Strawberry Marshmallow Mousse

Strawberry Marshmallow Mousse

Strawberries are coming in thick and fast at the moment so I'm on a constant hunt for new recipes I can use them in. You already know I'm addicted to this Strawberry Torte (I've made it 4 times in the last 3 weeks), but I wanted to find something a little bit quicker to put together.

This strawberry mousse uses marshmallows as the setting agent, a little bit of sugar (which next time I might even leave out), some double cream and of course strawberries (I might try making it with blackberries and raspberries in the future). I was a bit concerned it might be too sweet, but I needn't have worried, it was just perfect! The kids loved it equally as much as the adults.

STRAWBERRY MARSHMALLOW MOUSSE

| Serves: 4  | Prep Time: 20 Minutes plus chilling | Cook Time: -  | Total Time: 20 Minutes plus chilling |

Ingredients:


  • 250g fresh strawberries , halved if large
  • 25g golden caster sugar
  • 140g marshmallows chopped
  • 200ml double cream

Instructions:


  • Step 1: Put the strawberries into a pan along with 100ml water and the sugar. Over a medium heat, cook strawberries until soft. Take off the heat and process in a food processor. Tip the strawberry mixture back into the pan and add the marshmallows, then stir them in until they dissolve. Leave to cool.
  • Step 2: Whip the cream until it holds its shape. Fold the cream into the cooled strawberry mix, then spoon into one bowl or 4 separate pots and chill for about 2 hrs, or until set.

  2. Lovely Beth and do you know, I couldn't usually make this because of the marshmallows, but my friend Andrew has just come back from America with some vegan marshmallows for me. They are lovely and taste just the same as regular marshmallows. Don't know why we don't have them here. I might try this with blueberries :)

  8. It's hard to imagine that the marshmallows in the movusse were nicer than simple clotted cream.
