Fresh Strawberry Mousse

This Fresh Strawberry Mousse is a great make ahead dessert for summer entertaining. I always thought of mousse as one of those restaurant dishes that I would never be able to make at home. That was until I found out about this method and I realise that making strawberry mousse is actually not so complicated! The only special equipment you need is a candy thermometer.

The method is described in more detail below, but all you’ll need to do is puree some strawberries with a little sugar. Prepare some sugar syrup and separately prepare some gelatin. Then combine beaten egg whites and sugar with whipped cream and fold in the pureed strawberry. This mousse comes together beautifully! You’ll be wondering why you avoided mousse for so long!

To make Fresh Strawberry Mousse, you will need the following ingredients:
