Strawberry marshmallow mousse

These delicious do-ahead dessert is so easy and don’t take long to make up.  The recipe is from BBC food. I have not made any change but added a few mint leaves that gave way to a nice flavor.

How to –

  • Fresh strawberries– 250 grams, halved (Set aside 2-3 berried if you want to garnish)
  • Caster sugar – 25 grams
  • Mini marshmallows – 140 grams
  • Mint leave – 4
  • Double cream – 200 ml
  • Water – 100 ml

You need –

In a sauce pan put strawberries, mint leave, water and sugar. Cook over a medium heat until soft enough to mash.
Turn off the heat and mash the berries, using a fork, until pulpy. Add the marshmallows into the hot strawberries and stir continuously until the mallows have completely dissolved. Leave to cool.
In a clean and dry bowl, whip the cream until it holds its shape. Gently fold the cream into the cooled strawberry mix.

Spoon into the serving bowls and chill for about 2 hours or till set. 

You can garnish with the reserved strawberries and serve..
