Strawberry Mousse

Ingredients:

 

1 cup or about 1 punnet chopped fresh strawberries

1 cup frozen pure coconut milk/cream ice cubes (we like Ayam)

2 tbsp pure beef gelatin powder

1/2 cup filtered/spring water

Sweetener of choice. I use about 1-2 tbsp raw honey

or 1 tsp green stevia powder

 

Optional:

1/2 tsp pure vanilla (paste, bean, extract, powder)

Garnish with a sprinkle of desiccated coconut and/or cacao nibs

 

Kitchen Gadgets:

 

Blender

Small saucepan

Silicon spatula

Whisk

Ice cube tray

Serving bowls/cups

 

Method: 


1. Pour water into the saucepan and place on the stove top without heat on

2. Gently sprinkle the gelatin powder evenly over the surface of the water to 'bloom' the gelatin (i.e. soften it)

3. Turn the heat on and whisk constantly until all granules are dissolved and the liquid starts to bubble (it needs to be hot for this recipe to work)

4. Place coconut milk/cream ice cubes into the blender along with the strawberries, honey and vanilla 

5. Pour the gelatin mixture in and blitz on high until no lumps of coconut or strawberry remain

6. Quickly pour the blended mixture into serving dishes then place in the fridge for just a few minutes to finish setting

The technique of blending on high-speed hot gelatin liquid with frozen liquid creates air bubbles that set instantly. Hence, mousse!
