Recipe for strawberry mousse
500 g strawberries
1/2 lemon juice
100 g of sugar
20 cl unsweetened condensed milk
A few mint leaves for garnish
Place the condensed milk in a bowl and place the bowl in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (or in the freezer for at least 10 minutes).
Rinse and peel the strawberries.
Mix them with the lemon juice. Add sugar and possibly the strawberry liqueur, mix well.
Take the condensed milk out of the cold and beat it with an electric whisk until it forms a very light foam.
Carefully mix in the mixed strawberries and the milk foam. Serve in cups or ramekins, garnish with mint leaves.
Our advice: be careful, don’t make this recipe the day before (the foam may fall back). Otherwise, use gelatin as follows: soak 4 small sheets of gelatin in cold water for a few minutes. Heat 4 tablespoons of water or raspberry liqueur or lemon juice. When it starts to simmer, take it off the heat, squeeze out the gelatin and mix it with the hot liquid, stirring well, until it is homogeneous. Then mix with the mixed strawberries before adding the milk foam. Leave overnight.
