Strawberries season has started, isn't great? I can think hundreds of recipes with strawberries but today I am going to make a really easy and quick dessert with only four ingredients. This delicate treat is an excellent choice for vegetarians and whoever is desperate to lose a few pounds before hitting the beach but at the same time wants to keep his/her sweet tooth satisfied ! Strawberry mousse!
8 servings500 gr. ripe strawberries (17 oz)
200 gr. dairy-free cream (7 ounces)
200 gr. sugar or froctuse (7 ounces)
Wash the strawberries and cut the leaves off.
Pour water in a saucepan enough to cover- about enough to cover the bottom of the saucepan. Heat the water.
Add the sugar and allow it to melt, stirring occasionally
When it melts add the strawberries.
Remove the foam that accumulates.
Strawberries will be ready when syrup is thick but strawberries haven't melted completely. Let the syrup cool down.
Whisk the whipping cream just until it reaches stiff peaks.
Pour the half of strawberry syrup in the whipped cream and combine well.
In serving glasses pour the remaining strawberry syrup and then the whipped cream.
Leave them in the refrigerator for some hours.
Garnish with a strawberry and serve cold.
