A Refreshing Summer Dessert: Raspberry Mousse
The other day I realized my sweet tooth was asking for something fruity, but not just plain fruit…something refreshing and different. So I remembered I had some extra raspberries in the fridge and how my Grandma use to make this delicious mouse (we called if “foam”) out of raspberries or strawberries. So here you go!
- 1/2 cup raspberries
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg white*
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar (optional)
- Extra raspberries or mint leaves for decorating (optional)
In a deep bowl mash the raspberries, add sugar and mix well. Then add the egg white and fluff with the mixer until it firms up. You can add the cream of tarter to make it firm up faster. When the mouse starts forming into peaks (it may take up to 5 mins) it means it is ready. Put it in cups and decorate it with raspberries and mint (optional). Refrigerate for 1 hour or eat it right away!
Bon appétit !
*keep in mind this recipe has raw egg whites, make sure you have fresh eggs, you assume the risk…kind of the same when you have tiramisu made with classic recipe, I have never had a problem consuming it, but everyone is different, so be cautious.
