Strawberry Mousse

Few of our friends went Strawberry Picking over the weekend and got us a huge bowl of fresh strawberries. Every time I get strawberries in huge quantities, I end up losing half of them as you cant store them for more than 2 days. So, this time I made a puree out of it immediately and stored it in the refrigerator. Hoping that it would work out and I would be able to relish them for longer this time....

Strawberries are very rich in fibre content and nutritional value. Did you know that around 5-7 strawberries would contain more Vitamin-C than one whole Orange??!!!? Studies have also shown that cultivated strawberries and the phytochemicals from strawberries reduce the risk of cancer!!!! So...... Eat strawberries and stay healthy!! :)
I have for you the recipe for Strawberry Mousse today.This will be my entry for Meeta's Monthy Mingle- Spring is in the Air!!


12- 15 Fresh Strawberries, washed and de-stalked
1 cup Whipped Cream
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
1 tbsp Lime Juice

  1. Set aside 3-4 strawberries for garnishing and blend the rest into a puree. DO NOT add water while blending.

  2. Add sugar, lime juice and mix well;Keep aside.

  3. In a mixing bowl, beat the whipped cream until it becomes a little stiff.

  4. Add the 5-6 tbsp of the strawberry puree and mix well.

  5. Cool in refrigerator for around 2 hrs. Garnish with remaining strawberry pieces.

  6. Spoon into individual bowls and serve chilled. Enjoi!!
