This no-bake soft fluffy mousse has a great strawberry taste and smells gorgeous!
There are only a few ingredients, it is a really really easy dessert to make and looks pretty chic too!
Look at it, all lovely and light and airy!
It’s made very quickly although as with most mousses, it does need a couple of hours in the fridge to set. It can of course be made ahead, the evening before for example. It would also be nice served as a smaller portion with a couple of other desserts, maybe something chocolatey and something crunchy…..
Preparation : 10 mins + 2 hours chilling time
Ingredients : for 5 good servings or 1 large bowl
250 g fresh strawberries
25 g sugar
140 g marshmallows, halved
150 ml whipping cream
How to: Cut the strawberries in half and put all but 5 of them into a pan along with 100ml water and the sugar. Simmer the strawberries until soft enough to mash, 3 -5 mins. Remove from heat and squash the berries, using a fork, until pulpy or smooth. I used my blender until I had a very smooth sauce. Next add the marshmallows, then stir them into the hot strawberries until they dissolve. If necessary, reheat the pan. Leave to cool.
Whip the cream until it holds its shape, then fold into the cooled strawberry mix. Spoon the Fluff into one bowl or separate pots and chill for about 2 hrs, or until set. Cut the reserved strawberries in half and use to decorate.
