strawberry mousse

Difficulty:Very easy  Time:Quick

INGREDIENTS (x 6 persons):

  • - 100 g powdered caster sugar
  • - 300 g soft ricotta cheese
  • - 100 g double cream
  • - 2 tablespoons light and mild acacia honey
  • - 1 handful fresh mint leaves
  • - 500 g strawberries, sliced


  • 1. In a large bowl, mix the ricotta cheese with the caster sugar and the honey. Thoroughly mix it until all soft and creamy.
  • 2. In a separate bowl whip the double cream up until it resembles a fluffy cloud then add it to the mix, stirring everything carefully.
  • 3. You can serve the mousse just as it is by pouring a generous amount of it in a small serving cup. Decorate it with roughly cut strawberries and fresh mint leaves. Finish with a dust of caster sugar on top, if you like.


  • - This recipe comes very nicely with any kind of fresh berries or other types of seasonal summer fruits you like, such as peaches.
  • - You can give an extra sweet flavour to your mousse by adding a teaspoon of mild honey on top in place of the caster sugar dust.
  • - In terms of flavour, I would suggest to use a double cream you can whip up instead of a ready-to-use whipped cream.
