White chocolate and strawberry mousse

There’s lots of lovely sunshine forecast for the Bank Holiday weekend, so who wants to be stuck in a stuffy kitchen all day!

This yummy white chocolate and strawberry mousse is the perfect sunny day dessert to share….or not…with your favourite people!

What you’ll need:

  1. 750g strawberries
  2. 2 tbsp lemon juice
  3. 225g white chocolate, grated
  4. 7g powdered gelatine
  5. 450ml double cream
  6. 30g ice sugar

What you’ll need to do:  

  1. Place half of the strawberries into a blender and purée until smooth, then add the lemon juice to the bowl.
  2. Slice the remaining strawberries and add to the purée.
  3. Melt the grated chocolate slowly in a bowl over simmering water.
  4. In a small bowl, add the gelatine to about 50ml oz of water and leave to rest for five minutes.
  5. Place a quarter of the cream along with all the icing sugar into a pan and simmer until warm. Add the gelatine water and stir for five minutes over a low heat until dissolved.
  6. Pour the cream and gelatine mix into the melted chocolate and stir until smooth. Add the strawberry purée.
  7. Place the remaining cream into a bowl. Whip the cream until soft peaks form when the whisk is removed from the bowl. Gradually fold the cream into the chocolate and strawberry mix.
  8. Chill in fridge for three hours and serve.
