For a dinner party, I always start the days preparation with dessert. More often than not, dessert needs to set or cool or settle and so if this is done first thing in the morning, it has the longest time to be ready. This marshmallow mousse is really easy to make and tastes great.
This recipe was adapted from my friend Jan Please do not look at the photograph of this mousse and decide you do not want to make it. It really is a great dessert and one I could make over and over again if it were not for the blog. You see, at the time of writing this post I had only been blogging for a few years. I did not think conceptually about my photographs. And when I took them I did not even look what was going on in the frame. The martina glass was placed onto my butchers block and you can see the edge of it so clearly. As well as the corner of my fridge, and the floor mat. That is a necessity as we have dogs. So much has changed since then. For one, I have a camera and do not rely on my cell phone. And the other is that I take more care with composition. But the one thing that has not changed is the quality of recipes I share with you.
- 20 sugar free pink marshmallows
- 60 mls milk
- 250 mls thick yoghurt
- 5 mls vanilla purée
- 60 mls Amarula (or any liqueur that takes your fancy)
- 8 strawberries, cut into quarters
- place the marshmallows and the strawberries into a sauce pan and over a low heat stir until the marshmallows have melted
- add the Amarula and then remove from the heat
- mix the vanilla purée into the yoghurt
- add the marshmallow mixture and stir well
- place one strawberry at the bottom of a Martini glass per person
- evenly distribute the mousse
- place in the fridge until just before serving
- place a meringue into the centre of each glass
- garnish each glass with another strawberry
- serve with some pink champagne

OOOF.. NOT a good idea to read your blog when I’m dieting. So yummy… not sure who’s worse today, you or Jan.. oh yes.. you both made similar puds! :).
Jan’s pud was the full cream one – mine was for Colly Wolly (if she has been to visit?), the ‘nearly diet version’
