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.

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

  • 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.
