Winter has just come to a close- quite late for the South of India- and although the temperature has only risen by a couple degrees, I am sweating up a storm! And, can I say, I miss the cold?
Everyone facing the brutal winter on the other side of the world probably think I am crazy but you know what I’d love? A good snowfall with snow that sticks to the ground, enough to make snowmen and have a snowball fight, but best of all to watch the wonder that is the silent white world of winter. I mean, that’s what winter means to me, not the measly breeze that graces us with its presence for a couple weeks a year.
Although I should be thankful, as with the cold, come my allergies. And then how would I make this luscious strawberry mousse and enjoy it?
Just imagine a strawberry cloud that melts in your mouth. Not cotton candy, because it’s pink, looks like a cloud and melts in your mouth. But a teaspoon of the lightest strawberry mousse topped with semi-sweet chocolate shavings which strikes the perfect balance of tart and sweet.
The best possible way to finish off any meal.
Sounds dreamy, right?
It’s a dream you can make true! With just three ingredients, you could be settling down to or placing in front of a loved one or bestie, this simple, yet decadent dessert.
Simple yet impressive.

3 Ingredients Strawberry Mousse for Two
Yield: 2 servings
1/3 cup+ 3 tbsp heavy whipping cream
4 tbsp pureed homemade strawberry jam or strawberry*
1/2 tsp confectioners’ sugar
- Keep whisk in freezer for a couple of minutes, makes it easier when whipping up cream. Whip heavy cream to firm peaks. When the bowl is tilted, it should stay in place.
- Using a stick blender, puree the strawberry jam with a 1/2 tsp of confectioners’ sugar.
- Fold the pureed strawberry jam into the whipped cream till fully combined. Spoon into bowls/ramekins and chill until time to serve.
Making Strawberry Jam
In a saucepan, toss a cup of chopped strawberries and 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar and cook on a low flame until thick. Taste and add more sugar according to your taste. Spoon out the frothy bit that floats on top and pour into a clean jar. You can freeze the extra you’ve got left over and thaw in refrigerator a day before you need it.
