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.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
