How to Make Pink Berry Mousse Recipe
- Raspberries or Strawberries - Fresh or frozen berries is fine, the more you use in this recipe the deeper the pink color will be.
- Whole or whipping cream (or heavy cream)
Slice the strawberries/raspberries. In a blender or food processor, combine the sliced strawberries and sugar; puree until smooth. If there is a lot of juice you can strain it a little in a fine meshed sieve. Remove ½ cup of strawberry and raspberry puree and set aside. In a cold large bowl, beat together the cream and puree until stiff peaks form using a whisk attachment or electric mixer. Then fold in the remaining puree gently with a rubber spatula.
Divide the mousse among your fancy serving glasses, serving dishes or small bowl. Refrigerate for at least an hour or overnight, if desired. You can top with fresh sliced strawberries or raspberries, and serve. You can layer with fresh berries on top, edible roses, chocolate shavings, or even sprinkle gelatin powder!
This recipe does not use eggs, egg whites, egg yolks or a gelatin mixture. You can make a mousse cake but I recommend chilling between steps and cake layers! You can more or less raspberries to achieve the perfect beautiful pink color to your preference. Or you can add in other berries if you dont care about the pink color like blackberries and blueberries!
Tips for Making the Perfect Mousse
Making the perfect yet easy raspberry mousse recipe is pretty simple, but it can be hard to avoid the common pitfalls. Here are some tips for doing just that:
- Make sure your ingredients are chilled before whipping them together (the colder the better). If you don't have time to chill them in the fridge for at least an hour, place them in an ice bath and stir until they're cold enough.
- Don't overmix! Mousse is basically whipped cream and sugar, so you don't need to beat it until it's frothy. Just mix until everything is incorporated, then pour into a glass and refrigerate until set.
- Use a hand mixer or stand mixer on high speed until your mixture is fluffy and light in texture. You'll know it's done when you lift up the beater and see that there's no more liquid on top of it—it should all be incorporated into the mixture. Once it starts looking like whipped cream, stop mixing immediately.
- Don’t be afraid of flavors that might not seem like they belong together—like chocolate, vanilla extract, mint, lemon juice, or other sauces with the raspberries—because they totally do!
- You can also add a little bit of alcohol (such as rum or brandy) into your mousse for extra flavor! Considering it is a special occasion and all!
