Oh, I have to laugh a little about this recipe. The whole idea was built around these adorable tea-cup molds I got them for Christmas a couple of years ago and had not used them yet. I have been wanting to use them for a while and finally decided I was going to make a recipe specifically for them. That is how I decided to make a strawberry mousse. Woo, lightening a mousse is not easy. The basis of a mousse is usually fresh whipped cream. I cannot use a few cups of whipped cream and consider it a light recipe. This recipe took lots of trial and error to finally get it right. I wanted lots of strawberry flavor and a thick and creamy consistency. The two do not easily go hand in hand.
The first time I made Strawberry Mousse, it was lacking strawberry flavor. Oops! That is not good for a strawberry mousse recipe, and the consistency was runny. In other words, a total fail. On the second attempt, I still wanted more strawberry flavor, but the consistency was much better. Finally after the third try, I was thrilled with the outcome. Fresh strawberries naturally flavor this mousse plus it is smooth and creamy. My perseverance paid off. Now I’ve got a delicious recipe, and I can use these adorable tea-cup molds. I am happy, happy, happy. Hope you are too. Give this recipe a try and let me know. Post a picture on Instagram with #fooddonelight so I can see it.
