Strawberry Marshmallow Mousse

Labels: { , , }


This recipe was really easy, quick to make and tasted wonderful. The combination of the delicate flavour and pleasant tartness of the strawberries with the creaminess and sweetness of the marshmallows is unbeatable!

  • 280 g Fresh strawberries, halved if large
  • 25 g Vanilla sugar
  • 100 ml Water
  • 140 g Mini marshmallows
  • 200 ml Double cream
  1. Put all but 3 strawberries into a pan along with the water and the sugar. Over a medium heat, cook strawberries until soft enough to mash, about 3 minutes. Take off the heat and squash the berries, using a fork, until pulpy. Add the marshmallows, then stir them into the hot strawberries until they dissolve. Leave to cool.
  2. Whip the cream until it holds its shape. Fold the cream into the cooled strawberry mix, then spoon into one bowl or separate pots and chill for about 2 hours, or until set. Cut the reserved strawberries in half and use to decorate.

Yummmmm, that's kinda like that nutella marshmallow mousse I made a coupla months ago. Loved the mousse texture but not the chocolate so much. Good to know the method works with other flavors! :)
