Why we love it

For a light and airy dessert, you cannot go wrong with a mousse. From the French verb émousser meaning “make less blunt”. With its frothy texture, this easy strawberry mousse recipe will appeal to the young and old alike.

Now, there are all types of flavors of mousse you can make, almost any type of fruit will do. And for non-fruit lovers, chocolate mousse as well is a classic.

But for the moment we can stick to the simple strawberry that is easy to find and is rather straightforward to turn into a mousse. A yummy little dessert for an afternoon snack, wouldn’t you say?

Can you freeze the mousse?

I wouldn’t recommend it because it will lose its texture and its aroma. In addition, because the egg whites are uncooked, it will risk turning.
