Step 1

Place the chopped strawberries in a pan with the cup of water, add the half cup of sugar and bring to a simmer. Let this boil until the strawberries become soft and mushy and the sugar is dissolved. Give it a taste, if needed you can add more sugar as per your taste. If the strawberries are sweet you will not need much, if they are tart you will need a bit more.

Step 2

Once satisfied with the sweetness, turn off the heat and immediately add the gelatine powder and mix it in well whilst it is still hot. Then place this pan in a bowl of cold/icy water to help begin to cool it down quickly. This mixture should be cool but do not allow it to set.

Step 3

Whilst it cools, whip the cream with 2 tbsp of sugar and the vanilla essence over a dish of icy water until soft peaks form. Do not over-whip.

Set aside or refrigerate for a while.

Step 4

Check on the strawberry pulp. If it has cooled completely, blend the mixture properly, then pour it back into a bowl. Add the whipped cream gradually whilst folding with a spatula until well combined. You can reserve some whipped cream for decoration.

Step 5

Serve into individual bowls, cover and refrigerate. Allow the mousse to set, preferably overnight.

Step 6

When ready to serve, decorate with a dollop of whipped cream, some chocolate shavings, sprinkles, sliced strawberries...anything you like!


Raspberries can be substituted for the strawberries.
