bit vague on the gelatin. There are different gelatins available. So just follow the package directions.

Ingredients:
300g strawberries (hulled)
140g powdered sugar
200g yogurt (10% fat)
6 sheets unflavored gelatin (or gelatin for 0.5 liter fluid)
2 Tablespoons water
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
peel of 1/2 lemon (grated)
250 mL whipping cream

Directions:

  1. Prepare gelatin according to package directions.
  2. Put strawberries in a blender and add lemon peel, lemon juice and powdered sugar. Blend until smooth. Fold in yogurt by hand until mixed well.
  3. Dissolve the prepared gelatin in 2 tablespoons warm water. Mix gelatin into the strawberry mixture by hand until well blended. Put into the refrigerator.
  4. Whip whipping cream.
  5. When the strawberry mixture is starting to set and has the same consistency as the whipping cream, fold in the whipping cream carefully.
  6. Put the mousse into the refrigerator and let set for about 4 hours until mousse is ready to serve.


Serve it with a simple strawberry sauce. To make the sauce puree fresh strawberries. Sweeten the puree with powdered sugar to your liking. Add some lemon juice for a fresh note.

Are they tedious to make? Do you always make your own jam?
